Brandes thrusts listeners back to 17th-century England, where Thomas Fawkes, son of anarchist Guy Fawkes, is infected with the Stone Plague. The only cure is to join his father's Gunpowder Plot to assassinate the king of England.
I love an author that takes something you've heard about a million times and puts a whole new spin on it! That's exactly what Brandes has done with Fawkes. The story of a son trying to forge some sort of meaningful bond with a father while being pulled in the opposite direction towards the girl of his dreams? All while attempting to figure himself out in the process!? Okay, the outcome in general is known just due to it being historical, and the villain is a tad predictable. Regardless of this, I found it an enjoyable read and would definitely recommend if you like romance, fencing, plagues, and plots!
