This book was a little slower than the first 2 in the series, but still a very good book. Biggest disappointment came from the cliffhanger at the end of the book, with a promise for Book 4. When I couldn't find it, I contacted the Author and was told that the publisher decided 3 was enough. Chaikin then gave me a one paragraph wrap-up. Bummer! I would have definitely read a 4th book!
Summary: Rachelle and Fabien continue their romance in the face of Catherine Medici's plots and amidst impending religious civil war. Their families are in danger and they are in deep danger due to their beliefs and positions relative to the throne. With their deep faith, they must try to make it through alive.

Thoughts: This book starts rather thrillingly with suspense as Rachelle and Fabien try to stay ahead of Catherine Medici and her plots.

I wanted to really like this book. And the story was okay. But I had a hard time keeping all the French names separate, especially since I was listening to it and I understand things like that better when I can see the words. I see that it is the third in a series and maybe I would have liked it better if I had read the first two, but at this point I have no interest. I really struggled just to finish listening to the book. I hoped that at least there would be some closure to the story if I fini...more
Eh, just couldn't love this book.
I liked the book; it's a really good story but it got a little long-winded at times. Also, the religious parts I tended to just skim right over them so I could get on with the story. I enjoy a book that is clean with a religious element, (like Stephen Lawhead) but sometimes it just gets to be a little too much and I feel I'm in the middle of a sermon. I prefer to read religious books that are non-fiction. Sometimes the fiction ones get on my nerves.
It was an interesting discourse on the reformation in France, but not the spy story I was looking for.
Loved this series, but there will NOT be a 4th book. Very big climax at the end, and no resolution. Book 4 was supposed to be written in 2008. I have read several sites that say they contacted the author, and she is not finishing the series. How very disappointing of her. I would give this higher stars, but I cannot when it was so very disappointing!
I really enjoyed the Silk House series. The end of this book is somewhat of a cliff hanger and a note says the fourth book is to be realeased in 2008! One review I read indicated that person had contacted the author, Linda Lee Chaikin, and she had decided that 3 books in this series was sufficient. Too bad..
I enjoyed this one the best out of the series - maybe because Rachelle finally gets the love of her life:) The intrigue in the French court is very interesting and makes me want to know what will happen to The Queen Mother and Margurite. Chaikin does a fantastic job of making history come alive!
This entire series is a must read. I love the mystery, intrigues, romance, history, and everything in it. I love how the characters have developed over the three books. Now all I need is book four to come out. No clue as to when that will happen.
The beginning was great, but the rest of the book - except for the last ten pages - was a little bit disappointing.
amazing!! kept me in the edge of my seat!!! There was supposed to be a 4th book but it was never published!!
het was echt spannend en leuk!!!
ik hou van historische verhalen en deze verdiend een 10!
Very well written story that takes place in France during the religious reformation.
This book evokes tremendous emotion on the plight of young Chinese girls.
Another spectacular addition to the series!
Loved this series, but where is book 4? :)
nothing short of awesome
a ltitle slow
