  1. Jeffrey Keeten

    The Marble Tombs that rise on high,Whose Dead in vaulted Arches lye,Whose Pillars swell with sculptur d Stones,Arms, Angels, Epitaphs and Bones,These all the poor Remains of States Adorn the Rich, or praise the Great Who while on Earth in Fame they live,Are senseless of the Fame they give Thomas Parnell,A Night Piece on Death 1721 Alan Bradley must spend a good deal of time combing the dusty poetic tombs of libraries to find the archaic titles for this book series Whenever a new Flavia book is r [...]

  2. Jeanette"Astute Crabbist"

    Rating 3.5 starsIn which the mystery is solved surrounding the disappearance of Flavia s mother during World War II Also in which Alan Bradley prepares to take the series in an entirely new direction This is a wise move Life at Buckshaw is growing stale, and it s time for Flavia to take her chemistry skills out into the wide world After all, she is almost twelve years old, and beginning to show signs of growing up This works best as a just for fun sort of read I thought the mystery and its resol [...]

    I spend a year waiting for it and a day reading it From the first Flavia mystery five years ago, I have been hooked The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches did not disappoint There is so much I wish I could say about it, but won t for fear I will give something away I will say this, after reading the first lines I said to myself, I knew it But I didn t know it I didn t know the half of it.Just as Bradley has done in each of the Flavia books as they progress, he brings us deeper into the lives and natur [...]

  4. Kristine

    Thanks to Netgalley and the publishers for providing a copy in exchange for an honest review.4.5 stars I adore this series The character of Flavia, the complexity and layers of the relationships, the setting, the players, the word craft, etc In book 5 for the first time Mr Bradley left us with a cliffhanger, and with book 6 we are treated to a roller coaster ride It s almost as if everything that was creating an undercurrent of tension is blown wide open It did feel like the last few books have [...]

  5. Miss M

    As much as I love Flavia, there s just no plot in this one, just a lot of needlessly convoluted, attempted exposition of past events in the series.

  6. Rachel

    Gasp I can t believe I am giving a Flavia book a rating of just three stars but alas I am I have loved this series so much and with much anticipation of book 6 wrapping things up, was a bit disappointed.The book starts out good and has quite the climax in the middle but then it fizzles out Things are vague and the past sleuthing that Flavia did, did not happen in this book Things just kind of fell into her lap so to speak It did leave me wondering if Alan Bradley was using book 6 to lead us in a [...]

  7. Stacey

    In the 6th novel, redacted, redacted, redacted We get some answers, a whole lot questions, and a little bit of heartbreak Also, I might be a tiny bit in love with Dogger There s really nothing I can say that wouldn t be spoilery, except that the only bad thing about a Flavia book is waiting a whole year for the next one.

  8. Jillian

    Mr Bradley, while your first four Flavia novels were fantastic, I can t believe you left us with a cliff hanger at the end of 5 Speaking from Among the Bones was wonderful Very much looking forward to 6 Thanks for a great series

  9. Kaethe

    The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches There s two different stories going on here in one, Flavia is trying to find out about her mother, missing, presumed dead, since the girl was an infant The other is a modern mystery about someone going under a train The first is fascinating, somewhat implausible in resolution, but a deeply satisfying look at family dynamics and the mysteries of one s parents The other is solved without much detective work on anyone s part, least of all Flavia s, and is even melo [...]

  11. Linette

    Oh, Flavia Such intelligence and determination in a young girl make you dangerous not to mention your fascination with poisons and chemistry I probably wouldn t like you so much if it wasn t for your huge sense of fun and adventure, combined with how lost and alone you seem in your stiff upper lip world living in the decaying family home in your little English village There is nobody quite like you Probably a good thing, actually Still, I can t wait until I get to spend some time with you in th [...]

  12. Nancy

    While I think this must be the weakest of the series even so than the christmas one I hesitate to give it a 1 as typically a 1 means I really despise a book.This book was weak, in plot and characterization and resolution So weak, in fact, that I cannot muster up enough aggravation to give the book the 1 that the overall weakness deserves.Characters added, with little to no characterization and that did nothing to advance the plot established characters that had little or nothing to do or say A s [...]

  13. Rebecca Foster

    I shy away from genre fiction, spurn series, and tire quickly of child narrators and yet I find the Flavia de Luce novels positively delightful Bradley s quaintly authentic mysteries are set at Buckshaw, a crumbling country manor house in 1950s England, where the titular eleven year old heroine performs madcap chemistry experiments and solves small town murders Flavia may be spiky and snotty especially to her two older sisters, the one boy crazy Feely, or Ophelia and the other book obsessed Daff [...]

