Holy smokin story I nearly had a heart attack several times and if I hadn t been at work I would ve sobbed my eyeballs outAnd of course now I can t stop so planned November reads Bye bye This series is absolutely wonderful Why are people surprised that Lymond loves Of course he does so intensely he just can t show itI can t say anything at all without it being a spoilerLymond takes a gift to Sultan Suleiman in Istanbul from the King of France chasing his bastard son before the baby is murdered by the totally evil Graham Mallett As always we see him through everyone s eyes but his New characters and old ever fascinating and richly drawn Incredible detail of the riches and cruelties of the Islamic countries of that time The looting of Hagia Sophia the maze of the Seraglio where the harem is kept the polishing of Phillippa his old friend s daughter from previous books All of it fine beautiful terrifying and achingly sad 111710 I m adding this bit from a blog post that was lifted by someone else in a yahoo group devoted to Dorothy Dunnett because it so much says how I feelfelt about these boooks Unfortunately the lifter didn t give a source so I can t either But anyone who grows to know and love Francis Crawford of Lymond will be able to relate It s a good thing she s dead It was my friend Nora on the phone Not hello Penelope this is Nora how are you Just It s a good thing she s dead or I d kill her I d bugged Nora to read the Lymond Chronicles raving that it was the most intense reading experience of my life Now Nora had just finished book four Pawn in Frankincense She was crying she was raging and she wanted nothing better than to throttle Dorothy Dunnett I knew how she feltLymond is my favorite sort of hero the tormented mastermind He is a poet musician mathematical genius and the greatest military mind of his day He is witty in at least a dozen languages He is also so racked by self loathing that he repeatedly tries to goad otherwise nice people into killing him He commits appalling acts for reasons that may become clear only hundreds of pages later into the story Which brings me back to Nora s phone call Dunnett inflicts some cruel sucker punches on her readers This is embarrassing to admit but at onepoint I screamed Traitor threw the book across the room and began wailing in grief My bewildered husband tried to comfort me saying But it s only a story Only a story For the past six weeks it had been my life

The character of Philippa Somerville pretty well stole my heart in the second half of the prior Lymond novel The Disorderly Knights as I watched her turn from passionate Lymond hater to grudging Lymond supporter largely via her well developed sense of fair play You ve got to enjoy any character who can not only admit she s wrong but take all the necessary steps to redress the wrongs she s done in thought or deed Philippa is in other words a character with character And she s not even a grown up yet as that novel endsIn Pawn in Frankincense she is still uite young but that doesn t stop her doing exactly what she wants which in this case is to take off in search of Lymond that she might continue to make up for her earlier bad opinion of him by helping him in his current uest in a way that she has decided only she can Even though she really doesn t know nothing about nursing no babies as it wereBabies Yes babies For it turns out that Lymond is a daddy having apparently fathered an illegitimate son on the lovely but perhaps slightly foolish Oonagh O Dwyer in between bouts of derring do back in ueen s Play Which son partly through Oonagh s own uestionable choices and partly through the machinations of Graham Reid Mallett revealed last novel as the Moriarty to Lymond s Holmes has been hidden away somewhere in the Ottoman Empire and as Pawn in Frankincense opens is basically being used as the titular pawn by Mallett Lymond of course claims not to care all that much about a mere by blow but he ll be damned if anybody gets used as a human shield by his enemy Philippa though dear Philippa is not fooled and bullies her way onto the team solely by means of her advanced emotional intelligence even though she has no idea how she can really be of help So she just starts learning stuff along the way Like oh Arabic and Turkish for a start Go Philippa goMeanwhile another remarkable woman has shown up on the scene the fabulous and enigmatic Marthe who is attached to Team Lymond as the assistant to the builder of the world s most expensive spinet which TL is charged with delivering on behalf of the King of France remember Lymond s prior exploits on behalf of the current ueen of Scots who is also the Dauphine of France have landed him a French title even though he s Scottish to the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire Thus giving TL the perfect cover for looking for the baby McGuffinBut back to Marthe Marthe Marthe Marthe She is blond and blue eyed and comes off as kind of cold hearted and genuinely doesn t care if other people think poorly of her and devastatingly cunning and intelligent and manipulative and cynical and sound like anyone we know I mean Sebastian and Viola called they want their bit back amiriteNo seriously amirite Because all we get are hints that somehow this French woman with a French name might possibly be somehow rather closely related to Lymond Whom by the way she cannot stand Um wow Just wowAnd it all ends bizarrely and very excitingly in a live chess but not Doctor Who live in this case live means people used as pieces not currents of electricity running through the pieces game deep in the seraglio of the Sultan of the Ottoman Empire And things get tense and tragic And also weirdly satisfying in a way I totally did not see comingI now already want to go back to the first book and read all these again and I m not even finished with the seriesThe blurb for the next Lymond novel The Ringed Castle indicates that his next adventure is largely in Russia But with things as they ve ended here I cannot imagine how that s going to come to pass But I don t have to The brilliant the wonderful the mind boggling Dorothy Dunnett done it for meBut turns out to be not uite as young as I ve been thinking Lymond speaks of her and treats her as younger than she is for a variety of good if irritating reasons and since a lot of the fun of reading these books is being misled by Lymond well there you go At any rate as becomes clear in this novel Philippa is 15 going on 16 so probably newly nubile and given the adventures she has it s probably just as well that most everybody believes she s still a kid though of course the concept of the teenager had a few centuries before it really became a thing As such
