Okay. I loved The Black Tower so I scooped this one up. I won't give a synopsis. I never do.
I gave the School of Night 4 stars because it has all the best of suspense thriller, yet comes up a bit short. You can't rate a book in half stars, but I'd give it 4 1/2 . The action takes place in the present day and 400 years or so in the past. The Elizabethan/Jacobean part was excellent and complete. The modern part wasn't as finished as that. The denouement needed a bit more of an episodic lead up and the ending felt contrived - it also needed more lead up. It was there, but shallow.
HOWEVER - if you liked The Black Tower or Ghostwalk by Rebecca Stott you will certainly enjoy this book.
I thought it thin in the places I mentioned, but overall it is a great listen and I couldn't put it down.

I really enjoyed the other Louis Bayard books I've listened to, but this one was a real disappointment. The story was muddied and the characters not terribly interesting.....all in all, it wasn't up to the quality that I had come to expect from Bayard given my earlier experiences.
