I liked it, I admit it. It had quiet the drama, suspense, some acceptable amount of action and romance. Just like the previous one, I liked the characters, but some of them were really dumb. There's one part I did not liked, but that is not a good reason to affect the score, so I will ignore it. The ending was good, not REALLY good, but good anyways.

The Crown of Valencia is the 2nd in a 2 book series by Catherine Friend. The main character in the book is a lesbian, which is what attracted me to the book in the first place. There are VERY few lesbian themed books that are well written and that even have a real story line. This book is as well written with character develepment as any of the leading authors today. It is funny, it is thrilling, it has warmth and compassion but the best part of it is the time travel. It is actually believable!! This book left me wanting book 3 and 4 and would make an excellent movie!! I have since read other books by Catherine Friend and find them just as good a read as this one and the first one in the series, The Spanish Pearl. This book is not just for the gay is for everyone who loves to read! You won't want to put it down!
