Inhaltsangabe:

Thirteenth-century Bohemia is a dangerous place for a girl, especially one as odd as Mouse, born with unnatural senses and an uncanny intellect. Some call her a witch. Others call her an angel. Even Mouse doesn't know who--or what--she is. But she means to find out.

When young King Ottakar shows up at the Abbey wounded by a traitor's arrow, Mouse breaks church law to save him and then agrees to accompany him back to Prague as his personal healer. Caught in the undertow of court politics at the castle, Ottakar and Mouse find themselves drawn to each other as they work to uncover the threat against him and to unravel the mystery of her past. But when Mouse's unusual gifts give rise to a violence and strength that surprise everyone--especially herself--she is forced to ask herself: Will she be prepared for the future that awaits her?

A heart-thumping, highly original tale in the vein of Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian, Bohemian Gospel heralds the arrival of a fresh new voice for historical fiction.

Rezension: Dana Chamblee Carpenter's Bohemian Gospel is one of the best novels I've read in years. Wonderful writing, great characters, a fantastic story everything a reader of historical fiction could want. --Philip Freeman, author of Saint Brigid's Bones"

Bohemian Gospel is a fast-moving, seductive read. A fascinating mix of dark fantasy and rich historical detail, swirling around Mouse, a fiercely independent, brave young woman who struggles with a gift that is both a blessing and a curse. --Linda Lafferty, author of The Bloodletter s Daughter"

A thoroughly enjoyable read gripping and exciting with a wonderful and intriguing central character in the enigmatic Mouse and a sting-in-the-tail ending that is a genuine surprise. We will be hearing much more from Dana Chamblee Carpenter in the future.--Diana Bretherick, author of City of Devils"

Thisentrancing and suspenseful story pulls you in as if you were reading a Grimm's fairy tale but with a strong, complex yet vulnerable woman at its core. A page-turner of eerie shivers and supernatural questions.--Nancy Bilyeau, author of The Crown"

A deliciously creepy debut. Carpenter s vivid imagination creates a well-rounded, sympathetic heroine and an intricate world full of terrifying details. The volatility of the evil forces threatening Mouse s world makes for an unpredictable journey."

The most badass heroine I ve encountered in a long time. One part historical thriller, one part adventure fantasy, and all parts girl power.--Nina Sankovitch, author of 'Tolstoy and the Purple Chair'"

In those parts of the tale in which Mouse must counter threats, the novel is a compulsive read, full of historical and supernatural (yet historically-founded) detail.

Bohemian Gospel isn't afraid to leave readers with unanswered questions, though, in the best possible way. Hot dang, that is how you write a freaking epilogue. I refuse to disclose any spoilers, but trust me you won't see the ending coming. I can only sit tight and wait for a sequel. --Ellen Findley"
