RaveFreshFictionThe Saint of Wolves and Butchers is cleverly paced. The story starts slowly, which does not mean sluggish, then when everything is set in place, barrels toward the ending. The pace was frenzied, I could hardly keep up. I must also mention the absolutely flawless editing! I was held entirely captive throughout the whole book because Mr. Grecian understands timing like few authors: I couldn\'t wait to read what had happened in the past, what would happen next, and at some point who were the villains. The atmosphere crackles with tension, and even when it seems nothing is concretely happening, the wheels are set in motion and a feeling of impending doom descends, then a flurry of startling plot twists careen towards a stunning conclusion.
RaveFresh FictionAlthough I think that, at times, some details concerning minor players were overabundant, the whole thing was riveting, and it shed some light on the sometimes unbearable challenges the Royal Family faces ... The Duchess is exceptionally well written ... it is a book I would highly recommend to people in need of inspiration when facing adversity, or even merely for historical reasons; seldom do we really read about how the other half lives, let alone the Monarchy.
