Summary

Thirteenth-century Bohemia is a dangerous place for a girl, especially one as odd as Mouse, born with unnatural senses and an uncanny intellect. Some call her a witch. Others call her an angel. Even Mouse doesn't know who - or what - she is. But she means to find out.

When young King Ottakar shows up at the Abbey wounded by a traitor's arrow, Mouse breaks church law to save him and then agrees to accompany him back to Prague as his personal healer. Caught in the undertow of court politics at the castle, Ottakar and Mouse find themselves drawn to each other as they work to uncover the threat against him and to unravel the mystery of her past. But when Mouse's unusual gifts give rise to a violence and strength that surprise everyone - especially herself - she is forced to ask herself: Will she be prepared for the future that awaits her?

A heart-thumping, highly original tale in the vein of Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian, Bohemian Gospel heralds the arrival of a fresh new voice for historical fiction.

Incredible Story!

Where does Bohemian Gospel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have not enjoyed reading a book as much as Bohemian Gospel! I am so very happy it is on Audible now. The story is engaging, the history is engaging! I looked forward to the second book in the series and was not disappointed. Can't wait for the release on audible!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mouse is my favorite, of course. Her story is incredible. She is heroic and a solid character.

Any additional comments?

I hope this story continues and continues! Thank you Audible!

Had me hooked right away!

Bohemian Gospel by Dana Chamber Carpenter and narrated by Justine Eyre is a fascinating and riveting story of love, magic, and the paranormal. The characters are so interesting! A girl called Mouse that has supernatural abilities during a time of witch hunts. A monk that cares for the orphan Mouse and hides her gifts. A young king that falls in love with Mouse. Crazy adventure and action with unique creatures and creepy scenes. The plot goes sideways and keeps the reader on their toes. The ending...blew me away!!! Did not see that coming at all! Wow, I need the next book now!
The narration was excellent! Perfect emotions, timing, and voices!!

Unique Story done very well

Any additional comments?

This was a unique story all of it's own. Like none other that I have read. I truly enjoyed it. it's marked as a series but I don't know how this could be.
