    Victoria Holt could be your new favorite author.

    'When Sir Edward Travers died suddenly an mysteriously, there was consternation and speculation, not only in the neighborhood of his home, but throughout the country.' Victoria Holt never fails to captivate a reader from the very beginning of her books. It isn't often a writer can influence a reader right from the beginning such as Holt. I have been a fan of Victoria Holts for many years and still find The Curse of the Kings one of my top favorites. If you are interested in English victorian era 'romance' novels with mystery, suspence, and intrigue, then Victoria Holt is for you.

    Not the greatest.

    This book is not what I would consider Victoria Holt's greatest. I have read several of her books and found the 'Curse of the Kings' to be dragging. I usually read her books in about two days and to my surprise this book took me about a month. If your planning to purchase this book, I would recommend that you buy her other books and only buy this book if its the only book available.

    It was good but it dragged.

    This is the 5th Victoria Holt book I've read and it wasn't as appealing as the others. The story doesn't have much romance and you can pretty much tell what's going to happen. So far it's one of the thinner books I've read and it took me a few weeks to read but of course being the avid book reader that I am, I was determined to finish reading it. Judith has grown up with an interest in archaelogy since she is surrounded by those who do it for a living. Always dreaming of going off on an expedition, her dream finally comes true when Tybalt, her neighbor and son of a prominent archaelogist, asks her to marry him and off they go on an expedition. Things don't exactly turn out as Judith had imagined both in married life and the expedition. There is said to be a curse which comes upon those who disturb the tombs of the kings. When a series of deaths occur, Judith is very worried about Tybalt, whom seems to be more involved in his work than in his new bride. Judith doesn't want to accept this but there are many things that lead to the idea that Tybalt is not who he seems. When Judith is believed to be the next victim of 'the curse', it is then that the pieces come together as to the mysterious curse and if it really does exist...as well as if Tybalt really loves Judith or not.
