I thought this would be more historical fiction, but it is just fiction that happens to take place during the 1666 London fire. I didn't realize this book was part of a series so some references in the book didn't make sense to me. I didn't enjoy reading it and wouldn't recommend the novel.
This second in Humphries' series about the horrific events that befell Restoration England continues with the murderous exploits of a sect of self-appointed "Saints" who sought to destroy the British monarchy and bring about Armageddon -- and centers upon the battle waged by Humphries' protagonist William Coke and his friends in trying to subdue the fanatics. Once again we see that nothing is as effective as religion in subverting men's minds and enabling them to engage in acts of extreme violence, brutality and diabolical intrigues.
This series of books is definitely not for the squeamish. I have a fair tolerance for violence and mayhem when it serves the needs of the narrative and is skillfully portrayed, but I think I've had my fill of this series.
