    1. In de staatsburger vertelt Sarah Smith een fascinerend en stijlvol verhaal van liefde, chantage, spionage, waanzin en hekserij - in een schitterende combinatie van misdaad en literatuur. In Frans-Vlaanderen troont op een heuvel het kasteel Montfort van graaf André du Monde, eigenaar van een Parijs griezeltheater. Om zijn schaarse middelen aan te vullen, trouwt hij een jonge erfgename. Sabine is puur, mooi en rijk, perfect om de hoofdrol te spelen in Andrés eerste film - maar de excentrieke gra [...]


    2. The final book in her trilogy centering on the lives and melodramatic tribulations of Count von Reisden, his blind pianist wife, Perdita, his uncle Gilbert and assorted crazies. This book is set in French Flanders in 1911 and portrays a now vanished pre-WWI land of political intrigue, a chateau called Monfort which has a "secret" ("the secret of Montfort"n't you just love it?), a coven of witches, a theater centered on the macabre, and much much more. It is over the top sometimes but still fun. [...]


    3. I wasn't aware that the author had written a third book in this series, so it was a nice surprise to find this book. The plot was a little confusing, though, and I am still troubled by the relationship between the main characters. I can see that there is still a lot the author could do with these characters, and hope to see future installments.


    4. Disappointing conclusion to the trilogy, if you ask me, featuring a crazy movie maker, a spooky castle, pre-war spying, spells and potions and the rest of the cast from her previous books. It's still better than most commercial dreck, but it's not the best of the books. I'd give that award to The Vanished Child. Read it first.


    5. I quite enjoyed this book, a fitting conclusion to the trilogy, though somewhat different from the first two. Creepy characters, the Grand Guignol, weird goings-on in dark old houses this is a rainy day read for sure!


    6. This was an odd book. I had trouble following things. I missed crucial plot points but made it through the book. Not my cup of tea it just wasn't for me.


    7. This book was a wonderfully enjoyable, but I find it frustrating that the author made comprehension of the book so dependent on having read the prior books in the series.
