Well, actually thinking about it I might read The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton.. I have never read that book all the way through. Something always comes up to interrupt me.

So I do believe that will be next on the Beaudabeau reading list :)

I read a bio of her or maybe it was a different Margaret, Margaret of Hungary, who was Edgar the Atheling's sister who married the Malcolm of Scotland

Queen Hereafter is about this same Margaret. She is better known as St. Margaret of Scotland.

I'm not too far into the book, but so far, so good. I did like Susan Fraser King's other novel about Lady Macbeth.

I haven't read the Lady Macbeth one in a while, but I remember liking it.

I am looking forward to reading the new one.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

These books are the kind of royal historical fiction I like the best...where the main character is a lesser known royal.

Yes, it makes for interesting reading.
