Vianne di Rocancheil has been largely content to play the gawky provincial. As lady in waiting at the Court of Arquitaine, she studies her books, watches for intrigue, and shepherds her foolhardy Princesse safely through the glittering whirl. Court is a sometimes-unpleasant waltz, especially for the unwary, but Vianne treads its measured steps well.

Unfortunately, the dance has changed. Treachery is afoot in gilded and velvet halls. A sorcerous conspiracy is unleashed, with blood, death, and warfare close behind. Her Princesse murdered and her own life in jeopardy, Vianne must flee, carrying the fate of her land with her--the Great Seal of Arquitaine, awake after its long sleep. Invasion threatens, civil war looms, and the conspiracy hunts for Vianne di Rocancheil, to kill or to use her against all she holds dear.

A life of dances, intrigues, and fashion has not prepared her for this. Nor has it prepared her for Tristan d'Arcenne, Captain of the King's Guard and player in the most dangerous games conspiracy can devise. Yet to save her country and avenge her Princesse, Vianne will become what she must, say what she should, and do whatever is required.

A Queen can do no less.

The Hedgewitch Queen

I loved it. Also loved the different types of magic. I found the characters very real. Once I started reading, I found it hard to put down.

A simple read

A mediocre romance with much too much clueless introspection to be believable. There are a few good chapters at the beginning but it slowly becomes tedious to the point where you don't care about the characters anymore.

So I liked the book but it kind of stretched out long an a lot a lot was repeated and the fact tht Tristan was always angry bothered me. But I appreciated the fact that we had a female lead who wasn't some stunningly amazing witch or witty person but who struggled constantly maybe a little too constant. But it was a happy relief to those endless amazing female leads who made me want to be them even though I know I never could...

I enjoyed this book. It had a lot of action and a good story line. The romance was mildly endearing and captivating and also sweet.

Although this book is well written and interesting in its own right, I had a difficult time with it. I am a fan of Lilith and love her Dante Valentine and Jill Kismet characters. The Hedgewitch Queen is a large departure from that. This being said I am off to read the next book in this series now that I have adjusted I need to find out what happens!
