I would have given this book three stars were it not for the very silly scene in which Jacquetta Woodville holds a party for the English nobility in France in which she openly flaunts her witchcraft. Leaving aside the fact that there's no proof that Jacquetta was a witch, a noble lady would hardly be open about being a witch just a short time after Joan of Arc had been burned at the stake on charges of witchcraft.

A very good read. Starting with the early life of Cecily and Richard, following to the time of their departure for Ireland. Can't wait to get the rest of the series.
