If I didn't know after reading the first Brother Cadfael, A Morbid Taste for Bones, that I wanted to read ALL of the Brother Cadfael books, I definitely know it now after reading book two! Brother Cadfael is such a smart, interesting, capable, and overall cool character! He is exactly what I look for in a mystery protagonist. And, as in book one, I loved the cast of characters surrounding Brother Cadfael as well.

Ellis Peters does a wonderful job of building the medieval world her characters live in without slowing down the story with too many details. The mystery itself was good, although the solution wasn't a huge surprise. Mostly I just enjoyed spending time with these characters. I look forward to reading book three, Monk's Hood, sometime in the near future!

One thing that did bug me a little is that the cover picture of the edition I read doesn't match the details in the story. But overall that is a minor thing and doesn't keep me from wanting to read more in the series.
