Reviewer Rating:


The last Flavia de Luce novel ended with one of the best cliffhangers I’ve ever read, and picking up from that moment, this new installment did not disappoint. When I started tearing up just in the first chapter, I knew I was in for a great read. When I almost started bawling during a scene not twenty pages later, I decided this book deserved five stars for that scene alone. This installment is certainly less action-driven than the rest, and Flavia doesn’t have such a direct impact on the investigations going on, but it is just as strong as the rest as its purpose is quite different. The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches focuses more on the family dynamics than on the mysteries and is a game-changer of a book.
