I have been impatiently waiting for this book to come out! I was not disappointed! This final book in the Lords of Avalon series is perfect. The series follows a group of friends who formed the Avalon Society as a way to study treasures from the past. They are now searching for Holy Relics stolen or hidden during the Dissolution and are in a race against a group of brown coated men to get to the treasures first.
Ms. Richards did a fantastic job of researching plots, locations and historical events to come up with this utterly fantastic series! The twists and turns in the plot kept me reading non-stop and on the edge of my seat, especially in this last book! I almost wished the few love scenes weren’t there so I could find out everything faster! I absolutely loved every member of the Avalon Society and cannot wait to continue reading their stories in the upcoming series as they search for the Shroud of Christ.
