A Trail of Ink The Third Chronicle of Hugh de Singleton, SurgeonA Trail of Ink The Third Chronicle of Hugh de Singleton, Surgeon by Melvin R. Starr

My rating: 4 of 5 stars




Although I haven't read the first two in the series yet I was able to follow the story just fine.

The author Mel Starr has a remarkable gift for language. This story takes place in 14th century Oxford and is written in a way that really makes you feel as though you're there.

The characters (especially Hugh, Kate, Master John, and Arthur) are well written. I enjoyed the relationship development between Hugh and Kate.

Overall this book was well written and enjoyable to read.
