APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Set against the backdrop of a medieval England torn by civil war, Blood Oath follows a 17-year-old Saxon serf named Janna as she seeks to avenge her mother’s death. The first book in this historical mystery series by Australian author Felicity Pulman paints a vivid picture of life in the Middle Ages with descriptions of feudal customs and medicinal leechcraft. We love Pulman’s plucky and sharp-tongued heroine, an herbal healer who rubs elbows with nobles and tenaciously investigates crime.
