Book Description

To most, Princess Katya Nar Umbriel is a rogue and a layabout; she parties, she hunts and she breaks women’s hearts. But when the festival lights go down and the palace slumbers, Katya chases traitors to the crown and protects the kingdom’s greatest secret: the royal Umbriels are part Fiend. When Katya thwarts an attempt to expose the king’s monstrous side, she uncovers a plot to let the Fiends out to play.

Starbride has no interest in being a courtier. Ignoring her mother’s order to snare an influential spouse, she comes to court only to study law. But a flirtatious rake of a princess proves hard to resist, and Starbride is pulled into a world of secrets that leaves little room for honesty or love, a world neither woman may survive.

This is an entertaining lesbian romance in a fantasy setting, and does justice to both genres. The structure of the novel is very typical of romance, and the main characters are very archetypal. Chapters alternate between the two romantic leads, with Starbride as the innocent heroine thrust into the dangerous and dynamic world of Princess Katya, the dashing hero. Katya is no innocent, and is as skilled in a fight as she is at seducing young ladies. Starbride, of course, is special in many ways, and captures Katya's heart as swiftly as her own is captured. In other words, it's a standard boilerplate romance, and comfortably predictable.

In The Pyramid Waltz, however, the setting is not simply a pretext for the romance. The fantasy world has been constructed with care, with many well developed and intriguing characters and themes. Clearly the story is written to be the first of many parts, and I'm sure I will be reading on. If I have a complaint, it's that chapters could have been devoted to other characters to give even greater depth to the story, and take it more into fantasy genre without sacrificing the main romance arc. Also, forcing the alternation between the two principal characters imposes constraints on the plot, which does become apparent at times.

All in all, an enjoyable read, and I particularly like the creation of a world where a princess has an open reputation as a seducer of ladies. I laughed when her brother says, `Still not wearing dresses, eh?' and Katya replies, `I was just about to ask you the same thing.'

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun adventure 27 Jun. 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
good fun adventure book with an interesting world. People who read a lot of fantasy will be surprised by how magic and normal tropes are done in this world. For such a light read the world building is better than a lot of other longer novels.

The characters are endearing and really well written and you grow to care for them surprisingly quickly. The romance is a little too perfect with no real challenges but still something you root for and again grow to care about.

Definitely worth a read.

4.0 out of 5 stars good read 29 July 2013

I love scifi and fantasy books and am always on the lookout for a good read. This book was good without being heavy.
We have a princess with a secret identity, searching out traitors and threats to her fathers throne, a courtier who wishes to help her own people. Yes they meet, yes they fall in love and yes they have some adventures along the way. This is worth a look.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fast and easy read 29 Mar. 2013

Let's face it, there aren't a lot of lesbian fiction books out there so after a while you're pretty much scraping the bottom of the barrel. The Pyramid Waltz is a sweet little read that won't change your life but might kill a few hours nicely. I enjoyed it.
