Kurzbeschreibung

29. April 1997 Legendary Lymond Chronicles (Buch 2)
For the first time Dunnett's Lymond Chronicles are available in the United States in quality paperback editions.

Second in the legendary Lymond Chronicles, Queen's Play follows Frances Crawford of Lymond who has been abruptly called into the service of Mary Queen of Scots. Though she is only a little girl, the Queen is already the object of malicious intrigues that extend from her native country to the court of France. It is to France that Lymond must travel, exercising his sword hand and his agile wit while also undertaking the most unlikely of masquerades, all to make sure that his charge's royal person stays intact.

Synopsis

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Dorothy Dunnett was born in 1923 in Dunfermline, Fife, Scotland. Her time at Gillespie's High School for Girls overlapped with that of the novelist Muriel Spark. From 1940-1955, she worked for the Civil Service as a press officer. In 1946, she married Alastair Dunnett, later editor of The Scotsman.

Dunnett started writing in the late 1950s. Her first novel, The Game of Kings, was published in the United States in 1961, and in the United Kingdom the year after. She published 22 books in total, including the six-part Lymond Chronicles and the eight-part Niccolo Series, and co-authored another volume with her husband. Also an accomplished professional portrait painter, Dunnett exhibited at the Royal Scottish Academy on many occasions and had portraits commissioned by a number of prominent public figures in Scotland.

She also led a busy life in public service, as a member of the Board of Trustees of the National Library of Scotland, a Trustee of the Scottish National War Memorial, and Director of the Edinburgh Book Festival. She served on numerous cultural committees, and was a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. In 1992 she was awarded the Office of the British Empire for services to literature. She died on November 9, 2001, at the age of 78.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The court of Henri II as you never imagined it 21. Juli 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
QUEEN'S PLAY was the first Lymond book I read--stumbled across it at the public library about 20 years ago. I then had to ransack the rest of Washington,DC's branch libraries to get my hands on the other books in the series, and ever since, Dorothy Dunnett has been my favorite historical fiction writer. She is not for the faint-hearted: you must be literate (in several languages if possible)and well read in history of the period if you are to appreciate the books to the fullest. Or, if you come "cold" to the book, the kind of person for whom a novel opens a door through which you begin to learn about the real contemporary history. Her characters are so well-educated and well-bred that I have no problem picturing them at the various European courts where Mrs. Dunnett places them. Modern politics seem very dull indeed in comparison (Tony Blair vs. Mary Tudor!) Mrs. Dunnett writes a beautiful, lush English--one of my major fantasies is inviting her to tea in ! order to find out if she's anything like one of her creations.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Lymond Series is Incredible 17. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
A friend lent me her much loved copies of "The Disorderly Knights" and then "Queen's Play" and I've been hooked on this series ever since. It has a richness of prose and depth of character that set it apart from the average hero story. It also has an intriguing plot line and an interesting view of Renaissance politics. All six books fit smoothly together with a tasteful use of foreshadowing. This is perhaps the slowest moving book of the series, but I find that each time I re-read this I enjoy it more. I would recommend starting at the beginning (with A Game of Kings) instead of in the middle and out of order, as I did. While each book is self-contained, there are enough references to previous incidents to make following the series order worthwhile. This is the series I always recommend when a meet someone who TRULY loves to read. I can't say enough good things about it.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 16th century historical fiction series tops for plots 17. November 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
For those U.S. readers who have not read the "The Lymond Series" by Scottish author Dorothy Dunnett, just hang on to your hats. Written in the 1960's, these 6 volume attempts of a young Scot nobleman to regain his good name, save the baby Mary Queen of Scots,keep Scotland out of the clutches of the greedy English crown, and rescue his own baby son held captive by a ruthless enemy in the Turkish capital of Istanbul are historical adventure at its very best. The hero, Francis Crawford of Lymond, is one of the most complex and fascinating studies in modern fiction. The action begins in Scotland and Enland in the first novel, moves to France in the second, Malta and Africa in the third, Africa,Greece and Istanbul in the forth, Russia and a mad czar in the fifth, and back to Scotland in the 6th. I challange a reader to put any of these books down. Extrordinary story lines.

5.0 von 5 Sternen 16th century Europe in Technicolor 24. Januar 1998
Format:Taschenbuch
I love the whole Lymond series - I know he's perfect, but who cares! This set of are the only books that go with me wherever I move. I can't pick a favourite, but Queen's Play is an example of how complicated Scottish politics could get - and brilliant revision whilst I was supposed to be getting ready for my Scottish History degree finals at University. Immaculately researched, Mrs. Dunnett brings to life sixteenth century Scotland, England, France, Malta, North Africa, the Levant, Muscovy and more - it almost makes you wish for a time machine.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another winner in the Lymond series 25. Januar 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
Another winner in Dorothy Dunnett's tour de force of 16th century Europe. While not as enchanting as The Game of Kings (I dearly miss Christian Stewart--Oonagh O'Dwyer was nowhere close to being a suitable replacement), Dorothy Dunnett's richness of vision creates a compelling read. Although others have recommended starting with this one, I heartily recommend The Game of Kings first, even if just to understand Lymond's reaction to Erskine, his brother (in a bit cameo), and Lady Lennox. A great read. On to the next book!

5.0 von 5 Sternen A good place to start with the Lymond Chronicles 30. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
If you've heard of these wonderful historical novels, but found the idea of six volumes a little daunting, try starting with this one, instead of the first. It's a self-contained story that is told in straight chronological order, unlike the first volume, and you won't need any of the backstory from the first book to follow it. It's a sexy, detailed adventure in the French court of the 16th century. I guarantee you'll go on to the rest if you enjoyed this, though.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Intrigue and suspense abound 21. November 1997
Format:Taschenbuch
Excellent book-I liked it even better than "The Game of Kings". The characters are vivid, the intrigue is complex and the suspense is high as Lymond tries to foil several assasination attempts on young Mary, Queen of Scots. Very enjoyable-I would recommend it to anyone who likes historical fiction and/or mystery novels. Definitely an engrossing page-turner.

Geht so, hatte etwas andereres erwartet nachdem die Niccolo Sage gelesen, welche ich toll fand. Nicht mein Ding, liegt aber eher vielleicht an mir.
