Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Set in the early 17th century, the sixth volume about ``the magnificent'' Skye O'Malley and her family follows her granddaughter Yasaman Kama Begum, daughter of Indian Grand Mughal Akbar and Velvet O'Malley. Yasaman's husband is murdered by Salim, her half-brother, who wishes to resume his former incestuous relationship with her. Yasaman's friends have her spirited off to England, where Jasmine, as she is now called, joins Skye's household and the beautiful, sexually uninhibited widow dazzles the men. When Jasmine remarries, her husband has King James deed her an Irish estate; the tale detours through rural Ireland and Small's superficial assessment of Anglo-Irish problems (``Why can the Irish not learn to get along with the English? One nation conquering another is nothing new'') before tragedy strikes again. Small's ( A Moment in Time ) pointless repetitions and details that simply pad the story could have been pruned by editing, but more than editing is required to repair a tale in which the characters' costumes are almost as well developed as their personalities. (Aug.)

Jasmine is Skye's successor All the O'Malley females are strong, arrogant, manipulative, passionate, and smart. Skye is different. She owns everything in her world. She rules, she commands. Jasmine and Skye are two of a kind. Jasmine is Skye's granddaughter and is most like her. Jasmine is a princess. She was raised to be a ruler. Her spirit is indomitable. Jasmine's strength protects. Her confidence guides, her overconfidence gets her in a lot of trouble.
