On the island of Cyprus. Kicking Isaac Komnenos' behind for daring to mess with my betrothed and my sister.

Interest in HF: started in childhood with the classics, which, IMHO are HF even if they were contemporary when written.
Favorite HF book: Prince of Foxes, by Samuel Shellabarger
Preferred HF: Currently prefer 1600 and earlier, but I'll read anything that keeps me turning the page.

Misfit, you must be reading Roselynde. I just finished that, enjoyed it very much. My first Gellis, believe it or not.
Whoops, forgot you have a copy of Lionheart. Okay, I guess that episode has been pretty well covered. It makes for good plot.

Yes, I am too. Annis, yes, these would be ARCS of the 'L' book!

Souvent entre piez de chevals

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

Yep, it's the "L" book. And I am stuck at work for another hour and a half and then you know where I'm going...

Glad you enjoyed it, and hopefully you'll get Alinor as well. The latter books in the series kind of fall off and a bit silly in the purple prose, but still good reads.
