I am so excited that my new publisher, Severn House, has chosen A Conspiracy of Wolves, the 11th Owen Archer, as their Editor’s Pick for April in the UK! They have some wonderful things to say about it, too.
“With A CONSPIRACY OF WOLVES, Severn House is delighted to welcome to the list the highly-acclaimed historical mystery writer Candace Robb who, after a 10-year gap, has chosen to return to the bestselling medieval mystery series that made her name….
“Wonderfully atmospheric and impeccably researched, A CONSPIRACY OF WOLVES reintroduces readers to Robb’s eclectic cast of much-loved characters, including the enigmatic healer Magda, the fastidious Brother Michaelo, and not least the upright, fairminded Owen Archer himself, as he doggedly pursues the truth behind the shocking deaths of Bartolf and Hoban Swann. Real historical figures mingle seamlessly with fictitious: I particularly liked Robb’s portrayal of the garrulous, gossipy Geoffrey Chaucer, who makes for a brilliantly contrasting sidekick to the more sober, taciturn Owen.”

Congratulations Candace!!! Hard to believe it’s been ten years. I think I’m going to have to go to Amazon UK; August is too far away, or is it too long away? It’s a real shame we no longer have any independent bookstores in the Atlanta area that would draw you on a tour.
