Having decided to re-read the Lymond chronicles, and already armed with Elspeth Morrison's "Dorothy Dunnett Companion", I soon found there were loads of quotations and references not covered in that (although they may be in volume 2, which I haven't got), but a bit of browsing on line showed up this really useful guide. I have the Kindle edition, and its great advantage is that it is ordered in the same sequence as in the novel (rather than alphabetically), so I can with three taps of the screen jump from one book to the other without losing my place in either. The notes are detailed and well-presented, with plenty of pictures, and have most definitely enhanced my enjoyment of the book. Well done, Laura Caine Ramsey!
I do have two small quibbles: the resolution of the pictures in the Kindle edition could be greater: I know it's probably a file-size thing, but, hey, we get used to big files these days don't we? Also, the font size seems to be rather small compared with that of my novel, and I don't want to change the Kindle setting between books, so I just put up with it. A small price to pay for such valuable support.
Of course I'd now like similar companions to the other novels in the series...

The book gave a useful number of answers to the history and detailed references contained in the Game of Kings,although it left me wanting more, hardly surprising given the wealth of quotes, references, and poetry contained in all Dorothy Dunnetts novels

I have recently finished reading Game of Kings and decided to purchase Laura Caine Ramsey's Ultimate Guide for a reread of the novel. The guide is packed full of detail and explanations. It also follows the same page numbers as my copy of Game of Kings (Vintage Edition) making easy to refer to when necessary. I hope there will be more guides for the other books in the series.
