Genre: Historical Mystery/Thriller

England, 1176. King Henry II has imprisoned his rebellious Queen for her failed attempt to overthrow him. But with her conspirators still at large and a failed assassination attempt on his beautiful mistress, Rosamund Clifford, the King must take action to preserve his reign.

Desperate, Henry turns to the only man he trusts: a man whose skills have saved him once before. Sir Benedict Palmer answers the call, mistakenly believing that his family will remain safe while he attends to his King.

As Palmer races to secure his King’s throne, neither man senses the hand of a brilliant schemer, a mystery figure loyal to Henry's traitorous Queen who will stop at nothing to see the King defeated.

The Blood of the Fifth Knight is an intricate medieval murder mystery and worthy sequel to E.M. Powell's acclaimed historical thriller The Fifth Knight.

 My Review: 

I have not read the first book, The Fifth Knight, but I did not feel like I was lost going into this one. Yeah, I probably would have gotten a better grasp on the story, but I think Mrs. Powell set up the details to make it easier on those of us that haven't had the pleasure of reading the first book yet. 

So I'm going to get down to the nitty gritty. This book was great! The writing is beautifully done. I could tell that each word was lovingly planned out and chosen. The characters pop and the plot flowed pretty swiftly. A nice blend of history and fiction is at work here, and it's done so well! 

I really enjoyed this book and plan on picking up the first one so I can have the whole story! I really enjoyed reading this book and can totally recommend it if you like historical fiction, romance, and even mystery!
