    Story
    (188)

    The excesses of the young Marquis of Vidal are even wilder than his father's before him. Not for nothing is the reckless duellist and gamester called "the Devil's Cub". But when he is forced to leave the country, Mary Challoner discovers his fiendish plan to abduct her sister. Any only by daring to impersonate her can Mary save her sibling from certain ruin.

    Janet says: "Lovely book but narrator missed the mark"
    "quite funny"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book, which is a delightful mix of outright farce and romance novel cliche. It works because Heyer never gets too arch or over-the-top about it, and always plays it straight. My only quibble is with the narration. The reader's own voice is fine, but the vocal characterization he chose for Vidal is distinctly grating - and unfortunately, not in a good way.

  • The Disorderly Knights

    The Disorderly Knights is the third volume in The Lymond Chronicles following Queens' Play. Dorothy Dunnett's series is cherished for its romance, adventure, and colorful historical scenes. The year is 1551, and Scottish nobleman Francis Crawford of Lymond has been called to fight with the Knights of Hospitallers to defend the island of Malta against the Turks.

    Marcheta says: "James Bond of the 1500s"
    "Discover the worlds of Dunnett"
    Overall

    So glad to hear, at long last, a Dunnett novel. And nicely read, too. If you are new to Dunnett, lucky you - but be warned that she requires attention. Dunnett isn't one to read as background music. I agree with those perplexed by the choice to start in the middle, but I'll happily take what I can get of the wonderful Lymond series. I'll be checking regularly for the rest.... and crossing my fingers while I wait even MORE anxiously for her House of Niccolo series. Yoo Hoo, Audible? - is anyone listening?
