review Ô E-book, or Kindle E-pub ☆ Sherwood Smith The evil king is dead the war is over and Meliara barefoot countess and reluctant heroine has been swept up into a different kind of battle in the dance halls and drawing room. I imagine if I could be neutral I might've given this book 35 or 3 stars Despite its flaws I liked and cared about the characters Therefore I couldn't bring myself to give it anything lower than a 4 star rating Yes I liked the book but it could've been so much better The book had some of my favorite elements an intelligent sensitive yet tough heroine; an entertaining court life full of intrigues and power struggle; and a very very attractive hero I admired Meliara's courage and learning ability Though she's slow to understand her own heart and some of her actions were muddled by her emotions she's not afraid to admit her mistakes and try to correct them Shevraeth was my favorite kind of hero He was strong brilliant savvy and witty The way he continued to uietly support Meliara even with her outright hostility just melted my heart I loved all the uarrels between Meliara and Shevraeth The romantic tension was palpable However this was also where the problems came up Maybe it's the short length of the book it gave an underdeveloped feel To me some brilliant scenes could've been developed further to maximize the effect and the story also seemed stagnant at times The climax where they finally opened their hearts though touched me could have had sparks and emotional impact The final battle was also a little underwhelming The book was an easy read I was fully absorbed in the story and characters while reading it even though I often caught myself imagining details and exchanges between the characters

The second half Court Duel I wrote in my mid twenties Mel and I shared only one thing being emotionally backward I did try to keep that when I rewrote her story in my forties

Sherwood Smith ☆ 9 Summary

Court Duel; instead of armor they wear beautiful gowns and sinister smiles If she is to survive Mel will have to learn a whole new way of fighting with wits and words and secret allianc. Cute cute seuel to Crown Duel If you pick this up pick up a copy where both stories are in one book I would have loved reading the first book and just flowing right into the second book This one picks up right where Crown Duel leaves off and eventually finds Meliara in the captial I really enjoyed the story and just loved that darling elusive Maruis I will admit even though he was described as having very long light blond hair I just had to imagine him with dark hair because I could not get Lucias Mayfoy's image from the Harry Potter movies out of my mind Too disturbing so the adorable Maruis is dark hair in my head I think he's cuter that way
