Queens’ Play by Dorothy Dunnett
Queens' Play - Dorothy Dunnett

Series: Lymond Chronicles #2

 

Francis Crawford goes undercover to help protect little Queen Mary from the attempts on her life disguised as accidents. Of course he does this in a completely Lymond style where he almost gets sent home his first week and he’s later suspected of doing things he didn’t do. It was a fun novel and easier to read than the first one, but it didn’t have nearly as many aha moments that made the first book so great. I also found the ending to be a bit of a downer, but I do plan on reading the rest of the series.

 

I read this for the Water Works booklikes-opoly square “Read a book with water on the cover”. At 496 pages, this nets me another $5 for my bank which brings my total balance to $92.

 

I think I’m going to do a tally at the end of how many times I landed on each square because there are a lot of repeats…

Day 8: Geoffrey Pole Taken to the Tower

Only two more days left! By 1538, Margaret had serious fears for her family under the rule of Henry VIII. Then her son, Geoffrey, was arrested and taken to the Tower of London.

In this post, I examined the meaning of all those markings on Margaret Pole's coat of arms.

I'm skeptical of the Lymond and Oonagh battle but the scene where little Mary Stewart brandishes a dagger while daring her visitor to attack her is awesome. 

 

I won't be finishing this tonight.
