Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Characters are fantastic - the mad duke is an entertaining character. He is sexually ambiguous, charming and well...mad!
There are many commentaries on class structure and the mad duke's whim to "entertain" himself which involves satisfying escapades on much deserved nobles.
If ever you want a witty, entertaining novel about swords, honour and much more, I would highly recommended this.
