    Wonderfully exciting!

    I loved this book. Nicole Galland does not dissapoint. The plot was interesting and intriguing, I couldn't put the book down--I had to find out what was going to happen next! There are wonderful, exciting and unexpected twists in the storyline. The characters are well-rounded, humourous, and easy to relate to. What a fun read. Highly recommended!!!

    It was okay

    Despite the fact that I absolutely love Nicole Galland's 'Fool's Tale', I feel as if 'Revenge of the Rose' was not her best one. The setting itself of the story was so confined in the sibling's 'the main character' home and the royal court that it felt almost like a Shakespearean play. I also felt like there was something lacking making some of the characters appear one-dimensional. I was hoping there was more complexity in the character of the siblings, Willem and Lienor, as they had the potential to and were more interesting at the start of the book. On the plus side though, Jouglet's secret was a really interesting twist. And the book still has Galland's usual humor.

    Very entertaining

    I know that there were hardly any real historical facts in this book I still found it wonderfully entertaining. Most historical fiction books I already know the ending because well it's history so it was nice to not know the ending beforehand this time.

    Not What I'd Expected

    A silly medieval soap opera, complete with farcical misunderstandings, illicit pregnancy, upper crust scheming, and mistaken identities. It's fine if you like that sort of thing, but I prefer historical fiction with more depth.

    Brilliant

    As she demonstrated in her first book , The Fool's Tale, Miss Galland is a splendidly interesting writer and an imaginative genius. Not a bad historian either.
