I thought it was about time I tried this series as it's been on my to be read for over a year.
I am a big fan of medieval mysteries and this is well on it's way to being a favorite just from the first book.

When the Celtic and Roman Church followers gather in Whitby to try and iron out their differences, the tension is palatable. When Abbess Etain is found murdered before she can speak for the Celtic church the tensions rise to an almost unbearable level and King Oswy turns to Irish lawyer Sister Fidelma and Saxon Brother Eadulf to find the murderer before the gathering dissolves into a war.

The feisty Sister Fidelma is no doubt the best part of this story for me. The church politics, ocean side castle setting and Brother Eadulf were just icing on the cake for this ancient Irish murder mystery.
