Pure genius from an incomparable author - I owe my introduction to the works of Sherwood Smith to my sister. Having been an avid reader of sci-fi/fantasy novels for longer than I had been alive, I asked her if there was one author she would recommend to a person above all others. He did not even hesitate to nominate Sherwood Smith, which surprised me a little, as I had never heard of her, having been weaned on Tolkien, Eddings and the Shannara Trilogy by Terry Brooks; ie more commercial, or mainstream authors if you like.It didn't take me long to realise what I had been missing out on. Sherwood Smith is a remarkable author inasmuch as she can fit more detail, more depth of character, more romance (perhaps it does have a place in the genre after all!), and yes, more action and adventure, into one volume than most other authors can after a fully developed duet (or more!).Whilst I must admit that I personally preferred Crown Duel over Court Duel, this does not detract from the brilliance that eminates from...
a noble young woman who's intelligent and keen, yet ignorant - When it comes to fantasy novels, i usually think of black-magic, witches, dragons, and... well... duels. But this book changed my view on fantasy books, this book was wholesome and satisfying which leaves you with an after taste in your tongue; something rarely found in a book. While trying to adjust to the unique "court" life and manner, Countess Meliara stumbles around like a villager, since she wasn't brought up in court but running around barefooted under her own wish. After saving her father's land (as mentioned in this duet CROWN DUEL) she goes off to the land where her rival/evil menace/lover (she is slow to learn of courting matters) the Grand Marquis of Shevrath attends and lives. They some how ended up hating each other in this previous book (READ CROWN DUEL TO GET A GOOD BACKGROUND OF THIS BOOK) yet it seems so stupid and idiotic of her not to notice Shevrath's reactions to her. How he's always "just there" at the right moments or ! the wrong...
drama across psychological terrain - If you've read CROWN Duel, you probably felt as I did: that the wait for the companion volume would be difficult to endure. In COURT Duel, Sherwood Smith remains faithful to the point of view of her heroine, Meliara, so that--for nearly two volumes!--the plucky countess doesn't realize what's between her and the Marquis of Shevraeth. Nor does she discover until the end of the second volume that it will take the combination of their two approaches to solve the problems of Remalna. However, the author skillfully allows the >reader< to know all this and more. CROWN Duel is an enjoyable adventure that begins the passionate argument between Meliara and Shevraeth, as well as revealing the cracks in the established order of their kingdom. The "action" of COURT Duel, with it's fan language and exchanges of letters replacing the shouting matches and pitched battles of CROWN Duel, is no less riveting for being internal and subtle. Without the second...
