3.5*

I had forgotten how much I enjoy these Fools' Guild mysteries! This second one doesn't have a Shakespearean background as do some of the others (such as the first one, Thirteenth Night, which uses the play Twelfth Night as a background), and I missed the humor that provided. However, the thirteenth century Constantinople setting was excellent.

Smart, learned, with nods to stagecraft and swimming in history. I like it a lot.

3.8, the end was stronger than the middle.

I appreciate the historian outlook that rumbles along under the narrative. From the afterword:

"...another medievalist scholar writes of a conference in the 1980s where the 2 camps divided so bitterly that they nearly came to blows.

I, for one, would gladly have paid to see this last. In my fantasy, the Venetianists and the Byzantinists are at opposite ends of a large field. Each side is given a disassembled mangonel, operating instructions in the appropriate 13th c. manuscript, and a pile of stones. The last historic standing gets to write the definitive work."… (plus d'informations)
