Before long Bianca is caught up in a whirl of mystery that threatens to overcome her good nature as the group travels to the Holy Land where danger comes in yet another form.
The Covered Deep has a lot of elements that make a good and fast-paced novel. Secrets, scandal, high-speed chases, near-death encounters and stark raving mad people come together to create a historical fiction and gothic thriller story not soon to be forgotten. The characters kept me a little confused. One moment I would be mentally berating them for what I thought they were followed by remorse as I seem to have misjudged them. This was really a story that was very different from what I read and I must say it was rather interesting. It had its slow parts but it was an educational view of how depraved people can be and also of redemption.
