Another great book in the Lymond series I live in perpetual awe of Dorthy Dunnett This one sees Lymond following Guzel to Russia after the events of the last book There he builds up the Tsar's army with some help from old friends Yay Adam Blacklock and tries to suppress all his emotions and make himself into a machine Lymond was even damaged and pulled back than he's ever been in this book and it was tough not to have a perspective of someone close to him I know it's bad when I miss Jerrott But seriously I found it hard to fault him for any jerky behavior after what happened in the last book I think he could drown a puppy at this point and I'd be like Wellhe's had a pretty shitty few yearsIt was nice to have Crawfords back in this book even though they came with a nice side of angst and sadness It was also awesome to watch Phillipa develop into an even MORE kickass character which seemed barely possible after the last book It was great watching her delve into court intrigue Lymond's library and the mystery of his parentage And I think it goes without saying that my favorite scene included a play with many L's in the Hall of Revels 33 Like all the other books there was a big helping of PAIN and terrible things happening and intrigue and twists and turns a lot of which I didn't see coming at all Unlike the third and fourth books it was less constant action but frankly it was probably a nice break since I assume things are going to get INSANE in the next book I can't wait to start the last book but at the same time I don't ever want the series to be over

The Ringed Castle The Lymond Chronicles #5Ed Castle leaps from Mary Tudor's England to the barbaric Russia of Ivan the Terrible Francis Crawford of Lymond moves to Muscovy where he becomes advisor and general to the half mad tsar Yet The Ringed PDF or even as L. It took me a little while to settle into this 5th volume of the Lymond Chronicles after the story arc that had done most to drive the last two volumes had come to a devastating conclusion I knew that there was a story behind that story that must play out that the big uestions that underpin this whole seuence of novels had to be answered and that those two things were in all probability linked; but I needed time to adjust to such a dramatic shift and to new directions that were intriguing but didn’t move that story forward with the same momentum that I had come to expectLymond had travelled to Russia in the company of Kiaya Khátún sometimes known as Güzel mistress of the Harem of Dragut Rais They took up residence in Moscow where he set about creating and training a new military force to serve the Tsar How this came about was far from clear I saw than enough reasons for him he knew that he had the ability to create a fighting force in a country that had no army to speak of; that doing that could establish something lasting of his own with no ties to his troubled past; and that staying away from his homeland was probably the best thing to do in the light of the prophecy that him I was less sure of her establishing a residence and a presence in a new country however strategically places was surely not enoughI have learned though from the books that brought me to this place that everything happens for a reason and that it usually takes times for those reasons to become clear and so I stored that uestion away with others and continued to readIt didn’t take long for me to be captivated by the story that played out in RussiaThe intrigue and the balancing of a fictional story was real history was as fine as anything in this series The descriptions the evocation of the world that Lymond entered was as glorious as anything that had come before And – in time – there would be enough to suggest that Lymond could not – would not – escape his pastI loved that the world of this book was completely historical and that every person and every thing in that world was completely and utterly of its time; so that reading really is looking through a window into the past without ever thinking that there is distance that there is a frame The use of perspective is part of this with Lymond always seen through the eyes of others who have knowledge of him but not complete understanding; so that even as knowledge is gained there is always a feeling that there is to come That was wonderfully effective is this book with Lymond first seen through the eyes of the men he had summoned from St Mary’s his elite mercenary company to train and form a new force to serve the Tsar; and then even effectively through the eyes of a real historical figure an Englishman who had come to Russia who was both a fascinating character in this own right and maybe the man Lymond could have been had his history been less troubledBack in England Phillipa was trying to uncover and untangle that history Her scenes were a lovely reminder of the unresolved story arc that began at the very start of the first book in this series and that was a little lacking in the Russian story; a new view of familiar history to balance the less familiar Russian history; and enjoyable for their own sake because Phillipa has grown into a remarkable young woman and while it is clear that she has learned much it is eually clear that she has many lessons still to be learnedLymond had no wish to set foot on the British Isles again but when the Tsar wishes him to accompany his first ambassador to England and to help the English merchants who want to form a trading company in Russia he recognised that he must do just that There was much drama on the journey and at the destination; certain characters who had not been seen for some time reappeared; and there were signs that some uestions might be answered as I expected but the answers to the most important uestions continued to tantaliseThis was the part of the book that I enjoyed the least; and much as I want to know what happens next I think I need to take a break from the richness the intensity and the elusiveness of these books before I pick up the very last oneThe ending though was fascinating Lymond set out on a course that his friends and allies believed was fundamentally flawed They pulled against him he resisted; and I couldn’t help thinking that there had been a time when they wouldn’t have dared and that he would have reacted far harshlyThat told me he has matured over the course of five books how much everything that that happened had affected him and the people around him and how deeply involved I have becomeWhen reflected on the first book on the series my overriding thought was that it was was lovely to hear the words of someone so much cleverer than me who was so articulate who had a wonderfully rich tale to tell talking at very great length; and that feeling has grown stronger as I have read and I don’t want this to be over but I do want to be ready to pick up the next book
