Monk's Hood  - Ellis Peters

The Brother Cadfael series slowly becomes my favorite comfort read series. It´s so cozy and heartwarming and I love Brother Cadfael as a character. He is a genuinely good person and and he loves to help people when they are in dire need of help. And the fact that he is Welsh makes him even more sympathetic. Don´t ask me why that is, it just adds a lot to his character.


I have to say, though, that Monk´s-hood, the third book in the series, has been my least favorite so far. The mystery hasn´t been the most interesting one and the story dragged a bit in the middle of the novel. And the people Cadfael meets in this novel were bland and this book didn’t leave me with a feeling of perfect content upon finishing it.


Monk´s-Hood isn´t by any means a bad book and as with the other Cadfael books it gave me that cozy feeling, but it´s definitely not the best book in the series.


Monk´s-hood is part of a finished (dead) series.
