My copy arrived in the mail last week. I can't wait to read it. I've not yet read any of Hollick's works, but I've heard great things about them.

I've got the original UK version of this on my TBR shelf (A Hollow Crown). It's a doorstopper! I follow Helen's blog and she said she was asked to trim 40,000 words for this US version. I'm saving it for a snowed-in weekend!
