Another good (re-read) from Susanna Kearsley, who is on the fast track for overtaking some of my favorite "spooky" writers, Barbara Michaels, Barbara Erskine and Mary Stewart.
Canadian writer Kearsley pens the kind of books I particularly enjoy (and have a hard time finding) for a weekend read - an atmospheric, somewhat romantic mystery set in Europe (particularly Great Britain) and containing historic or mythic references. Named of the Dragon is set in a small coastal village in Wales, and references Tennyson's epic poem, The Idylls of the King (which also happens to be a beloved favorite of mine). Nerd that I am, I knew immediately from reading some reviews that the hero and heroine, Gareth and Lyn, MUST be somehow connected to Sir Gareth and Lynnette of the Idylls, and they were! Lots of Authurian references from the Welsh mythic tales, The Mabinogi, as well as some brief history of Henry VII and his extremely young mother, Margaret Beauford.
I've read all of Kearsley's books now, and this offering, while not one of her best, is still better then alot of what passes for romantic suspense these days, IMO. If you enjoy Barbara Michaels, Barbara Erskine or Mary Stewart, you should enjoy the books of Kearsley.
I'd love to see a resurgence in this genre of book, which hasn't been popular since the 1970's. Alot of current books claim to be romantic suspense, but usually feature 80% romance and 20% suspense, which isn't really my thing. In addition, I personally want my "paranormal" suspense to include spooky houses, ghostly sightings, reincarnation or time travel...not vamps- and weres- and zombie-lovers.... Am I the only one?
