This series is amazing! I enjoy her elegant writing and her restraint. There is just enough and not too much.

Sir Robert Carey has the potential to be an over-the-top character yet he remains just human and fallible enough to be a truly enjoyable hero. Lots of wonderful 3-dimensional supporting characters keep the story moving and the reader entertained. The plots are complicated and the mystery elements are handled very well, I think.

I can't wait to get my hands on the next one!
