Several people recommended I read the sequel because it deals with John Dee, who is someone I am very curious about. I was unwilling to read that book without reading this preceding volume, and here at last it is.

I am making little headway. There are vast chunks of this book that read like someone's fantasy. The author loves wine so the characters spend page after page drinking the best wine ever. The author loves horses so we get page after page of horse talk, including long descriptions of her riding clothes. I feel like I'm going to Harkness' "special place".

I really wish we could have some romance where the lovers were equal. This business of him taking care of her by drugging her surreptitiously (for her own good!) is less "loving" and more "second degree felony".

Holy cats! They drink a lot of wine in this book.

So far I think that the descriptions I read of this book heretofore just were not...right...somehow. It's a much more cerebral read than I have been led to believe by those who describe it as "Twilight for grown ups." I don't mean to say that it's Eco or Piercy or that kind of inscrutable literary fiction. It's just a well-done story. My love of all things British probably contributes to my enjoyment.

So far it's pretty interesting; although I will never get used to authors describing clothing in great detail while failing to describe faces.

I'm enjoying the quality of the writing. Seems like Harkness is going to do a bit of living vicariously through her protagonist. That could either make for a satisfying escapist fantasy or a trite Mary Sue-athon. So far the writing bodes well for the former.
