    • 3.5* rounded up because I want to see more from this series.Incendium is a historical spy fiction set during the reign of Elisabeth I. Christopher Radcliff, a former law professor is employed by Earl of Leicester, a close adviser to the Queen, as chief intelligencer. His job is to keep the Earl informed regarding potentials plots against the Crown. Dr. Radcliff engages the help of a series of interesting agents who listen around and report if they hear any interesting whispers. The novel begins [...]


    • The guards came that night. Christopher was roused and told to dress. Where am I to be taken?" he asked, rubbing the sleep from his eyes. "The tower," replied one of the guards. "The Earl of Leicester has commanded it." Christopher swore. Had the earl changed his mind again? They travelled by barge to the Tower stairs. Christopher huddled into his cloak against the night cold. To their left, glimmers of light from watchmen's lanterns flickered in the blackness; to their right the marshes and mea [...]


    • I have said it before, but historical mysteries really fit me. They have to work so hard to find anything, in a good way.In this one Radcliffe, a lawyer works for the Earl of Leicester. And there is a plot afoot. Does someone want to kill the queen? Who can be trusted? Tensions between Catholics and the rest are rising. France is making moves, Spain is making moves. And Radcliffe is meant to try to figure out what is going on, and then there is the word, Incendium. Who was behind it. Oh I could [...]


    • Such a fantastic start to A.D. Swanston's new series! Incendium focuses on the very real danger Elizabeth I faced personally in the wake of France's St Bartholomew's Eve massacre. A brilliant historical thriller.


    • This is an excellent story of intrigue and espionage in Elizabethan England. The characters are well drawn and the background, London in the late sixteenth century, is both plausible and interesting. The historical context, the enmity between Catholic France and Spain, on the one hand, and Protestant England, on the other, is recounted almost effortlessly without recourse to long, boring passages. I'd recommended to anyone with an interest in historical fiction.


    • Terrible. I was so looking forward to reading it, and it disappointed me to no end. The historical background is sound, but nothing is happening. I'm 10%, and they're still at the office the main character entered on the first page. There is telling, and telling and telling, no kind of action to help us understand who these people are, and what their personalities are like. I hoped for more than this - some emotion, some suspense, maybe some less known historical details, but none of those were [...]


    • Murder, mystery and spies in Elizabethan England, the main players of the time such as the Earl of Leicester and Sir Francis Walsingham all have major parts in this book. The protagonist of the book is a lawyer Christopher Radcliff, who has his own group of intelligences all ready to spy for him for money and England. A well wrote and thought out book on the lines of C J Sandom and a really easy, interesting read.


    • Original Review HereAs soon as I saw Incendium by A.D. Swanston, I wanted it! The cover is beautiful! Never mind `don’t-judge-a-book-by-its-cover` – I wanted this book!It did not let me down.I haven’t read anything set in this era since I was a child and reading The Lady Grace Mysteries. It was refreshing to immerse myself in a different time and Swanston made this time accessible – I picked up on the way of life pretty much straight away!The plot involves mystery, murder and a man tryin [...]


    • I am notoriously picky when it comes to historical fiction. One of the problems of having studied history is that I both love reading historical fiction and yet also find it incredibly easy to be thrown out of enjoying the story just because of a simple inaccuracy. This is even more applicable when it comes to anything to do with Elizabethan England, aka one of my main specialisms. So A.D.Swanston had a series of significant obstacles to get over for me to even stand a chance of enjoying this bo [...]


    • Interesting plot set in Elizabethan Times. I enjoyed the story line. The mix of characters was excellent. I found the story line involving and it took sufficient twists to keep my interest. Good read.


    • A great readWell written and engaging characters, a new twist on the much written about periodI Will read the other books by this author.
