Decent book. Most of it was "standard but not really bad", plucky heroine, suitably prickly mentor, decent, if not particularly interesting characterization. Simple if effective plot.

The chief strength of the book is the antagonist, which manages to

I feel cheated. The blurb promised the Presger, and we got basically nothing of them, which makes me sad. The book also kind of ends suddenly, without either a clear cliffhanger or a good "Let's wait here." The actual writing is pretty good, the char ...more

It's one of those books where I don't find the entirety objectionable (if a bi

Now this was a fun read. The plot should be known to most people: A person of distant relation and great likeness to the King of Ruritania becomes embroiled in a plot against said majesty, and forced to play his role. It works through this much-imita ...more
