Cadfael Update and Mini-Review
I read two more of the Brother Cadfael medieval mystery books on my trip this past weekend and have updated my list accordingly. The books were The Raven in the Foregate and The Rose Rent (the links will take you to Amazon). Both were engaging, though I thought the Rose Rent plotline was the most implausible of all the Cadfael books I've read so far. And while I'm still enjoying the books, I'm starting to see the same plot points and variations-on-a-theme characters, which is starting to get a bit old. Brother Cadfael, though, is still a comfortable character to be around, which makes this series worth reading.
