    1. I normally don't read much in the way of historical fiction, despite my disposition of speaking Jane Austin-ish with my girlfriend, but I have always had a strange fascination with stories about the bubonic plague, both times they occurred. I remember in middle school doing two projects on it, one for the science fair and one for English class, having read so many books on it. So when I found out Jeani Rector had written her own book on it, I was intrigued to say the least as she is a great writ [...]

    2. Jeani Rector writes of historical horror in Pestilence: A Medieval Tale of Plague. Kudos to Jeani and the fine job she has done writing this impressive historical perspective! In order to bring to her reader the full experience of how horrific the plague was Jeani researched her subject matter well. I was impressed with the details provided even down to the specific bacteria that the fleas contracted. She chronicles the spread of the plague from the deadly bite of the flea to the death of not on [...]

    3. As a public health worker, I was excited to pick up Pestilence, by Jeani Rector. And I was not disappointed. Whenever I pick up a book in which disease is a big feature in the story, I often get ready to pick it apart if it’s not someone who has a background in infectious disease, because I’m kind of a jerk like that. But there wasn’t much to pick at. Ms. Rector has clearly done a lot of research, not just about the disease and its history, but about the conditions of London and the feudal [...]

    4. "[The bishop] couldn't bear to look into one more desperately ill face, to read the Catholic rites over one more diseased body, or to mouth the religious words in which he no longer believed" (73).Pestilence: A medieval Tale of Plague came to me as a pleasant surprise. As a history buff, I was amazed at the historical detail Jeani Rector so smoothly incorporated into her novel. The writing was elegant and modern, so it was easy to read, and each chapter had a fascinating introduction that set th [...]

    5. “Pestilence: A Medieval Tale of Plague” was sent to me for review. I have never read a book about the Bubonic Plague and this sounded fascinating. Jeani has put a lot of research into this story without it sounding like a historical documentary. I loved how it started with a flea’s perspective of the plague, which was ingenious. Most of the chapters start with an account of the plague from the animals that passed it along which I really enjoyed. Elaisse started out as a very annoying, self [...]

    6. Pestilence A Medieval Tale of Plague is very well written. I liked learning of Elaisse and her life through this first person fantasy narrative. It was interesting to see a tale told from the perspective of someone living through it rather than by a nonfiction narrative account of the Plague. I liked the storyline and the characters especially Fern and even Elaisse who changes throughout the narrative from a spoiled, selfish brat to someone who considers others and wants to help them. The only t [...]

    7. Appallingly bad. Yikes.I appreciate that the author was trying to shove in as much info as possible, but it was just that - cramming a bunch of stuff in with no deftness or elegance at all. The story itself is pretty ridiculous. I particularly enjoyed our heroine finding an orphaned baby and IN A STROKE OF GENIUS, foisting it off on a woman buying a burial shroud for her own dead child. Of course the woman is happy to take the replacement baby because that's how things work in this book.I don't [...]

    8. Great Read!!I almost gave this four stars because I believe the ending was unnecessary in that the peasants would believe that blackmail was what had ultimately gotten the princess's attention and earned them the promise of better lives.That problem aside, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It has virtually everything that a good book should have -- characters that are multidimensional (for the most part), descriptive prose, intelligent information (without becoming pedantic), bad guys to hate and [...]

    9. I'm a huge fan of fantasy books and horror. And while there's no dragons or ferries in this, the feel you get from it makes it seem as though you're right in the thick of this medieval world. There are some true horrors in this too, ones that had my stomach rolling, and mainly because it's so based on the real world. Great read.

    10. This was a pretty good book with interesting historical information. It seems to be of a "Young Adult" category in it's rather simplistic style and dialogue. That is not a criticism, however I am of the "Old Adult" category:)
