M'lady witch is a classic fairy tale, which has been done too many times to count. However,the author manages to add in enough witty dialogue and unique twists to keep you reading. And in the end,you find yourself wondering what was the point of the book, but still laughing. Overall this is a pointless tale, but worth it in the end...if you can stand the unorigional plot, if not, don't bother buying this book. If you do, just forget the plot and do NOT try to read any true meaning in the book.It will give you a migrane.

This book is mainly a romance, not an adventure story like the Warlock and Rogue Wizard books. If you like romance novels, you are in for a treat. There are also some good fight scenes. It is interesting to see the three younger Gallowglasses after Magnus has left. I loved the way the book started out-it was hilarious. Though I enjoyed the book, I felt that Stasheff did not write as well from Cordelia's perspective as he did from Magnus's and Rod's. There were also some holes in the plot, and the turnaround in Alain's character seemed unrealistic. I found Alain's and Geoffrey's "disguises" very amusing-they fooled no-one. No doubt Magnus would be thouroughly disgusted. The futuristic anarchists are floundering-after she succeeded with Magnus, Finister uses the same old tactics, but fails because the situation doesn't call for them. She's just too slutty for SPITE'S good. I'm interested in the sudden language shift-all the young people have begun speaking modern English. Could this be part of a sinister plot by VETO? Anyway, M'Lady Witch was a good book, though it was mostly a romance.

An excellent read, if romance doesn't turn you off, though there is plenty of action and Stasheff's brand of witty dialogue present. Cordelia and Geoffrey Gallowglass share the spotlight in this one as Geoffrey tries to soften Prince Alain's character so that he will be worthy of Cordelia. It makes for a fun-filled, romantic adventure.

M'Lady Witch is charming, a blend of adventure, intrigue, and (of course) a healthy dose of romance. Cordelia Gallowglass, daughter of SCENT agent Rod Gallowglass, has been targeted for destruction by the enemies of democracy on her native planet of Gramayre. Now emerging into womanhood, she has always thought she would marry Prince Alain. Yet Alain seems disturbingly prissy and overbearing, and Cordelia herself is not sure whether she loves him. When he, desperate to prove himself a capable suitor, decides to take lessons in gallantry and romance from her errant brother Geoffrey, she knows she's going to have to stop the two fools before enemies none of them were aware of begin to close in... I basically liked this story. It's fun to get a glimpse of the Gallowglass children as they've grown to maturity, and I have to say that the discussion among the Gallowglasses about what is and isn't love is very important. It isn't Stasheff's best. The characterization is probably better than that of Quicksilver's Knight or (especially) the Spellbound Scholar, but suffers at times from a bit of laziness. I do think it rather silly that Alain should have to stoop to such depths to escape the onus of "arrogance" or that Cordelia should have to make a fool of herself with low-cut gowns and dalliance to catch her man. Come on! What disturbed me most was not Geoffrey's wenching, but the fact that Alain seems to have to participate in it to be considered a true "man." You don't have to stretch that far to loosen up. And is Alain ever honest with Cordelia about his dalliances? Stasheff is going to have to be careful or his characters' behavior is going to end up undermining anything truly valuable, wise, or most of all honest he has the chance to say--and if I've valued certain parts of his work, it was above all for their honesty. It's a light, pleasant read, but misses the mark by a measure in my book.

This was the first book by Christopher Stasheff that I read, and I quickly fell in love with it. This was the book that got me addicted to his work. I would suggest it to ANYONE, and the few people that I did, loved it as well!!

Christopher Stasheff created one of the more tongue-in-cheek series when he wrote "The Warlock in Spite of Himself." This latest edition reflects all the elements that made this series one of the most entertaining in print. Rod Gallowglass, the Lord High Warlock and his wife, the beautiful Gwendolyn (one of the most powerful esper/witches on Graymare), must watch their eldest daughter grow up without their interference. The character of Cordelia is so skillfully created that each reader will immediately know someone just like her. She's beautiful, headstrong, dutiful, and not about to cave in to the man she loves (notwithstanding his status as a prince), until he learns better manners. Unfortunately for the prince, Cordelia is even more puissant of a witch than her mother. This story of young love and romance has enough action, adventure, danger, and humor to keep the most jaded reader interested from one end to the other. Mothers and fathers will see themselves in it, as will those siblings who have a strong-willed sister. An excellent addition to a great series
