Suddenly the convent crops begin to die, the farm anim [...]

      A friend of mine said this was one of the scariest books she'd ever read, focusing on nuns in a convent, slowly being overtaken by their inner lusts, as they are tempted by a demon. It took me a couple weeks after I had finished reading it to realize just how much it had gotten under my skin, always a sign of something good.

      I'm giving this 2 stars, because its a decent historical fiction. You can see from it, that stuff is well researched. It all happens in 14 st France in the time of the plague, wars and civil riots. Angelique is a daughter of a nobleman who only sees her as a means to further his family power. He want's to marry her to some old, diseased nobleman who has a lot of mistresses and bastards She refuses and he sends her to a convent, to make her more compliant. And there our story begins. She has no v [...]

      I've loved all the Chelsea Q Yarbro books I've read up to this one - it's just ok. Her amazing creations are the best part of her stories - Saint-Germain, Roger, Olivia - in this book the characters just aren't that interesting, and by a third of the way into it, I no longer cared. The good news is I've only read half a dozen or so of the Saint-Germain series, and apparently she's up to volume 27 :-)

      The blurb on the back of this book is a bit of a misnomer as nothing seems to happen for the first 180 pages. It starts out as a historical novel about medieval nuns in a French convent. Very good but none of the carnality and debauchery promised in the description. Finally, the nuns are taken over by a demon and the fun begins as the sisters are slowly driven out of their minds by their evil lusts. It is an enjoyable read but doesn't quite fulfil.

      Gekocht omdat ik de rest van mevrouw Yarbro's werk heb, en dat dit me helemaal onbekend voorkwam. I shouldn't have bothered. Een flutverhaaltje, bordkartonnen personages, het Frans en Italiaans dat er in voorkomt is akelig, het verwordt vaak tot slecht geschreven softporno, enfin: niet aangeraden.

      I don't normally quit reading a book before I finish - but I got sooo bored with this one I just quit. Nothing really happens. Boring.
