4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on September 19, 1996
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

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By christineburger@hotmail.com on November 9, 1998
Format: Mass Market Paperback
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!

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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.
