This series gets better as it progresses. The plot is somewhat more sophisticated and starts to appeal to older readers more, whilst the language is more adventurous and descriptive. Watching the character's journey and growth to maturity is engaging and there are still the Medieval Miss Marple-style detective skills to admire throughout the novel.
The story continues from the previous book, with Janna now ensconced in an abbey, trying desperately to adapt to the seclusion and strict rules that n

The Janna Chronicles which is being published by Momentum Books in the coming months. This is really exciting because the whole series will be released in ebook format between January and June – roughly a book a month!

The Janna Chronicles:
1.Blood Oath
2.The Stolen Child
3.Unholy Murder
4.Pilgrim of Death
5.Devil’s Brew
6.Day of Judgment

I was given this book for my honest review. My opinions are my own and I was required only to leave my views on the book.

POV's: Singular
Narrative: Third person, subjective.

The Janna Chronicles truly get better with each installment! As Janna's outlook matures, her stories become more detailed and refined. Unholy Murder proves that character progression and development can be the difference between a good series and a great series!

It takes the same form as the previous two novels, in which Jan

I really liked this book, as I did with the others I've read in the series. But, as I said with book 2, it needs to get a move on with Janna finding her father. This one got a bit further than in book 2, but she needs to get on with it.

Very much enjoyed, and I kind of like how long it's taking her to find out about her mother and father. Leaves the backbone of the story, while new plots crop up.

I especially like the scenes between Janna and Hugh. I usually hate romance, but there's something about this one that I like. It's so inappropriate, as Janna constantly reminds us (and rightly so!) and I like how cautious she is. Not once does she 'throw caution to the winds' or anything stupid. In fact (view spoiler)

Another exceptionally well- written book in an exciting new series aimed at middle school and older readers. I am a huge fan of historical fiction, and this book has it all - interesting characters, intrigue, a little romance, a quest. I can't wait to read the next one!

More of the same as Janna solves more mysteries on the way to finding her father and avenging her mother. This story is set in an abbey.

This third book in the series sees Janna taking refuge in Wiltune Abbey, solving a few mysteries and using her healing skills in the process. With the help from one of the nuns, she learns to read, thus bringing her further in her quest to find her father. There is even the hint of his relations when a guest arrives at the abbey. I enjoyed the banter between Janna and Hugh, and further difficulties with her relationship with Godric helps build up the tension within the love triangle.

This is a good book but kind of frustrating how they keep dragging out her finding her father.

I grew up (a long time ago!) in a small bush town in Africa. No TV, iPods, computer games and surfing the internet – you could say I had a very deprived childhood! Not so. Instead, for entertainment I learned to read. Books became my windows to the world: they told me about dragons and fairies and magic. They told me about other countries and other cultures. They told me about myself. And I have n ...more
