** spoiler alert ** Amazing! I had a hard time starting this book after discovering Joanna and Llewellyn didn’t have a large place in it and I couldn’t image it would reach the heights of Here There Be Dragons. However, it was just as captivating. I was unfamiliar with the history surrounding Nell and Simon and made the blunder of looking up Simon’s really dreadful end prior to completing the book – I just had to know….what a mistake. I did end up finishing the book and loved it…the ending brought me a bit of solace as Nell was so strong. Looking forward to the third – though will be taking a bit of a break. My allegiances are so flighty - going into the book all I wanted to read about were the Welsh, Llewellyn and Joanna and now all I want to read about are the English and the Montforts – a sign of truly what an amazing author Penman is.
