Reading this book made me once again realize that organized religion can and did often bring its share of grief loss of life and hardship to the people It certainly should never be the intention of any religion to place itself above another s beliefs but that has unfortunately happened down through the ages Certainly in this book the second in The Burning Chambers series those concepts have been once again been brought to lightMinou and Piet Joubert and their family are Huguenots in France a place that has always considered themselves a Catholic domain Minou and her family are invited to Paris to witness in an attempt to calm the aggression between the Catholics and Huguenots the marriage of the crown princess of the Catholic rulers and the Huguenot King of Navarre It is hoped that this union will bring a lasting peace to the country that has been plagued by warring religious factionsIn Paris the Joubert s young daughter takes it upon herself to go exploring never thinking that she would be caught up in the St Bartholomew s massacre where white crosses painted on door bring safety to those hidden inside while other homes are broken into and their occupants seized murdered and wantonly thrown aside This killing spared no one children women the elderly were slaughtered because they were considered not to be the right religionThe Joubert s have always supported people s right to believe even though Piet has definite sympathies for the Calvinist cause His feelings and his hidden mysterious background come to the attention of a French cardinal and the peaceful life once loved by the Joubert s is about to turn to violence death and destruction Vidal du Plessis a cardinal is obsessed with the collection of relics He has profited from them even knowing that many of them are false He will let no one stop him from his mission and he is in some way connected to Piet He is dangerous he is ruthless and he is a father to Volusien of course never acknowledging his paternity in public For these characters it is a race to stay alive and their journey carries them from France to Holland to Chartres never really acuiring that sense of peace they thought they had previously Add to their sense of constant fear their daughter is missing and as they are forced to leave Paris they leave with only the hope that she is alive in the midst of a massacreTold with the background of religious strife indifference greed and the overwhelming need to find peace in one s life this is a story of struggles that are cruel barbarous and merciless I recommend this book which can be a standalone story to all who love a well written and developed book that opens one s eyes to the cruelty and heartless barbarity that was said to be done in the name of GodThank you to Kate Mosse Minotaur Books and Edelweiss for an advanced copy of this book due out in May of this year
