Wishlist Wednesday: The Falcons of Fire and Ice, Karen Maitland

Wishlist Wednesday is a weeklies hosted by Pen to Paper. As I have enough wishes when it comes to books I decided to join this weekly and tell you about them. I am obviously curious about the books on your wishlist too so feel free to leave a message.

The Falcons of Fire and Ice Karen Maitland cover
1564, Lisbon. The Inquisition displays its power and ruthlessly spreads fear. Heretics are tortured and burned. Any who oppose the Church's will realize that silence is preferable to a slow and agonizing death.
Isabela, daughter of the Falconer at the Royal Court, is about to be caught in the Church's terrifying schemes. The slaughter of two of the King's precious white falcons sees her father arrested and imprisoned. As punishment, he and his family will be killed unless the birds are replaced.
Isabela, young and headstrong, decides that only she can save her father. These birds are impossibly rare, and she will have to travel far and into strange lands to find them to clear her father's name. It is a journey that will take her into a dark and dangerous world filled with menacing people driven by fearful beliefs.
And, unfortunately for Isabela, the Church has sent a companion to ensure she never returns ...

Helllooooooo pretty cover. I think I like you. And the synopsis is pretty interesting too. Falconer, Royal Court, schemes.... yes this is a book for me for sure. And just look at that pretty cover.

First impression : gorgeous cover and I am nearly hooked. First words "Lisbon 1564" and I know I will have to read this one. I hope you'll get to read it soon. From the look of it, this will be moving to the very top of my wishlist too.

Fascinating topic! The two other novels I've read set during the Inquisition were intense but so worthwhile. I'll have to check this one out as well!
