The Enchanter's Forest Summary

The Enchanter's Forest by Alys Clare

In the Great Wealden Forest, power has fallen into the wrong hands. It is Midsummer 1195. A ruthlessly ambitious man has fallen deeply into debt, his desperate situation made even more difficult by the contribution he has had to pay towards King Richard's ransom. To make matters worse the beautiful wife he tricked into marriage has tired of him and her mother hates his guts. But then he makes an extraordinary discovery that dramatically changes his fortunes ...until his lifeless body is found hidden in the undergrowth. Which of his many enemies loathed him enough to resort to murder? Josse d'Acquin, driven by his love for the Abbess Helewise and for the other mysterious woman whom he holds in his heart, knows that he has no choice but to investigate. But the personal cost will be high ...

The Enchanter's Forest Reviews

Praise for the Hawkenlye Series -- : 'This is no murder-by-numbers writer. What seems a fascinating subplot, about a forest poeople who adhere to the old pagan ways, gradually becomes central to the investigation. Clare draws utterly believable characters who have warmth and humanity ... Don't let the fact that this is the sixth in a series put you off. But I bet, like me, you'll be ordering books one to five when you've finished.' -- Derby Evening Telegraph on A DARK NIGHT HIDDEN 'A worthy heir to Ellis Peters, though grittier, materialises' -- Poison in the Pen on FORTUNE LIKE THE MOON 'Proof that a writer of medieval crime fiction can deliver something fresh' -- The Times 'engrossing' -- Kirkus Reviews 'A rich and compelling mystery' -- Tangled Web 'They are actually rather good' -- Publishers Weekly on A DARK NIGHT HIDDEN
