As with The Strangled Queen, the measure of how much you'll like this book is how much you liked the first book. The writing is still good, the acting is still good, Louis still sucks...
Really, he manages to be both bloodthirsty and a cream puff, impulsive and a ditherer. Peter Joyce does a really good job with this spluttering rant he gives at one point in the book. To his credit he gets a little better throughout the book, mostly due to Clemence of Hungary AKA one of the few actual nice people in France.
Favorite nugget of cynical wisdom: "It is one of the advantages of mediocrity that people frequently decide unanimously upon your name."
