    "Being the first in a series of many books, A Morbid Taste for Bones is a 12th-century mystery novel of the historical fiction genre. It features the memorable character Brother Cadfael, a monk turned detective. While I didn't read the entire series, I did enjoy the storyline of this novel. Interesting to me, the books inspired a PBS series featuring Brother Cadfael."

    "Mistress of the Art of Death was way better than i expected it to be. It was actually recommended to me by a friend and that said friend and i do not share the same taste in books. Needless to say it was a pleasant surprise."
