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.

Tria Ah, covers. That's a publisher issue. They're the ones who choose what goes on the cover. The author certainly had no say in any editions published in the last 20 years, as she died in 1995.
