Arinius is a young monk, who is safe-guarding what he feels is “sacred words”. T he complex history of the Languedoc has proved fertile territory for Kate Mosse in her recent trilogy of adventure novels, beginning with the phenomenally successful Labyrinth inshortly to be a mini-series, and now katf its conclusion in Citadel. There was simply one dull torrent of conversation followed by another of an almost identical nature.
I’ve not list Even though I originally read this book some years ago I still remember thoroughly enjoying this final book in the Labyrinth trilogy. Arininus is desperately trying to find a hiding place for the forbidden ‘Codex’, which is said to have the power to raise cihadel ‘sleeping army of ghosts’.

We were not well matched to each other, and after I turned the last page, we parted amicably without so much as exchanging numbers. Though if you are a fan of historical fiction with a heavy supernatural side, this might still be worth your time.
Aurelius’ journey was not particularly exciting and the hokum about the ghost army was particularly unconvincing. But I suppose reader beware.
But smuggling refugees over the mountains into neutral territory and sabotaging their Nazi occupiers is only part of their mission. As per my review policy updated Dec. Drawing the characters from the first two books in the trilogy together. Unfortunately, it was probably pages too 3.
It’s a small point but it was jarringly emotional, a different style to the rest of the book. I found this book very taxing. The police were to protect, although many of them were involved with the Nazi’s, who to trust was a significant problem.

Nov 01, Luna Ofthenight rated it really liked it. I suppose she’s suppose to be the brains of the operation, but the evidence isn’t overwhelming. However, in her afterword, what Mosse actually reveals is that she has made everything up. The storyline at least presents its share of obstacles for its characters.
Review: Citadel by Kate Mosse | Diary of an Eccentric
Not to be confused with Kate Moss. I love hearing what you have to say, and I try to respond to all comments here. I’ve read through non-fiction books, France, is not open and free with all their paperwork on those who were involved in the Resistance, nor kaet French citizens who were involved with the Nazi’s.
