    a slight decline in the series...

    I read the entire Dark Queen series, including The Huntress that was published not long ago. I would have to say that after the first two novels, there was a loss of capturing the audience. In the first two novels, I was hooked, I couldn't put the books down. With The Silver Rose and The Hunteress, however, were easy to set down. It took me a week to finish these books. I wasn't disapointed, but I wasn't as captivated. I just thought that Miri deserved a better story. Though, The Bride Finder series was wonderful form start to finish.

    Could Have Been Better

    I liked the book very much. I did not enjoy it as much as the Dark Queen. I however thought susan carrol captured the emotion of simion very well. I could see the characters clearly in my mind. I would have liked to hear much much more about Ariane and Renard. They were the main characters of the whole series acording to me. This book to me turned out as another one of those cheesy Romances books rather than a historical thriller to me like the first book in the trilogy.

    What might have been....

    The best thing about this novel is that it finished the Cheney sister trilogy. The Dark Queen and the Courtesan were fantastic books that were able to weave history, intrigue, and romance into the tale of 3 sisters struggling to shoulder their legacy. The Silver Rose attempts to tie up the dangling plotlines and continue the intrigue, however, Ms Carroll doesn't use all of her available resources. Ariane, Renard, Gabrielle and Remy do not really appear in the book, and weakens it considerably. Miri's predicament was the most intriguing, as she was inexiplicably drawn to the one man who seemingly could never accept the entire Miri. Unfortunately, things resolve themselves in typical romance book fashion (remorse, redemption and happily ever after). The potential resistance from her family is glossed over, and it if Carroll was going for a happily ever after, she should have returned Faire Isle to the place it was at the beginning of the Dark Queen. While it's satisfying to see Miri and Simon together, it's disappointing to realize what this novel could have been.
