Labyrinth by Kate Mosse

Orion Fiction

Mark Haddon

'An action packed adventure of modern conspiracy and medieval passion...a Grail gripper [and] elegantly written timeslip.'

Independent

This is a thoroughly enjoyable read; do not be daunted by the 700 pages. It's a very fast moving 'page-turner'.

The two stories of Alice and Alais run alongside each other, however they live in two very different worlds. I learnt a lot about life in 13th century France which I had not previously known. People had tough lives and had to endure much religious persecution. Many know of the Spanish Inquisition but I feel less is known of this equally brutal time in what is now France.

As in Dan Brown's 'The Da Vinci Code', the topic of the Holy Grail is investigated and Kate Mosse has her own slant on the possible meaning and where-abouts of the Grail.

This is a great adventure story with a clever twist at the end I do recommend this book.
