Reading the Morlands: "The Princeling", pt 1
So, I was wrong on the identity of "The Princeling". Instead of the Queen, it's John Morland's intended.
There seems to have been a definite improvement in the character of Morland heirs. At least for the moment.
Nannette remains the most interesting character for me, and following that, Jan, John and Mary Percy. Mary Seymour, of course, is fascinating. Impressive use of uncertainty in recorded history - I'll write more on this in the proper review.
It's funny looking at the backs of books further on in the series: I have no sense of connection to those characters, and won't until I know how they connect in with the characters I know. The whole thing is fascinating.
