More May Additions

Here are the last few additions to the Library for May 2017:

I, Claudius by Robert Graves
Bringing to life the subterfuge and double-dealing of Roman nobility, Robert Graves's I, Claudius brings the ancient world to life with startling clarity and meticulous realism. 
- read it, loved it; watched it, loved it; own it, love it!

The Ashes of London by Andrew Taylor
A CITY IN FLAMES London, 1666. As the Great Fire consumes everything in its path, the body of a man is found in the ruins of St Paul's Cathedral - stabbed in the neck, thumbs tied behind his back. A WOMAN ON THE RUN The son of a traitor, James Marwood is forced to hunt the killer through the city's devastated streets. There he encounters a determined young woman who will stop at nothing to secure her freedom. A KILLER SEEKING REVENGE When a second murder victim is discovered in the Fleet Ditch, Marwood is drawn into the political and religious intrigue of Westminster - and across the path of a killer with nothing to lose...

Lucrezia Borgia: A Study by Joan Haslip (Women Who Made History series)
Read all about it here! The last generation of the powerful Borgia family comes to life in these pages.

Blood Trillium by Julian May
This sequel to "Black Trillium" features the three princesses - Haramis, the intellectual and spiritual one, Kadiya, the wild and courageous one, and Anigel, the youngest and sweetest princess. Each of the princesses hold a powerful talisman - a bud of the long-extinct black trillium.
I have the first - Black Trillium - so, when I came across the sequel, it was a no-brainer. Now I realise that there is three more in the series - Golden Trillium, Lady of the Trillium, Sky Trillium.
