Most fantasy novels have certain elements that make for an entertaining read. This book takes all of those elements and combines them into one story. They left nothing out. And unlike a few books that I've read, where the author attempted to combine all of the key ingredients, the characters' have fully developed personalities. The combination of the three authors is flawless. And, no matter what part of a fantasy novel you like best, this novel does it and does it very, very well. If you never read another fantasy novel READ THIS ONE!!!!!!!

One of my ALL-TIME favorite books. Soo glad I was finally able to get a copy without breking the bank by special ordering it online. That's a very important factor for a college student.

This book was incredible. Although the plot can be considered a norm of fantasy, the re-telling of it by these three authors makes it its own entity. Each reader will most likely have their own favorite of the three women; I had two, Shelyra and Adele. There are several twists in the story that keep you guessing, although it is not one where the villain is kept 'unknown' until the end. Overall, I highly recommend this book for anyone who likes these three authors. I'm well aware that many reviews are only made by those who love the books, but I hope that those reading this will still be influenced to read these, as they are a great find.

I love this book. I read it long ago from the library and I kept having to go check it back out. I finally broke down and found my own copy. The day I got it I was SO excited. I love the characters and the plot is one which draws you in and keeps you moving along excitedly.

The story centers on the rulers of the trade city of Merina: the dowager queen, the ruling queen and the princess. Merina has no military, so when it is attacked the three women must go into hiding to work to save their city and themselves. Since I enjoyed Black Trillium, and this had a similar premise, I decided to try this novel from Bradley and Norton; this time with Mercedes Lackey - whose Valdemar Saga is one of my all-time favorite fantasy series. This wasn't quite as seamless. It was often apparent that each authors took one of the three women as their story-teller. It wasn't exactly disjointed, but it did mean that the novel took quite a while to get going. The characters were very one-dimensional to start with. However, once the plot got going, I really enjoyed the book. The characters grew on me, and the story evolved. Not the best historical fantasy I have read, but still worthwhile.

Three of the female powerhouses of fantasy writing combine forces to write the stories of three generations of powerful women in a royal family of a city that seems to be a fantasy derivative of Venice. As the royal women go into hiding to protect their line and ultimately their city from the overthrow of a covetous empire builder and his nefarious magician who covets the holy relics of this magical city, the writers introduce us to the unexpected personas each woman has already established, unbeknownst to her family. Told in turns from each woman's perspective, Lackey, Zimmer-Bradley and Norton take readers out of the palance into the camps of gypsies, the hidden ways of spies, the peace of the cloister, the waterfront warrens of sailors and river rats and the dingy dens of criminals - for in each unlikely place, these powerful and dynamic women have allies and friends ready to defend them and their beloved city through the final battle between shadow and light.

Maybe I was just in a sour mood, but my opinion this time - oof, bad. They couldn't find a copyeditor who could stand up to the grande dames, I guess. Character contradictions in voice, attitude, and what they knew when; awkward language, silly assumptions - bah. A great waste of talent. The underlying story is good and fun, but the way it's expressed is too often awkward and distracting.
