If you love historical fiction, this book is for you.

G Willow Wilson weaves a rich tapestry of storytelling at a period of time I have not read up on very much. I am not too familiar with the Spanish Inquisition so I was really happy to have a book to spark my interest in learning more.

I adored Fatima; her character was so well written and rich. I love concubine stories that give insight on what it may have been like at the time. I also loved her relationship with Hassan, the mapmaker.

It was all in all a wonderful read, full of love and adventure. I felt like I was there with them and not a lot of books can make me feel like that. I have already talked up this book with friends and will continue to do so.
