I’ve decided to write up a little post about one of my favorite genre's, romance. I've included a little bit of everything: data, history, and most importantly recommendations!

Prophecy by S.J. Parris

Cover of Prophecy by S.J. Parris

Prophecy is the second in S.J. Parris' mystery series set in Elizabethan England, featuring the real-life philosopher and scientist Giordano Bruno, who, in the series, works as a spy for Queen Elizabeth I. In this book, he attempts to foil a plot against the queen's life, which is being timed to coincide with an astronomical event.
