I was saddened to learn that Lypsyl is not readily available here, but Amazon came to the rescue. This stuff is great, and I will be stocking up.

Very brief book, but like all good literature, it made me interested in its topic material. Structure is unique. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read This Now, December 25, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This writer is extraordinary. Her character development is exceptional, and her romance-building story line is fresh. A lot of romance writers will just devolve into sex when they have run out of narrative steam. Not this writer; I am heartily anticipating the rest of her books.


The Queen's Favourite

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read..., October 4, 2014
The topic material interested me at first, and kept my attention for quite some time. There seems to be a lot written about Dudley in his adulthood, and about his relationship with Elizabeth, but not a lot about his youth and his family. That part of this book was very interesting to me. However, that being said, the author is not a very skillful or gifted writer. There is no "spark" here that would mandate reading this book. A lot of historical fiction writers depend on the innate fascination with their topics, but few have the talent to elevate their books into "must reads". This author is not one of those chosen few.

This review is from: Tiger Lily (Kindle Edition)
Initially I was looking for another book by this author, based on a recommendation, but I was caught by this one. It is superb. I always favor books that are other points of view, and this is extraordinary. Highly recommended. Think I will read Barrie now.

Instructions are a bit muddled, but once figured out, this was extremely enjoyable. Good brain exercising. I would definitely recommend this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read, October 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is quite the scathing indictment of the legal system itself, not the results per se. At first I thought it was an anti-death penalty screed, but it is not. It is really more about retribution, and the cost of vengeance. Really extraordinary. The description the jury trial process is funny, profound and all too accurate.


Blue-Blooded Vamp (Sabina Kane series Book 5)
Blue-Blooded Vamp (Sabina Kane series Book 5)
Offered by Hachette Book Group
Price: $6.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Satisfactory culmination, October 27, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really enjoyed the development of characters in this series, both of action and individuals. Our main character, Sabina, was pretty one-note when I first met her. She really got into the self-actualization, but not in an annoying way. I like the fact that she was a kick-ass half-mage half-vampire with major psychological issues, and managed to work through them in a realistic manner.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better and better, October 23, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This series truly has improved with each book. The one thing, among many, that I appreciate is that the author offers no easy solutions. She creates pretty complex problems, both personal and professional, for the characters, and they have to work them through. I really like that. On to the final chapter......

4.0 out of 5 stars Getting ever better, October 18, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Some other reviews of this made it seem like this was a weak, transitional book in the Series. It may be transitional, but it is not weak at all. It clearly sets up big doings in the future, but I found it very enjoyable all on its own. On to the next....
