This was my first book from Maurice Leblanc and it wasn't quite what I expected.

The story was gruesome and weird and dark; it was an interesting story. The legend was so unbelievable, but I was glad to still have a clear explanation of the events.

The whole thing was a bit too slow-paced though. A lot of detours that I found somewhat unecessary were made and it felt like the author was stretching the story at moments.

The characters were not that interesting. Maybe Vorski because he's such a frea

I liked this book, but it really annoyed me. The author would take long detours in writing and even though I could recognize a good intrigue, I constantly felt frustrated by the way the story was told. In the heat of the action, it would be good, but I needed to push myself to go on. And so, this book leaves me with an odd frustration feeling

Véronique is a BAMF. By the standards of 1919 AND 2013.

Prenez une légende bretonne, une île isolée creusée de tunnels, un prince germano-polonais, des affaires de famille (mariage sans consentement du père de la mariée, enlèvement de la mariée, puis du fils), deux douzaines de bretons qui meurent dans les 30 premières pages et secouez bien. Il ne reste plus qu'à insérer Arsène Lupin dans le rôle de sauveur/clown et voilà.

Un Arsène Lupin assez noir : on ne rigole pas tous les jours seul sur une ile avec des tueurs invisibles et omnipotents. On meurt

L'île de Sarek en Bretagne est hantée par une légende : trente victimes doivent mourir dont quatre femmes en croix. Véronique d'Hergemont, venue chercher son fils après quatorze ans d'absence, va se trouver prise dans une dangereuse aventure au centre de laquelle se trouve cette légende. Arsène Lupin, heureusement, et un petit chien nommé Tout-Va-Bien, seront là pour affronter la malédiction...

The Big Bad was too stupid for any duel of wits. Morality wise, there didn't seem to be much difference between the protagonist and the antagonist's actions, so I didn't really care who "won".

Three stars because there were a few funny lines to make up for the rest.

Qui se souvient de la série télé? C'était terrifiant! Quatre femmes, quatre femmes en croix... Brrrrr!

Mystery thriller in Brittany in 1917. The story draws on Celtic myths and legends.
