Eunuch Escapes Unscathed
Previous Entry :: Next Entry

Read/Post Comments (7)

Newsflash: Kirkus Reviews weighs in. Eunuch escapes unscathed. Authors breath sighs of relief.

A lengthy synopsis (available at B&N) precedes the summation:

A busy historical mystery with an engagingly wry tone. Many detours, but getting there is most of the fun.

I'm amazed!

While I'm at it, we also had kind words from David Pitt at Booklist:

This is the sixth John the Eunuch novel, and the series shows no signs of slowing down. As usual the authors write precisely and gracefully, maintaining a perfect balance between historical atmosphere and old-fashioned mystery. The setting, sixth-century Byzantium, is still fresh, still full of wonders and weirdness. And, like Lindsey Davis' Falco series, there's an agreeable mixture of drama and comedy. Fans of the series will be overjoyed.

I don't know whether reviews sell books or not but good ones certainly provide much needed encouragement.
