    3. Jean Gill s Song Hereafter, the final book in the series about troubadours Dragonetz and Estela is a remarkable achievement Every character, and that includes the horses, dogs and hawks, is bursting with vitality, and Gill s lush descriptions of Moorish palaces seduce you as they send you on journey full of treachery, adventure and romance.At the heart of these books are the religious divisions that shaped that era, and so there are enemies aplenty, and real passions as each character crusades f [...]

    8. I m a big fan of Jean Gill s books and have been waiting for the final installment of the Troubadours Quartet with delicious anticipation It exceeded all my expectations and I loved it Before the story starts the author shows us authentic maps of the area from the 12th century, gives us a short background into Wales of 1153, and introduces us to the historical characters who appear in her series, followed by her main fictional characters Dragonetz and Estela already felt like old friends along w [...]


    9. A wonderful book brava Jean Gill s stories are so tightly woven into the tapestry of medieval France and England and the politics thereof that I simply marvel as I read them Her complex plot lines and immersion in the atmosphere of the regions and the time are wonderful, and her use of Occitan lyrics throughout in her troubadors songs enhances the authentic flavor As her characters travel farther afield, she draws the differences in the cultures of the time period so clearly that the people and [...]


    10. A blast of medieval air and irresistible storytelling you can t put down The fourth and final book in the Troubadours Series which continues with Dragonetz los Pros and Estela de Matin, two characters I have been rooting for since the very beginning Without giving a pr cis of the book, I would rather give interested readers a feel for what they are about to read.Song Hereafter is brought to life in ways that only Jean Gill fans will appreciate It s easy to see why this author has won so many awa [...]


    11. I don t read a lot of historical fiction, but I love when a book such as this is packed with historical details that make the story that much richer Whether it s a description of a scenic landscape or an article of clothing, these tidbits put you in the time and place of a story I found myself alternating between reading this book and Googling about this time period because I wanted to know This isn t, for me at least, a setting I ve seen much in books On top of all that, I loved the cast of ch [...]


    12. This is a moving and riveting conclusion to what has become one of my favorite historical series Dragonetz and Estela have to face some of their greatest challenges, both personally and professionally Estela s family rears its ugly head again and she is forced to confront what family means and accept the choices she has made while Dragonetz struggles with honor and loyalty in a way that he can t imagine that spins both Estela and Dragonetz in the middle of intrigue and danger Throughout it all t [...]


    13. I cannot begin to express how highly I rate the whole Troubadours series and as much as I was looking forward to this final instalment, I was also sad to think that this was the end of my journey with Estela and Dragonetz I do love historical fiction but before starting this series, I hadn t read anything set in the 12th Century and whilst it has been a fascinating history lesson it has also been an emotional and exciting journey.Eleanor of Aquitaine, who we first met in Song at Dawn, offers Dra [...]

    16. Song Hereafter was the first book I ve read by Jean Gill, I was assured it could be read as a standalone so despite never reading books out of order, I dove in I really struggled in the first few chapters as to where I was and what was going on, I felt this was perhaps due to not knowing the characters but I soon got into the story I m a huge fan of history books but I don t think I ve ever read after from this time period, I loved it It was a little confusing about the places but there are maps [...]
