4.0 out of 5 stars Quite a good follow up. 26 April 2002
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is another episode in the lives of the Sherbrooke family. It follows the story of Meggie from the start of her first London season at the age of nineteen.
I am a great fan of Catherine Coulter, especially of her other four Sherbrooke stories. However this book wasn't quite what I expected.
Without giving too much away, it follows Meggie and her marriage, in typical Sherbrooke fashion. There was a lot of reference to previous books characters, as well as meeting some of them again. It was nice to find out how they had developed as a family. One difficulty I had was relating the 10 year old Meggie to the nineteen year old one. Some of the things she says in this book, sound as though she is a child all over again.
There is also the usual mystery to solve, with Meggie being in danger.
One character that does not reappear is the Dowager, the brothers mother, but there is a new character that is just as sharp and offensive.
On the whole I enjoyed reading this book, but I was left with the impression that there could have been more for Meggie. It could be read as a stand alone book, but would be appreciated more if read in sequence.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pendragon bride 8 Feb 2011
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
It by chance that I happened to stumble across The Heiress, The Hellion Bride and the Sherbrooke Bride (which is my favourite so far) in my local chartiy shop and discovered the 'Sherbrooke Family'. I am totally hooked. This book is about Tyson's daughter Meggie she reminds me of his sister Sinjun who is spirited, loyal and fiesty. Lots of laughs, good plot, didn't guess who the villain was until it was revealed. The cat racing is so funny!!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Author asked me to stop reading her books! 15 Feb 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read the Bride series and loved it. Inside each of her books, she gives her e-mail address for feedback. I found a major typo in this book and also had feedback on the book and when I wrote to her, here is what she wrote back:
You know what, (my name) -- don't read me anymore. Thank you, Catherine Coulter.
I was shocked that an author who makes her living through her fans could be so ungrateful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yet another to add to the keeper file! 13 Jan 2002

Yet another to add to the keeper file!
I had wondered how long it would be before Catherine Coulter to start righting about the children of the Sherbrooke family. This book was great from beginning to end, if you have read the others books in this series you should read Pendragon. I can't wait to see a story about some of the other children in the Sherbrooke family!
Here is a list of the Sherbrooke family stories....
The Sherbrooke Bride
The Hellion Bride
The Heiress Bride
The Scottish Bride.
also try to read...
Mad Jack
The Courtship
( These two books are about friends of the Sherbrooke family )

1.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better 28 Jan 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ok - keep in mind, I am a fan of Catherine Coulter and have been for a long time. This one, though....could have been so much more. The plot line is there (beyond the lost love, to the strange family of Thomas, to the twist in the game), but just isn't developed. A few sentences are supposed to give you everything about Lord Kipper? Hardly! This all left me feeling very flat after finishing the book. But, what's worse - the use of language. Sentences that make no sense, sentence construction that looks like the author doesn't understand English grammer. Catherine - we know you do! Was she going for "Irish speak" or some form of speech that was different in England in the 1800's? Well, if that was the case, it is far from the mark. I kept wanting to edit the book as I went along, and it really disturbed me.
Poor Meggie - the real disservice to her wasn't how her husband or new mother-in-law treated her or the danger she faced, it was her author not playing out her story fully, and not giving good voice to any of the characters except Tysen and Mary Rose.

3.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful gothic undertones -- Recommended 11 Feb 2002
By C. Penn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Meggie Sherbrooke has loved her "dratted" almost-cousin since she was thirteen. Of course, over the six years intervening between the time they met and the present, Meggie almost forgot him; that is, until her coming out allows them to cross paths again. Meggie is immediately smitten, and then heartbroken, as Jeremy announces his engagement to another. Aware of her feelings, Jeremy later behaves rather badly in an effort to disillusion Meggie and free her heart to love another.
Earl Thomas Malcombe expresses his interest in Meggie, but knows her heart belongs to another. Only when medicine he brings saves the life of a younger brother does Meggie afford him the opportunity to spend time together. While she immediately captures his heart, Meggie still mourns the loss of love that never was. Kisses distract her, however, and eventually lead her to marriage with Thomas. But words overheard only an hour after their vows are spoken provoke jealousy and anger, thus ruining their wedding night.
As Thomas and Meggie travel cross country to his family home, they are delayed by a homicide, soon followed by an attempt of Meggie's life. When Meggie's family arrives to offer their protection following a second attempt on her life, Thomas' jealousy increases. Often his negative reactions create unnecessary distance in their relationship, despite Meggie's assurances regarding her commitment to their marriage.
PENDRAGON is my first exposure to author Catherine Coulter's prose, I admit to feeling a bit torn about this book. On the one hand, she creates a lovely background with strong characterizations and delightful gothic elements. Meggie's puppy love for her cousin that eventually gives way to true love with her husband is a delight to watch. On the other hand, her heavy-handed innocence and pressing the point regarding tongues and kisses grows a bit tiresome. Likewise, Thomas presents a bit of difficulty to like. On the one hand, he is a strong male character who handles his brother's escapades with grace. On the other hand, I wanted to shake him and tell him to pay attention when he yields too much to his jealous emotions, especially given his crude use of his wife on their wedding night. Yet even that scene is offset nicely when Meggie and the innkeeper share a bottle of champagne and talk of men. Further, the sparring between Meggie and her mother-in-law also proves to be a delight. She never allows the older woman to repress her spirits despite sometimes cruel, often inappropriate, comments. While I'm not entirely satisfied with PENDRAGON, the remarkable strengths will certainly have me giving this author another read. Recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not one for snappy dialogue... 17 Jan 2002
By Bronwen DuHadaway - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Having read Catherine Coulter for the last 15 years, I can safely say the Sherbrooke bride series is not her best work. The current offering, Pendragon, is as flat as the previous 4 books, offering little to no insight into the main character's thoughts while still providing a thick book. Our heroine, Meggie, supposedly intelligent, tends to prattle on aimlessly, interspersing intelligent thoughts with irrelevant fluff, thus giving this reader the impression of an educated nitwit. Coulter provides no reason for these incredibly circuitous verbal trails of hers. There are no pauses in the dialogue for her to provide us with the heroine's motivation for changing track in the middle of a soliloquy. Nor are there any indications in these unnaturally large chunks of dialogue of Meggie's feelings. You see more of Thomas's feelings, or should I say 'feeling', as he has the same feeling through the entire book - betrayal. Where Coulter could have deepened the story by providing a reason for Thomas's opening comment to Meggie, about lacking a loving mother, she drops this opportunity entirely, leaving us to form our own conclusions of his upbringing. Not particularly easy when all we see is the surface of the characters. Nor does she explain why Thomas's mother behaves as she does - once again, too much verbage with not enough insight. Coulter relies too much on dialogue to carry the plot of the novel, hence there is little depth in any of the characters, as she has failed to reveal the characters' motivations to us, thus delivering a flat, pat story that follows the same formula as the previous four. Get it second-hand if you must finish the series.
