I fell in love with Francis Crawford many years ago, and still re-read the chronicles almost every year. The complexities are fantastic. Then I discovered Niccolo and another world. I have just finished reading King Hereafter, and like everyone else, am quite speechless with admiration for the depth of her characters. This is the one book I have struggled to find .... all the others are on my well loved bookshelves ready for me to pick up and lose myself in.
WG 137 arrived safely in Nannestad, Norway, today. Looking forward to hours of interesting reading.
It has been a few years since I read the House of Niccolo. I loved the series so much that I read them quite leisurely, becoming so engrossed I never wanted them to end. I fell completely in love with Nicholas, although I can understand how his personality would not necessarily appeal to everyone!
When it came to reading the last book, I just couldn't bear it ending, so it was saved for a long period of time. Finally, I finished it and was glad since she ended it so well. Last year I visited Edinburgh and felt so connected to the Castle, the Cannongate and Holyrood; like I actually knew the former inhabitants!
I will be visiting Iceland this year and I am ordering the guide. Hopefully, I will be able to visit Bruges as well at some point.
I have the Lymond Chronicles but have not been able to start them yet. I am excited to read more, but Niccolo will be a tough act to follow even though I know they were written first.
I am grateful for this society honoring this author.
WG 134 in the mailbox today!
WG 133 arrived just in time for Christmas! Lots of interesting articles to read, so I am saving it for the Christmas holidays. By the way, I am so glad to be a member of the Society and to follow it, Reading Dunnett and Niccolo on Facebook.
