A Real Treat...,
This review is from: The Privilege of the Sword (Paperback)
I was given this book by a friend to read during a long journey. Given the cover and the historical fantasy setting I wasn't sure I'd like it but within a page I knew I'd found a great new entertaining writer and by the time I was off my 'plane and into my train journey I was so completely hooked and charmed that I missed my stop and had to spend the night in entirely the wrong city.
The story and characters have romance, charm and rapier-wits that keep turning and dancing right to the last page. Kushner's style flows easily and her imagination is loaded with the rich eroticism and tantalising devilment that you would always hope for in a feisty period drama but so rarely get enough of. It's also a great study of some wonderful characters. Reader, I loved it so much, I bought my own copy.
