*BLOG TOUR* The Serpent’s Mark – S.W. Perry ★★★★★

Blurb; Treason sleeps for no man…

London, 1591. Nicholas Shelby, physician and reluctant spy, returns to his old haunts on London’s lawless Bankside. But, when the queen’s spymaster Robert Cecil asks him to investigate the dubious practices of a mysterious doctor from Switzerland, Nicholas is soon embroiled in a conspiracy that threatens not just the life of an innocent young patient, but the overthrow of Queen Elizabeth herself.

With fellow healer and mistress of the Jackdaw tavern, Bianca Merton, again at his side, Nicholas is drawn into a dangerous world of zealots, charlatans and fanatics. As their own lives become increasingly at risk, they find themselves confronting the greatest treason of all: the spectre of a bloody war between the faiths…

My Review; I am honoured to be kicking this blog tour off! I have been so looking forward to reading this one after loving book one (The Angel’s Mark). These are best read in order as this book does relate back to book one in detail at parts throughout.

Yet again S.W. Perry has given us anothor belter and page turner of a book to read. Brilliant! I expected no less. The Serpent’s Mark brings us back to some familiar characters and places from book one. I felt so sorry for Tanners character! I still love Bianca’s and Nicholas’s characters, they’re the perfect duo. Towards the end it becomes a race against time… Gripping. Suspense filled.

I awarded a well deserved five stars. Highly recommend. Brilliantly written. I cannot wait to see what comes next! Exciting.
