The Errant Flock is a superbly-written historical fiction novel that takes place in Spain during the 15th century Inquisition Era.
The people of Sagrat were paralyzed with fear. The Inquisitor, Gaspar de Amo had come to their town and was throwing in jail and torturing anyone he thought was guilty of heresy. Unbeknownst to the townspeople and the Inquisitor, the Duke of Sagrat, Luis Peráto, was corrupt and evil, and the cause of many hideous crimes that were being committed in their town.
The pacing in this multi-layered, intriguing historical fiction thriller is perfect. I’ve read four of Jana Petken’s books and have found them to be, unputdownable. The Errant Flock is no exception. Jana Petken has proven herself to be a master storyteller and an exceptional writer. Her razor sharp writing in The Errant Flock brings the historical Spanish Inquisition Era alive.
Treat yourself to a fascinating read. I guarantee that The Errant Flock will keep you in its grip from the first page until the last. Jana Petken is one of my favorite writers. Don’t miss this gem of an author. You will not be disappointed. Kudos, to Jana Petken, for crafting such a magnificent historical fiction thriller.
