    In my eyes this series just gets better and better I must admit that I wasn t too taken with the enigma that was Niccolo when I first started this series but he has become a compelling character He s a bit softer in this book, not so cold and unfeeling There are some plot twists that I didn t envisage happening and they keep the tension and interest of the series ratched up as a whole I love the settings, a lot of the action takes place in Iceland The characters are wonderfully depicted In my eyes this series just gets better and better I must admit that I wasn t too taken with the enigma that was Niccolo when I first started this series but he has become a compelling character He s a bit softer in this book, not so cold and unfeeling There are some plot twists that I didn t envisage happening and they keep the tension and interest of the series ratched up as a whole I love the settings, a lot of the action takes place in Iceland The characters are wonderfully dep...

    While the climax lacked the sheer emotional punch of a certain book in the Lymond series, To Lie with Lions s conclusion is still one calculated to make your jaw drop at the sheer scale of Dunnett s plotting Nicholas might well be on a course to surpass Lymond in magnificent bastardlyness yes, that s now a word Gelis and Nicholas relationship is a startling war of attrition that s as gripping to read about as it is exhausting for them to experience,...

    This book was a vast improvement on its predecessor, and I m not just saying that because it featured my hero Louis XIprominently Unicorn Hunt was kind of a meandering travelogue that didn t really seem to accomplish much in terms of advancing the plot or the characterizationthough I felt similarly after reading Disorderly Knights for the first time before I had finished the series, so maybe my opinion of that will change once I ve finished Gemini In any event, the main annoyance o This book was a vast improvement on its predecessor, and I m not just saying that because it featured my hero Louis XIprominently Unicorn Hunt was kind of a meandering travelogue that didn t really seem to accomplish much in terms of advancing the plot or the characterizationthough I felt similarly after reading Disorderly Knights for the first time before I had finished the series, so maybe my opinion of that will ch...

    I don t care for Dunnett s Nicollo series as much as her Lymond series Nicholas is rather an oaf given to dangerous games, but at last in this fifth book of the series I keep on reading because Dunnett s use of the English language is thrilling I m beginning to see his charms Dunnett is treating himsoftly I mthan half way finished Dec 2, 2011 and this I believe is the least violent of Dunnett s Lymond and Nicollo books a plus for me Her plotting leaves some implausibilitie I don t care for Dunnett s Nicollo series as much as her Lymond series Nicholas is rather an oaf given to dangerous games, but at last in this fifth book of the series I keep on reading because Dunnett s use of the English language is thrilling I m beginning to see his charms Dunnett is treating himsoftly I mthan half way finished Dec 2, 2011 and this I believe is the least violent of Dunnett s Lymond and Nicollo books a plus for me Her plotting leaves some implausib...

    I thoroughly disliked the book, which was disappointing, especially considering just how much I loved the first few books in this series The feud between Gelis and Niccolo is one of the stupidest I ve ever come across, and the reasons behind it on both their sides felt unconvincing and somewhat repugnant The characterization is also becomingunbelievable with every book, what with Niccolo being a naturally gifted genius in just about every field, including the supernatural, and Gelis ping I thoroughly disliked the book, which was disappointing, especially considerin...

    Oblique, allusive, the master of showing and not telling, Dunnett is a formidable writer Only occasionally do I understand the machinations of each character, though I love the action and the characterizations I did feel the machinery creaking in this one, though, particularly during the adventure in Iceland, filled with erupting volcanoes, walls of fire and marauding bears but serving to advance the plot only a little The ending is astonishing How will Niccolo recover from betraying everyon Oblique, allusive, the master of showing and not telling, Dunnett is a...

    I own the entire Niccolo series and am currently on the 6th of 8 books, although I have listed all 8 and rated them 5 stars in my profile I LOVE this series The best historical fiction I have ever read These books are so vibrant, featuring vivid, real, and lovable detestable characters, illuminating detail and history, and the whirlwind of a trip around the Western world that was in the 15th century These books transport me, and I love them so much that I am dreading tur...

    This series has yet to fully redeem itself from the end of the fourth book The best part of this book is that the worst part of this series has possibly ended That being the incredibly annoying, boring, aggravating, and stupid feud between Nicholas and Gel...
