An Unholy Communion Book Review

An Unholy Communion

An Unholy Communion by Donna Fletcher Crow is a murder mystery that is truly unique.

The third installment in the best-selling Monastery Murders series Following the ancient tradition, ordinands from the College of the Transfiguration gather at first light on Ascension morning to sing their praises from the top of the college's tallest tower. Not one to miss any liturgy, Felicity finds herself swept up in worship as she listens to the timeless words.

But her delight quickly turns to horror when a black-robed body hurtles over the precipice and lands at her feet. Her investigative instincts immediately kick in when she sees a double-headed snake emblem clutched in the lifeless hand. Was this suicide? Or murder?

This time, though, Felicity will leave the investigating to someone else. She and her fiance, Antony, are off to lead a youth pilgrimage through Wales. Yet even in this remote, mystical land, lurking figures follow Felicity and Antony, and Felicity finds herself haunted by the writhing snakes. Then an ancient holy well reveals another body . . .

Ingeniously plotted by a master of contemporary suspense, An Unholy Communion weaves Great Britain's holy places and history with an intricate mystery that will keep readers guessing to the very end. (Goodreads)

This is the first book in the series that I have read. I have never read a book that had this type of setting or so much detail about the monastery. It was a little confusing at times, but thrilling and interesting to read! This book digs deep into the darkness of demons and cults, and proves that Christ is the only One to run to. A lot of research went into this book and I think I could read it again and pick up more details that I could have missed. Very impressive read, it can be read alone, but I think I would like to read the previous two books in this series.

I don't recommend to those who don't like reading about cults and dark backgrounds.
