Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This historical novel relates the stirring adventures, conspiracies, and feasts prev-alent during the last years of Charles IX's reign in the latter part of the 16th century. The marriage of Marguerite de Valois, sister of King Charles IX, to Henri de Bourbon, King of Navarre, triggers the mostly riotous events of this story. She was Catholic, he was Protestant, and their weddeing took place during the religious wars in France between the Catholics and the Huguenots. This marriage, which astonished everybody, intensified an already burning power struggle between two clans within King Charles's family. The same cult of passion and energy that marks Dumas's The Three Musketeers and other novels also vividly characterizes Queen Margot. This English edition coincides with the release of the French movie version this fall. Highly recommended for most libraries.-Ali Houissa, Cornell Univ., Ithaca, N.Y.
