3.5 Stars. I really liked the setting of this one: England, 1425, shortly after the death of Henry V with Linnet as lady-in-waiting to Katherine Valois; the Duke of Gloucester and the Bishop of Winchester grappling for control of the infant King Henry VI, and featuring quite a few historical players, like Owen Tudor and Eleanor Cobham. Not your typical romantic setting and the political strife plays a large part in the story. I liked the characters and I thought the plot was well-developed, with Linnet navigating the queen's court, the growing power of the merchant guilds, and rumors of sorcery and witchcraft as she searched for the men who ruined her grandfather. I was prepared to rate this higher, but then the devil worshipers showed up and the big climactic scene was just too over-the-top for me. But it's tastefully steamy throughout, and Jamie's a big sweetie-pie, and it was a nice way to spend a rainy day. I'll definitely read more from this author.
