More untranslated French than you can shake a stick at. Despite that, a blazing volume as all the character engage in fierce battle with each other for the control of Lymond who appears determined to end himself. Phillippa is certain that his heritage is the base of his fears and continues to pursue it despite numerous threats to her life and meanwhile something terrible is growing between them at the basis of their Turkish marriage. Who is the the character who claims Lymond in checkmate? Read the book.
