I just posted THE SPRING OF THE RAM by Dorothy Dunnett (2nd in the House of Niccolo series).

It has the same ISBN as the trade edition, but my version is a mass-market paperback.

Have you read those, Felicia? I picked up the first one in that series several months ago, but it hasn't gotten to the top of my TBR pile yet.

I haven't read any of the House of Niccolo series, but I was leafing through Spring of the Ram, and it looks good! I took it off my shelf and ordered the first book.
