From the No.1 internationally bestselling author comes the third heart-stopping adventure exploring the incredible history, legends and hidden secrets of Carcassonne and the Languedoc.

Set during World War II in the far south of France, CITADEL is a powerful, action-packed mystery that reveals the secrets of the resistance under Nazi occupation. While war blazed in the trenches at the front, back at home a different battle is waged, full of clandestine bravery, treachery and secrets. And as a cell of Maquis resistance fighters, codenamed CITADEL, fight for everything they hold dear, their struggle will reveal an older, darker combat being fought in the shadows.

Combining the rugged action of LABYRINTH with the haunting mystery of SEPULCHRE, CITADEL is a story of daring and courage, of lives risked for beliefs and of astonishing secrets buried in time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Slow start, but picks up I loved Kate Mosse's previous two books centred around Carcassonne, and she doesn't disappoint here either. She manages to capture the feeling and atmosphere of this ancient city so well that it convinced me to go visit the real place in person! While Labyrinth and Sepulchre were fast-paced reads (despite their size!), Citadel is a bit slower to start but once you get into it, the pacing picks up and is on par with her earlier books. It was fascinating to read about Carcassonne in a whole new light, from the perspective of people living there during WWII.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impossible to put down This one kept me hooked from the very beginning! I could not put it down. It has history, mystery, and a hint of fantasy. You will get roped into the events of WW2 and want to fight alongside Sandrine and Raoul. Beautiful and heartbreaking, this story has haunted me since I finished it weeks ago. I still cannot let go. I see a trip to Carcassonne and Coustaussa in my future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow, I just finished the book, and heart-stopping it was I the end. As with the othertwo books in the trilogy the start seems to be long and slow, but you'll soon find yourself unable to put it down. There are some references to the other two volumes towards the later part of the book but Citadel could equally well be read on its own.

Editorial Reviews

"Citadel, the concluding volume of Mosse's French Trilogy, is also her best ... Fans can expect a passionate finale to a series rooted in a region where history and legend lock horns."-Independent
