The Pindar DiamondThe Pindar Diamond by Katie Hickman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I won this book off Goodreads First-reads and I was unaware it is the sequel to a book, however, I think it helped provide a bit more punch for the mystery since I had no background information. Placed at the beginning of the 15th Century, the book begins immediately with a mysterious woman and her baby found half drowned in some obscure Italian Village. I was immediately engrossed, and as more characters were introduced, so was the intrigue. This book was well written, with a undeniably inventive plot, however, reader beware: there is language as well as disappointing crudity and bedroom scenes which I felt took away from the overall quality of the book rather than adding to.
