Reviews

SEPULCHRE is a compulsive, fantastical, historical yarn. Mosse's skill lies in the precise nature of her storytelling
OBSERVER
Ghosts, duels, murders, ill-fated love and conspiracy ... addictively readable
DAILY MAIL
[Mosse is] a powerful storyteller with an abundant imagination
DAILY TELEGRAPH
Brilliantly absorbing ... Richly evocative and full of compelling twists and turns
RED
Mosse's gifts for historical fiction are considerable ... Mosse does what good popular historical novelists do best - make the past enticingly otherworldly, while also claiming it as our own
INDEPENDENT
The best of the Brits ... Where Mosse really wins is in the writing department. She's the real role model there
DAILY MIRROR
Her narrative lyricism, beautifully drawn female characters and deft journey from the past to the present day, are also a cut above
