Recently ordered Crown in Candlelight online. Wasn't sure if I should get King's Grey Mare too or not.

Just be warned, the font size on that new issue of The King's Grey Mare is very very very very small.

I have the first Edition of The Kings Grey Mare and it's not that great, font size I mean, have yet not read it but Crown in Candlelight I loved.

I'm on page 65 of The Courts of Illusion and really not getting into it. I'll probably read a little more tonight and if my feelings on it don't change, I think I"ll move on.

Question about We Speak No Treason

Post by traveldog » Wed June 2nd, 2010, 1:41 am

I'd thought this was the name of *a* book -- but apparently it's two separate volumes? Or is it three? Someone above mentioned something about the third with the 'keen sighted man'.

I have a copy of what I thought was *the* book but, now that I've learned more, I realize it's "Book One" Since I want to have the full thing before I get started -- am I looking for Book Two, or Books Two and Three? Thanks!!

I had it out from the library and I believe it was four volumes. I don't recall the exact titles. There was the nut brown maid, the joker/fool, the man with Keen Sight and then something about a nun. I gave up on volume three. Perhaps they've been retitled?

It's in four parts. I believe they're all in one volume; my old hardback edition is, at any rate.

I read Speak no Treason but it appears to be only part 1.I think it has been split. In my book there were three stories and it appears then there is Speak No Treason (White rose turned To Blood) part 2.I liked part 1 but I think I have read enough of Saintly Richard who is amazingly attractive to everyone. I recently read BB's blog on Rules of writing about Richard and it was so funny and true I think it will be a long time until I read another fictional account of the war of the roses.

:D :D :D

I feel the same. I so loathe those pure as the driven snow Richard's.
