Loved every minute.
Ms Rimmer has written a wonderful book in the first person through the American Dulcie and Prince Valbrand--I love it! Suspenseful but with Dulcie's humorous look at things. Dulcie is a writer and best friend of Princess Brit Thorson who's getting married. Dulcie loves to research and Gullandria's Royal Library is just the place with her AlphaSmart and her new friend Prince Medwyn Greyfell, the King's top advisor. The Prince wants to find the person/persons who have tried to stop him from being King. Dulcie finds herself involved with this search too--The Man Behind The Mask can be Dulcie's romantic hero in real life! Here's hoping we do see more of Gullandria and the Royal Family
An excellent ending to a wonderful trilogy. For all the fans of Ms. Rimmer's wonderful Viking trilogy, this book provides a great endcap. I would highly recommend this book to any reader and would ask Ms. Rimmer to please give us some more books about the great island of Gullandria.
