Too much descriptive detail for my taste. The story line gets lost in the description. Didn't finish the book.

I found this book to be okay- the plot started out interesting but then it quickly changed into the ridiculous. I found the quality of the writing to be rather poor near the end...
I DO however want to travel to London to see many of the sites and paintings that are described in the book.

I just need a few more days to finish this book. May I have a short extension to my current renewal?

I like this author, I like his books. I really did not like this one at all. I agree with Rotten Mutts, flat is being kind. I want Romanov Prophecy kind of books. Lets hope he gets better.

I have enjoyed Berry's work but this fell so flat, I barely made it through. Soap opera with very uninteresting plot and two boys we don't care about and a navel gazing Malone is not appealing.

So many kings and queens have come and gone, each more self- destructive than the last.
