Yes, I know it is a coincidence, but I could be forgiven for thinking that Fishpond
has a grudge against Jean Johnson
-- or at least, against her latest series.
The first book, "A Soldier's Duty" took so long to arrive that I had to order it from Amazon... and even though I ordered it from Amazon well after I ordered it from Fishpond... the Amazon book arrived first. (This does not usually happen.)
The second book, "An Officer's Duty", I ordered two copies, one for me and one for my brother. They only sent me one copy.
We shall have wait and see what they do with the third book.
Currently I am reading "The Sword", the first book in her "Sons of Destiny" series. I'm not really sure that it's my cup of tea. It looks to be romance mixed with adventure, rather than adventure mixed with romance, but I can't say I didn't know that. One only has to look at the cover (man's torso, bare-chested, only showing his body from lips to waist) to see that it's marketed as a romance rather than a fantasy novel. Fortunately, unlike most Romance-Fantasies, the author does
know her fantasy tropes, and the plot is holding together so far, and I trust that it will continue to hold together. And there have been some quite amusing bits. 8-)
