"I am not sure if I was supposed to be able to buy this book yet but I went to a small shop in my hometown and there it was. I snatched it up and burned through it in a matter of hours. It was a great read, and kept up with the quality of the other books in the series. Victor is another Argeneau man from the other side of the family tree. I don't know how I feel about these books. I like reading about Margurite's own children and can't wait to read about her!
"This is an amazing way to introduce alternative lifestyles to young children I picked this book up at Hastings right when it came out before the "ban" and will use it to open the channels of communication about Homosexuality for my children someday."
"To me it seemed like this book was forced. There were several times where I had to close the book and check to make sure I was not reading some bound copy of fan fiction. It seemed out of place next to the other three books."
Princess Contessa of Constenipolie knows everything a royal should about diplomacy, self defense, politics and shopping. She ought to. She had every reason to believe that she was groomed to rule. But her next lesson is in betrayal.

I really enjoyed these books. They were light and fun, with the sprinkling of fantasy. A bit on the YA side but still engaging. I finished this in about a day."
"Eclipse was like twilight. It was beautiful. I love the chapter called Fire and Ice. Anyway. Eclipse was probably my favorite out of the three. If not I defiantly liked it more than New moon. These books are wonderful!"
This was defiantly an entertaining read. I really enjoyed the pace the story kept. There really was never a bored moment and the characters were engaging. I liked the fantasy element as well as the bit of action that was thrown in. Finished it in a day."
This is probably my favorite out of the three truth books. I really enjoyed the time travel aspect of this book. It was good that she found a way to breathe a bit more life into the story and the time travel aspect let her be more detailed with the hold and it's world. This took me about a day to read."
"(from the book cover)
Alissa never believed in magic. But then she went to the Hold, a legendary fortress where human Keepers once learned magic from enigmatic Masters. Under the tutelage of the last surviving Master, Alissa discovered that she had inherited her fathers magical ability.
But the Hold is ruled by Bailic, the renegade Keeper who seized the First truth, a book of magic he will use to harness the might of the city of the dead and wreak a war of total devastation. The book has thwarted Bailic's every attempt to access it, while it continually calls to Alissa, who must summon all her will to resist it, If she gives in to the First truths ultimate power and knowledge, she will be utterly changed and the man she loves could be lost to her forever.
This is the third of the four book series. I really enjoyed this one but it did seem to drag on a bit in the middle. Cook hits gold again however with creating a world all her own. I finished this in about a day."
Arthurian legend gets another kick in the pants with this rollicking rewrite of bestseller David's first novel, originally published in 1987. Extensively updated and lovingly revised, this hilarious romp in today's New York features a cast of zany characters, zippy dialogue and enough action and plot twists to satisfy most satirical fantasy fans. After 10 long centuries spent trapped in a magical cave, King Arthur is finally rescued by a pint-sized, wisecracking Merlin, who has aged backwards enough to slip through the bars of his own prison. The "once and future king" arrives, in armor, no less, on the streets of the Big Apple. Soon, with the help of Master Merlin, the charmingly anachronistic and good-hearted "Arthur Penn" is running for mayor of New York. Meanwhile, much to Arthur's dismay, the reincarnated but unemployed Guinevere, aka Gwen DeVere Queen, is already living with Lance, an unpublished and also unemployed "misunderstood" writer. Morgan, aka Morgana le Fey, Arthur's half-sister sorceress, bored and gone to seed in a dumpy New Jersey apartment, becomes angry enough to get back into fighting form when she discovers her spell has been broken. With the help of Moe Dreskin (aka her bastard son, Modred, PR whiz and erstwhile murderer of his royal father), Morgan schemes to put Arthur and Merlin back where they belong. But she has no idea just how determined Arthur's eclectic election team is to fight back and reinvent Camelot in the "kingdom" of Manhattan.

This was just as fun as the first. If you like king Arthur you will love these books. They put the modern spin on Arthurian legend. This book took me two days to read."
"This was a wonderful look at the life of Katherine Parr. It was nice to see a book set in Tudor England that did not center around Anne Boleyn. I really enjoyed that the author went through Henry's laundry list of wives and portrayed it through the eyes of Katherine. Defiantly a good read. This book took me about three days to finish"
"I LOVE these books. They are fun and witty. The characters are lovable. Nelson is great. They are a fast read and the concept of a little lady agency is just great. I am glad she wrote more than one book for this series"
