Luis de Santángel chancellor to the court and longtime friend of the lusty King Ferdinand has had enough of the Spanish Inuisition As the power of Inuisitor General Tomás de Toruemada grows so does the brutality of the Spanish church and the suspicion and paranoia it inspires When a dear friend’s demise brings the violence close to home S. My thoughtsWowthat's what I thinkWOW Never in a million years would I say that historical fiction about the New Inuisition during the Medieval times would be intriguing but I have to say that Kaplan wrote a book that had me turning the pages late into the night and wanting to get up at the crack of dawn to start reading again The author's writing is so vivid and intense that I felt as if I was walking along side the characters I loved every aspect of this story but most of all I loved being immersed in a time of history that I had absolutely no knowledge about Kaplan has done his research and it shows in his debut novel For those that are looking for historical fiction that will keep you captivated and make you want to Google words places and eventsthen this is a book for youRecommend A resounding YES I'm still in awe that this is Kaplan's first novel He has a great future ahead of him and I so can't wait to get my hands on his next novel This is one of the best historical fiction books that I've read in the past couple of years Do yourself a favorread this oneRating 1010
