This week I am waiting on:
Prisoner of the Inquisition by Theresa Breslin
Released 1st April 2010 UK, Doubleday Children's Books
I am a huge Theresa Breslin fan. She has written two of my favourite books: The Medici Seal and the Nostradamus Prophecy. Both were books that I just could not put down. I have been waiting and waiting to find out about Theresa's new book and then the lovely Lauren @ Random House tweeted me a link.
Here is the summary from Amazon:If you are a fan of historical fiction, you really should read her books. They're awesome!
Zarita is used to basking in the pampered lifestyle being the only daughter of the town magistrate affords; she is free to roam the town as she likes, consort with the son of a nobleman and spend her days studying the arts. Saulo's family have fallen on hard times, and when his father is hanged for an assault on Zarita he did not commit and Saulo is hauled off to be a slave at sea, Saulo swears revenge. But when Zarita's mother dies in childbirth, and the formidable and frightening Inquisition arrives in the area, a curtain of suspicion and brutality comes down on her old life for good. Saulo may believe that Zarita is his sworn enemy, but in a time when the whole of Spain is in turmoil, are him and Zarita each other's only hope of survival?
