Book Review - An Unholy Communion


The newest offering in The Monastery Murders series, An Unholy Communion (Lion Fiction).
Following the ancient tradition, ordinands from the College of the Transfiguration gather at first light on Ascension morning to sing their praises from the top of the college's tallest tower. Not one to miss any liturgy, Felicity finds herself swept up in worship as she listens to the timeless words. But her delight quickly turns to horror when a black-robed body hurtles over the precipice and lands at her feet. Her investigative instincts immediately kick in when she sees a double-headed snake emblem clutched in the lifeless hand. Was this suicide? Or murder?

One of my favorite genre of books is mysteries. An Unholy Communion is a very good mystery that will take you on a strange ride. Felicity is thrown into a strange situation of symbols and death that her and her fiance reeling at times. It is definitely not only a mysterious novel but a thriller as well.  

I liked the author's writing, however, this book was a bit dark for me. I felt uncomfortable in a couple of areas of the book. The book has some scenes regarding the occult and, of course, that was dark. This did add some mystery to the book, however, because you weren't sure if what was happening was spiritual or by man. Be prepared, though, to have some uncomfortable moments due to these parts of the book.

I really liked how Felicity and Antony's faith is so strong and I really liked how they relied on the Lord. I also enjoyed the descriptive writing, especially during the time they are in Wales. I also liked the historical facts and could tell that the author researched this quite well. 

If you like a good mystery, you'll like this book.