  14. Larry Bassett

    Two of my GR friends who are mystery aficionados highly recommend this series about a precocious preteen girl I am advised that this is a series that is best read in order to get the most out of it However, my free online e book library only had this sixth available so I start here on my trusty Kindle The idea is that if I like it, I will retreat to the first of the series and try to interest my eleven year old daughter I had to stumble through the first chapters due to the absence of character [...]

  15. Beth Cato

    I adore the Flavia de Luce series I received an Advanced Reader Copy of book 5 a year ago and screeched out loud at the excruciating cliffhanger ending I have been counting down the months until the next book s release I was ecstatic to be approved for the ARC of The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches via NetGalley.To sum up the series Flavia is an 11 year old with a passion for poison and chemistry She lives on an isolated British estate with her eccentric father and two teenage sisters World War II [...]

  16. Shannon

    So far this series has had a rollercoaster effect on me I loved books 1, 3, and 5, and was underwhelmed by 2, 4, and this one, number 6 I didn t buy into any of this book I know grief does strange things to people, and Flavia s still a child, but too much seemed totally out of character.Things that didn t sit well 1 Flavia forgot about the dead guy on the train platform.2 Rare drugs were obtained effortlessly.3 The chemistry was straight up mad science Reanimation Really 4 As soon as the Home Of [...]

    I have to admit that I read 1 and 2 in the series and then took a giant leap to this one 6, because I won a preview copy of 7 coming out in 2015, which I ll soon need to review So I know I committed the ultimate faux pas, and maybe someday I ll go back to the others, but in the meantime I m so glad to have read this No regrets Flavia and her family are top of their game here Her mother s body comes home for burial finally, and Flavia s curiosity about her and the family history leads her to some [...]

  18. Ash

    I love every book in this series so much, if I have a daughter I m going to convince my husband to let me name her Flavia.

  19. Brooke

    I don t think I ll ever dislike a Flavia de Luce book The Dead In Their Vaulted Arches was beautifully written like the other books in the series I did feel that this particular one was sadder for reasons I can t say because of spoilers but I really felt sorry for Flavia and saw in this book her small age of just eleven which was nice because her demeanor is years ahead.

    4.5 Sterne Meine MeinungJetzt bin ich tats chlich schon beim sechsten Band der Reihe angelangt und immer noch genauso fasziniert von der 11j hrigen Protagonistin Flavia de Luce wie von dem einnehmenden Schreibstil des Autors Alan Bradley.Ich m chte nicht viel auf den Inhalt eingehen, um keine berraschung vorneweg zu nehmen denn hier geht es dieses Mal nicht einfach um einen profunden Mord, an dem Flavia zuf llig Zeuge wird, sondern um ein uraltes Familiengeheimnis, das endlich die vielen Fragen [...]

  21. Sue

    I won a copy of The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches Flavia de Luce, 6 by Alan Bradley through the Giveaway Contest Once again in this cozy British mystery, Flavia entertains us once again This novel is slightly different than the other novels in the series The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches is about grief and family relationships than solving a mystery There is a murder and mysteries to solve, but Flavia is almost twelve now She begins to cross that threshold from childhood into adulthood during a d [...]

  22. Rowan

    I found this book to be so odd An odd storyline to be sure, and also one that was at odds with the overall tone of the rest of the series I know no one looks to Flavia de Luce for a gritty, true to life tale of woe, but the previous instalments all managed to balance the brightness of Flavia and Bishop s Lacey with interesting mysteries albeit to varying degrees of success This one sort of flew right off the deep end I was excited to read about Harriet s homecoming, as her absence has dominated [...]

  23. Ellinor

    I still remember that I was very reluctant to start reading my first Flavia de Luce book several years ago At the time I was kind of fed up with cozy mysteries, the German title Mord im Gurkenbeet Murder in the Cucumber Bed didn t appeal to me at all and the cover looked like an Addams family wannabe Then my library had a copy of it and I decided to take a look and then maybe finish after a few pages I m than glad I took this step I was hooked from the first page It seemed like Flavia was one o [...]

  24. Caroline

    After the crazy cliffhanger ending of Speaking from Among the Bones, I could not wait to get my hands on this Finally some answers to some of the mysteries surrounding both of Flavia de Luce s parents and their history during WWII There are plenty of de Luce secrets uncovered throughout these pages, the most intriguing of course being there s even to learn about the mysterious Harriet de Luce, who has really been the biggest question mark in the series as a whole.This was fabulous with the numb [...]

    As much as I love Buckshaw, I look forward to the new adventures Please let there be new adventures Mr Bradley
