Das Platincasino selbst Dark Queen GebГhren abverlangt. - Commentaires clientSo blieb mir bis kurz vor Schluss die Protagonistin Charlie absolut fremd.
I recommend it as a light, fluffy read, but certainly not something to read as historically accurate or literary. And definitely not for people unable to accept a bit of fantasy mixed into their historical fiction, because, according to this book, magic is real.
Dec 31, Lara rated it it was ok Shelves: zchallenge , z This book took me a long time to get into, as it clearly was much more of romance than an historical, and the romance wasn't very interesting.
Carroll does a very nice job at making the Dark Queen herself an interesting and complex character. However, the hero did not start out very likeable or particularly unlikeable either.
And the heroine is rather simple in her personality--very serious and overwhelmed with her responsibilities. Each of her younger sisters get their own thread in the This book took me a long time to get into, as it clearly was much more of romance than an historical, and the romance wasn't very interesting.
Each of her younger sisters get their own thread in the story, and it is clear that they have their one big drama that will resurface in their books later in the series.
However, I don't expect I'll be reading them. Sep 04, Shelley Stoker rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Light historical romance fans.

She has no one to ask but the Comte de Renard, although she hesitates to do so because of both their mutual attraction and her uncertainty his intentions are as straightforward as he would have her believe.

The sisters are Ariane, Gabrielle and Miri, all daughters of the earth. Daughters of the earth are like good witches, white witches. Although they can delve into the dark side, the black magic, as does The Dark Queen of the title - Catherine de Medici, who was called a witch during her time, and was rumored to be a first class poisoner.
The mother of the sisters, Evangaline, was a good friend of Catherine's, until they This is the first in a series, surrounding the Cheney sisters of Faire Isle.
The mother of the sisters, Evangaline, was a good friend of Catherine's, until they had a falling out. Evangaline was called the Lady of Faire Isle and was designated the leader of the daughters of the earth, and was well respected and loved in her community.
Now that she is dead, her eldest daughter Ariane has taken on the mantle of the Lady of Faire Isle - not that she thinks that she is up to it!
Ariane is being doggedly wooed by Renard, a Count from the neighbouring lands, who has his own murky background.
Witch-hunters, magical talismans, and mystery are woven into the story, which encompasses the massacre of the Protestants on St Bartholemew's Eve.
Jul 20, Terri rated it really liked it Shelves: historical-fiction , romance. Ariane is the Lady of the Faire Isle.
She is a woman of the earth, a wise woman, a healer. Two men will change her life. And Catherine di Medici will try and destroy her.
The first man, The Comte Renard, arrogantly declares he will marry her, to the point where he has a wedding and she does not come.
His past is dark and he makes a bargain with Ariane that changes her life. The other is a man maed Remy who comes to her with poisoned gloves to try and have her prove that The Queen killed a woman.
The determination of Catherine to get those gloves and stop Remy imperils Ariane, her sisters and many of the women of the island. The book is full of politics, witch finders, romance, some magic, and fear.
And kept me turning the pages. I look forward to the next in the series, featuring her sister Gabrielle Mar 22, Lynn Abbey rated it liked it Recommends it for: readers of romantic fantasy.
Shelves: fantasy , history-reimagined. While this is a charming and easy-reading tale, it's pretty much pure fantasy planted atop a few bits of 16th-Century French history.
And that would be fantasy in both the romantic and "magick" senses. Something Carroll admits readily in the preface.
Catherine d'Medici is the Dark Queen of the title but not the focus of the story, more the deux ex machina.
Catherine's one of those all-purpose historic queens Elizabeth I and Eleanor of Aquitaine also come to mind who can be villain or saint, While this is a charming and easy-reading tale, it's pretty much pure fantasy planted atop a few bits of 16th-Century French history.
Catherine's one of those all-purpose historic queens Elizabeth I and Eleanor of Aquitaine also come to mind who can be villain or saint, depending on an author's need.
I didn't spot any glaring or specific anachronisms though virtually all the main characters have a notably "modern" feel.
There are two more books in this series one each for the main character's younger sisters, I think. I won't avoid reading them, but I won't go on a quest for them, either.

I picked this book up at my local Borders because I enjoy historical fiction light on the history and heavy on the fiction. This one was not exactly what I expected but it was still really enjoyable.
I think if I owned a bookstore, I would place it in the romance section. It really was a historical romance. I found it to be a really fun read and now I'm on to the second book in the trilogy: The Courtesan.
Jun 17, Lynette rated it it was ok Shelves: books-i-haven-t-finished. I expected this book to be very pro-women and pro-feminism. However, when in the first few chapters your main female protagonist is forcibly kissed by her suitor whom she claims she doesn't want pursuing her and she's gasping and whatever, then that reads more like a bodice-ripper than pro-women.
Because clearly, she just doesn't know how amazing men are and has to be shown how much she wants love. I couldn't continue. Aug 02, Annika Paxman rated it really liked it.
I really enjoyed this book! However, here is my disclaimer readers beware Jan 31, Cheap and Lazy rated it it was amazing Shelves: romance , regency-ish , not-standalone , magic , dark.
Nice, long historical romance with a bit of magic. I enjoyed the authors writing style, though her imagination is what impressed me. The dialog inner and outer occasionally wanders into anachronistic.
But thats a small niggle in a great romance with enough non-romance plot to satisfy me and Im fussy about that.
The cast is fairly large, the premise somewhat complex, and the story took several dark turns which I did not enjoy as they were vivid and heartbreaking compared to most Nice, long historical romance with a bit of magic.

She is a mysterious master of evil magic and the supreme commander of a space army bent on galactic conquest. The character has received considerable attention due to her sex appeal as well as for being one of the first major female villains in video games.
The immortal  Dark Queen is the ultimate enemy to the Battletoads , as she attempts to eliminate the 'Toads and Professor T. Bird in order to stop them from hindering her plans to rule the universe.
Even though her height is stated to be 6 feet cm tall on her profile screen in the arcade game which would mean she is actually smaller than the Battletoads , she normally appears to be of a tremendous size in the games, usually roughly four times the height of the 'Toads.
Her shifting size may however be an effect of her magic. Throughout the series she usually appears to taunt the 'Toads during the cutscenes; despite her royal stature, she prefers to be no more cultured than the Battletoads themselves, due to the crude nature of her speech which consists primarily of surfer slang and offensive puns such as calling them "cattle-loads" and "wartfeatures".
She leads a renegade army consisting primarily of anthropomorphic pigs and rats is usually fought as the end boss of the game.
Battletoads user manual. The Dark Queen is introduced in the first Battletoads game. In it, following her defeat by the Galactic Corporation at the Battle of Canis Major , she and her remaining forces have escaped to hide in the planet Ragnarok's World "in dark spaces between the stars.

During the final boss fight, she only has one special move besides basic kicks, spinning until turning into a tornado and then attempting to hit the player how much damage is done to the player is based on how fast she is spinning.
After her defeat, the Dark Queen flees into space, "retreating into the shadowy margins of the galaxy to recoup her losses.
In Battletoads in Battlemaniacs , the returning Dark Queen has partnered with the vengeful computer engineer Silas Volkmire to kidnap Zitz and Michiko Tashoku, the daughter of the President of the Psicone Corporation, creators of the computer-generated portal Gamescape, intending to transform the entire world into Gamescape Kingdom over which they would rule together.
