4.0 out of 5 stars Solid, a little sad it's the last one, 10 July 2010

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Siren Queen (Mystery at Queen Elizabeth I's Court) (Paperback)
This appears to be the last in the Ursula Blanchard series (excluding the character's brief and rather unsatisfactory appearance in the author's House of Allerbrook writen using her real name). I am sorry for that, as I have generally enjoyed the series and really like and care about the regular characters - I think regular characters are the great strength of series such as these. This one toddles along nicely and reveals some of the complexity of the real Ridolfi plot, though I don't think it's among the strongest in the series. As I have said before, the portrayal of Catholics is rather simplistic in showing evevry single one as being hell-bent on setting up the Inquisition and burning heretics, and this does grate a bit. But I am sorry there will, it seems, be no more of these books.
