Summary

You heard it here first: The unabridged edition of Sepulchre is only available as a download. Set against the tumultuous backdrop of southern France, Sepulchre is the stunning new novel of obsession and revenge from the number-one best-selling author of Labyrinth.
October 1891: A young girl, Léonie Verniern, and her brother, Anatole, abandon the gas-lit streets of Paris for the sanctuary of the Domaine de la Cade, some miles south of the medieval city of Carcassone. But, in the ancient woods that surround the isolated country house, Léonie stumbles across a ruined Visigoth sepulchre - and a timeless mystery whose traces are written in blood. As she peels back the layers of the past, she uncovers the existence of a unique deck of tarot cards that are rumoured to hold the power of life and death.
October 2007: Researching a biography of the composer Claude Debussy in the apparent tranquillity of the Pyrenean foothills, Meredith Marin also seeks the key to her own complex legacy. Armed with a haunting piece of piano music and a sepia photograph, she soon becomes immersed in the story of a tragic love, a missing girl, an unquiet soul, and the strange events of one cataclysmic night more than a century ago.
As the Feast of All Saints approaches - when the veil between life and death is at its thinnest - Meredith is drawn inexorably to a secluded forest glade where the secrets of the past are far from buried.

A disappointment after the first book

The story was quite good although I did feel some of the characters were stereotypical of this type of story. However I could have lived with this but for the narrator - I also found her intonation frustrating and could only listen for a short time. As someone who likes the gendre of audio books this was again frustrating. A real let down after the first book

Wince Making

Intriguing story spoiled by the narration. The narrators voice did not in my opinion suit the tale at all indeed I found her voice made me wince, 20hrs suffering. Such a shame.

Amazingly Brilliant

I must say I was a bit skeptical about listening to this book because of all the reviews that turned me off. They said that Mosse's Labrynth was much better and this one was not all there. I did enjoy her first book and with that assurance (you can't write a bad book after a good one) I did start listening. I must agree that the book is a bit slow in the beginning, but that's only because it's such a long book. Otherwise the book is amazing. It is very sad and moving too, the closure is not one that I would have wanted. Not your usual happily ever after but still.... The narrator also does the naration very well with all the French names and places.

I would recommend this book to someone who likes long but a bit slow moving and very emotional books.

Sepulchre

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend all of Kate Mosse's books to anyone who like an original and brilliant novel.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Sepulchre?

One was near the end, where Lenore is in the Sepulchre.

Which scene was your favorite?

There are many, the gunfight and aftermath.

Who was the most memorable character of Sepulchre and why?

Lenore, in the 1890s Her story was slightly the best.

Any additional comments?

I rarely comment or give reviews, as they can be so subjective, but I love the way all her books tie in, Labrynth being the first of the series, neatly ties in with Sepulchre and Citadel, and even Citadel ties in with the Winter Ghosts.
I was sorry to have finished reading the books, I have purchased the actual books, and I got the Audio books to put a different slant on what I had read.
Sepulchre had me get my Tarot cards out for another look, and buy some apps.
I am looking forward to her next book.
