*** Speaking from Among the Bones by Alan Bradley


I’m catching up on my Flavia de Luce with¬†Speaking from Among the Bones, a very dark ¬†tale of bodies stashed in poor Saint Tancred’s grave, with a specially gruesome discovery mechanism by Flavia — dramatic, yes, but a little hard to believe for an eleven-year old. The relationships with the adults around her and how they honor or not her deductive capabilities are well captured — and there’s a monumental cliffhanger at the very end. When will volume 6 be released?
