I'm taking Michelle's Nefertiti with me out of town for the holidays at my parents' home. I'm looking forward to starting it very soon.

Almost done with The Last Queen, Chris. It's a very zippy and engaging read, just what I needed after a string of rather slowly paced novels. I'll be posting a review at HistoricalNovels.info within the next few days.
Browse over 5000 historical novel listings (probably well over 5000 by now, but I haven't re-counted lately) and over 700 reviews at www.HistoricalNovels.info

I just finished Heir to Sevenwaters by Juliet Marillier (historical fantasy). It was amazing, I highly recommend the series.
