I end this penultimate week before my launch with a pair of reviews in blog-land. The first at Dolce-Dolce and the second at Writer Writer Pants on Fire. It is, I will admit, a balm for my pre-launch nerves to hear phrases like:

The novel captures the nuances and intrigues of court life, as well as the excitement and danger of forbidden passions in the torrid Middle Eastfrom a fascinating feminine perspective.
