I don't believe so. This is the only blog review that I remember seeing so far.

It was on a USA Today list the other day as one of the 10 books people were going to be talking about in fall. Could be for all the wrong reasons again though.

Alright, Divia, I'll let you know if I get one :)

I stand corrected - Publishers Weekly liked it a lot. Romantic Times did, too. The others I've seen were more "eh."

I finally found my review online at a place I can link to. It's the last one on this page. I hope the URL remains stable - it points to a library catalog site.

I will probably wait for this to come out in paperback.

I'm planning to borrow from the library whenever it comes in. I've already got Plaidy's two books on her.

My library wait is pretty long too but then I'm not in any big hurry to read it. I'll see what reviews come in from the readers first. Kind of curious that King County would only buy one book. Usually the latest hotest and greatest they get multiple copies. A bad sign?

I don't feel so bad then - I'm number 6 on my library wait list (I think they only ordered one copy as well).

It could be a bad sign. I dont know. With budgets maybe they are only ordering the SUPER HOT books like King or something.

I don't think that's the case here. Economy's still pretty healthy (we do have Boeing and Microsoft up here), besides I recently put in purchase requests for a new issue of a Plaidy book and a reissue of A King's Gray Mare and they're buying those. They have 10 + copies of Heretic Queen on order and only one of The Other Queen? Oh well.

I see there's some excerpts posted on Amazon, as well as a video.

***edited*** Just read the excerpts. Looks like it might be another multiple POV. I'm loosing patience with that style.
