Heading towards the end of the series (and I remember crossing fingers for Dorothy Dunnett to stay alive until these were finished!). After the devastation at the end of the last book, where Nicholas basically ruined the Scottish economy for a personal fued, he is cast adrift again in the east. However, his former companion and lawyer Julius and his mysterious wife Adeline follow him to the Crimea, where Adelina tries her best to seduce Nicholas. However, he resists and returns back to Europe; where his family have been busy investigating his illigitemacy.
His battle company fight at Nancy as the Burgundian state falls, and Robin is badly injured. Adleina reappears, capturing Gelis and Nicholas, and attempts to destroy them both; but Nicholas has already recognised her as his child-aunt and draws the sting, reconciling Gelis to him, and resulting in Adelina's death.
We gallop on to the next & final book, hardly able to take it all in and breathe ( )
