a supplement to the first Dorothy Dunnett Companion. Includes information that would have been spoilers in the first book.

Read this first many years ago after finishing the Niccolo series - I was so in love with Niccolo that I didn't have any heart left for Lymond - and sped through the series. Now rereading 15 years later I appreciate the careful plotting and the brash and brilliant hero that is Lymond. Very much enjoying it. (Don't worry Niccolo, I will always love you the most.)

Recommends it for: Fans of Dorothy Dunnett
This book (and the other two companion volumes) was a godsend when I was reading the Niccolo and Lymond series, with plenty of little bits to help untangle the more obscure bits of Lady Dunnett's masterworks. Very much recommended.

This is very helpful in deciphering some of the languages and its notations on historical events and characters.
