"But as much as she loved her country, it was a damned cold lover." - I love this line and almost cheered out loud at Margaret for realizing it. Pretty awesome, I thought... And on this note I approached the ending, grinning and excited, and BOOM! The last line of the book had a typo (Her smiled widened.), which, instead of leaving me with the impression "What a good book!", unfortunately left me with the overall impression that it needed a decent copy-edit (considering I'd been noting typos all ...more

The books of Crosspointe are different than most series in that each book tells a separate story with a different cast of characters in the lead. Some characters cross from book to book, like Keros the unregistered majicar and Margaret the once thought of pampered princess turned spy and assassin. With that said, some books have more appeal than others and it simply depends on how the characters resonate with you. Some speak to you more than others, and I have to say out of all the Crosspointe b ...more

Another really strong addition to this series! I’m not sure why I waited so long to read it, but alas, I finally did. Perhaps I was hoping for the next book to be out so I wouldn’t have to wait? Unfortunately, the story isn’t done and it doesn’t appear like there will be any more in this series soon.

Each book in this series has been based on a different character. This one was based on Princess Margaret. Some of the characters from previous books do make an appearance, and unfortunately, since i

Diana Francis just keeps getting better and the hits just keep on coming for the characters of Crosspointe. I think this is the novel that finally reveals many of the secrets of Crosspointe as we get to know Margaret Rampling and her arch-nemesis/would-be lover Nicholas Weverton. Each novel of Crosspointe has explored the secrets of Crosspointe, but never has one smashed them all in one novel. Here we come to see the family relationships of the Ramplings, some of the history of the Jutra, and a ...more

I have a love/hate thing with this author. She starts novels by dropping me in with unfamiliar people whom I am not even certain I care about. But the flawed characters inevitably grow and grown on me and later in the story she links in elements from the earlier books in the series. I have to remember to bring patience to her novels because they are worth it. The stories stay with me for quite a while after I close the covers.

Good 4th title in the series. The depth of world-building is beginning to suffer a bit, as the author relies too much on previous books, with little new expansion. Also the only one in the series that really doesn't have even a partial conclusion, which was one thing I liked about the others.

Again, I want more. I really like each of the characters that are highlighted in each of the Crosspointe Chronicles, but I'm hungry for more at the end of each one. Is there a #5 on the way? Please, yes.

I was raised on a cattle ranch in Northern California (outside a town called Lincoln which is now part of an enormous sprawl). I taught myself to ride a horse at the age of six, as no one had the time to teach me—they were all busy learning how to irrigate, how to cajole an angry bull into another field, how to pull a calf… Afraid of heights, and absolutely sure I was going to die, I managed to sc ...more
