The Dante Chamber The Dante Club #2

Er and further into the mystery But when the true inspiration behind the gruesome murders is finally revealed Christina realizes that the perpetrator has even bigger and horrific plans than she had initially thoughtA dazzling tale of intrigue from the writer Library Journal calls the reigning king of popular literary historical thrillers The Dante Chamber is a riveting adventure across London and through Dante Expertly blending fact and fiction Pearl gives us a historical mystery like no other captivating and enthralling until the last page.. I don t really have a lot to say about this book as much as I love the subject matter Dante Holmes Browning Tennyson It just didn t click with me The beginning sets up a nice plot with a murder found to be based on the works of Dante but then it just sort of falters there is too much interpretations of Dante s work and less focus on the actual plot which honestly kept throwing me off The ending is basically where the action is and there s not much of it I found it interesting and well researched but overly wordy and the story too broken up with interpretations of Dante s works It just wasn t for meI received an advanced copy from the publisher All thoughts and opinions are my own
