Format: Mass Market Paperback
The earlier Castle Perilous novels have had their ups and downs, but have always satisfied on the whole. Bride of the Castle, on the other hand, isn't worth picking up. DeChancie's humor, action, and witty dialogue are still there, but he tries to make the plot too big. There's the main plot of the wedding day of our hero, Gene. and our heroine, Linda, and Gene's doubts about whether and he can be a husband, and the temptation of infidelity before the wedding, which dissapointed me somewhat. Then there's a whole subplot about some guy we've never heard of before, and his struggle to return from an alternate universe to his own home. Confused? So am I, and I read the book. The latest Castle perilous novel take on a plot beyond it's needs, and then ends very abruptly, making it seem like the author didn't have time to come up with a more satisfying ending. New readers or fans(I know there are a few) of Castle Perilous, this book isn't worth your five bucks

Easily the weakest link in the otherwise solid Castle series. That being said it is enjoyable for a true fan of the Castle novels but not on the same level as Castle Spellbound or the original.

If you liked the castle perilous books, you'll like this one. I strongly urge anyone to read the books in the series in order as the set-up depends on knowing the characters really well to get the jokes.

This book is more a soap opera than adventure. The characters spend more time trying to figure out what they want than any action taking place. Also DeChancie throws in a character(s) that make no sense and I couldn't figure out why he(they) were even in the story. This book didn't flow from beginning to end like it should. Add the confusion and lack of adventure there wasn't much to this book unless a person wants to keep up with characters in case of another castle book. This was the first of the castle books that I found disappointing, think before buying it!

This Castle Perilous book was a huge disappointment. This book was missing the wit, charm, and pace of the other books in the series. To be blunt, it was dull, lifeless and unimaginative.
