The Dark Monk and The Hangman’s Daughter | Book Review

Simply Shawn N Jenn Disclosure

I have been reading the Dark Monk and The Hangman’s Daughter.  Written by Oliver Potzch, who was born in 1070 and worked as a script-writing for Bavarian television.  Oliver does a phenomenal job making you want more!  He is a very talented writing, and I enjoyed reading this books.

The Dark Monk is a fabulous books.  The Dark Monk is set in a village in Bavarian Alps.  Following a tale of riddles, Jakob is my favorite character also with his daughter Magdalena.  This book is one that will keep you grabbing the edge of your seat, waiting for more.  I seriously could not wait to turn the page, I couldn’t read fast enough.  My oldest daughter and I agreed over who’s turn it was to read it on the Kindle Fire, of course Mom win’s but it’s very rare that we argue over the same book.

I am now working on reading another amazing book written by Oliver Potzch called, The Hangman’s Daughter.  I am almost to the end of the book, it took everything in me to set the book down long enough to write this review.

The Hangman’s Daughter is a story of a dying boy who is pulled out of the river.  He has a mark of crudely tattooed on his shoulder.  In this book Jakob Kuisl is asked to check out if there is witchcraft in play.  I can hardly wait to finish this book, only a few pages left!  I can tell you it’s amazing and an awesome read.  If you like fast-paced historical thrillers, this is an amazing choice!

I have very much enjoyed reading both of these wonderful books.

    These books seem like they are right up my alley 🙂

  3. I definitely want to real these! After the 50 Shades or Grey Trilogy and The Hunger Games, I read the Pillars of the Earth and am currently reading World Without End by Ken Follett, you miight like those as well, as they are in the same time period as these, and when I was reading The Hunger Games, I had the same fight with my son, we DESPERATELY need another reader!
    Isn’t that what Swagbucks are for?

  4. These both sound like very interesting books. I especially love the fact that these are both period stories. Maybe it’s me, but I’m a sucker for the days of yore.

  5. always looking for a new book to try & love. thanks!!! ( :
