As absorbing and fascinating as Mosse’s first novel Labyrinth, Sepulchre is rich in history, mystery, revenge and obsession. Again this is a time split novel following the story of two women separated by over a century but linked by a mysterious discovery. A really great read, thoroughly engrossing.

Sepulchre by Kate Mosse
1891. Seventeen-year-old Léonie Vernier and her brother abandon Paris for the sanctuary of their aunt's isolated country house near Carcassonne, the Domaine de la Cade. But in the nearby woods, Léonie stumbles across a ruined sepulchre - and a timeless mystery whose traces are written in blood.
2007. Meredith Martin arrives at the Domaine de la Cade as part of her research for a biography she's writing. But Meredith is also seeking the key to her own complex legacy and soon becomes immersed in the story of a tragic love, a missing girl, a unique deck of tarot cards, an unquiet soul and the strange events of one cataclysmic night more than a century ago...
'The Labyrinth author is back with another brilliantly absorbing story ... 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.'
Emma Hagestadt, INDEPENDENT
'Sepulchre is a compulsive, fantastical, historical yarn. Mosse's skill lies in the precise nature of her storytelling.' THE OBSERVER
