it was amazing
bookshelves: historical-fiction

I have finished re-reading The House of Niccolo series and now I am so sad. I am going to miss Claus/Niccolo/Nicholas/Nicol/etc., the brilliant, tough, resilient, tender man who I have come to love, as I love few characters in fiction. This novel was so intense, bringing to an end (most of) the mysteries of Nicholas and his life. We find out who the ultimate betrayer-of-trust of these books, how Nicholas comes to stay in Scotland with his family, how the machinations of politics and war bring the Scots together. The series built my knowledge of history, time and place, character development, and more...the most brilliant set of novels I have ever read.

Now, on to the Lymond Chronicles...
