Review: Madame Monvoisin's Emporium of Extraordinary Adventures - Volume 2, by Michael Wombat

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The sequel to Madam Monvoisin Volume 1, does not disappoint. The ending is superb and I was right on the edge of my seat. I have to say I was a bit relieved too, as there was no telling how that was going to end!

Michael Wombat is a master storyteller. Not only does he weave this historically accurate tale around a large selection of his short stories and pieces of flash fiction in a way that is beguiling, but he delivers a story around them that is full of intrigue, and engaging characters.

The continuing story of Etienne and his friendship with Madame Monvoisin follows on from the cliffhangar of the first volume, and we find out about Madame Monvoisin's underground group of aristocrats and what they all get up to. She is involved in far more than just artifacts that can send a person to another place and time for a moment, and discover how she pays the price for it.

I would recommend reading both of these books and anything else written by Michael Wombat if you enjoy great writing, and unique stories.
