    Exiled from the court of Queen Elizabeth for accusing a powerful nobleman of treason, swordsman-turned-spy Mal Catlyn has been living in France with his young valet, Coby Hendricks, for the past year. But Mal harbours a darker secret: he and his twin brother share a soul that once belonged to a skrayling, one of the mystical creatures from the New World.

    A different author


    Has The Merchant of Dreams turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What does Michael Page bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He was fine, the story was lacking


    What character would you cut from The Merchant of Dreams?

    the hero's supposed "best friend"


    Any additional comments?

    I had hoped there would be a new location and new cast of lesser charaters after the agony of book one. I only made it fifteen minutes into the book before giving up.

    When Tudor explorers returned from the New World, they brought back a name out of half-forgotten Viking legend: skraylings. Red-sailed ships followed in the explorers’ wake, bringing Native American goods - and a skrayling ambassador – to London. But what do these seemingly magical beings really want in Elizabeth I’s capital? Mal Catlyn, a down-at-heel swordsman, is appointed to the ambassador’s bodyguard, but assassination attempts are the least of his problems.

    What disappointed you about The Alchemist of Souls?

    40% of it was pointless and should have been edited out.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Anne Lyle again?

    no


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    bordem


    Any additional comments?

    I forced myself to listen to this because I purchased book 1 and 2 at the same time. It should have been called: "Homosexuality and Crossdressing In an Age of Religious Fanaticism" She doesn't explain anything about the main thrust of the story or the side characters. It was agony getting through it. I had hoped book 2 would be better once things were established but no.
