Sepulchre By Kate Mosse: A Review
Author, Kate Mosse introduces herself, tells a bit about writing this novel, and then reads the entire prologue! Leave the lights on...
More than a century later, Meredith Martin, an American graduate student, arrives in France to study the life of Claude Debussy, the nineteenth century French composer. In Rennes-les-Bains, Meredith checks into a grand old hotel—the Domain de la Cade. Something about the hotel feels eerily familiar, and strange dreams and visions begin to haunt Meredith’s waking hours. A chance encounter leads her to a pack of tarot cards painted by Léonie Vernier, which may hold the key to this twenty-first century American’s fate . . . just as they did to the fate of Léonie Vernier more than a century earlier.

MY THOUGHTS ON SEPULCHRE
Sepulchre by Kate Mosse is the second in a grail trilogy. I read Sepulchre first not on purpose but because I found it in a used bookstore and have always meant to read this trilogy but somehow never found the time! I don't recommend reading books out of sequence but it just happened this way. That being said, I highly recommend Sepulchre for anyone who is 'Interested' in reading fictionalized accounts of historical occurrences, historical figures, mixed with some of my favorite myths and legends thrown in!
This is NOT THE DAVINCI CODE REDONE so keep an open mind and an open heart and enjoy this well written, plot driven, suspenseful novel! Did I mention ancient tarot cards are involved and there's romance between two characters in the 2007 storyline! Also, Claude Debussy's music is featured as well! It's a wonderful novel and will keep you wanting to know more!
IF you watched the video and that didn't get you, well, I don't know what will? Read It!
