Isolde, Queen of the Western Isle  - Rosalind Miles Underwhelmed, really. A perfectly nice, unchallenging book. Very easy to read, but I also found it very easy to put down and walk away from. At times I found the behaviour of the characters hard to understand - in the "why are you making this such a big deal? Why don't you just... . Settings were vividly drawn. The emotional stuff seemed overly syrupy and I admit to skimming some of the schmaltz. Unlikely to read any more in this series.
(and OMG, whoever designed the cover for this edition... what were they thinking?? one of the fugliest things I've seen. Just sayin')
