Synopsis:


When Mally Biddle agreed to spy upon the King of Lenzar and his overbearing knights she knew she was heading into danger. She didn't know she'd find a family unlike any other.

Posing as a servant in Bosc Castle, Mally serves tea and tends fires for the most dangerous men in the kingdom. Her goal is to learn the truth of what happened sixteen years ago, when the infant princess met her death ... a death that is surrounded by more questions than answers.

Along her search for the truth, Mally meets the energized Lita Stump, the strict and matriarchal Meriyal Boyd, and the opinionated Archibald Diggleby. Then of course there are the knights: Leon Gibbs who is slicker than a greased hog, Adrian Bayard, hot tempered and violent, and the worst of the lot: Sir Illius Molick, Captain of the Knights. And then there is Maud, a mysterious woman who just might know everything...

Review

The Tale of Mally Biddle was a great read. The writing was fantastic and all the characters were very well written. This book can be enjoyed by all ages as it's both fun and daring, and innocent and mysterious.

The love relationship in this book isn't a main focus, it's just kind of a side-note that weaves itself seamlessly into the story and the big fan of romance that I am, was completely okay with that! This book was full of mystery and intrigue and I was too busy having fun in Mally's world to be affected by the lack of romance. Trust me though, there are some very sweet moments in this book.

There were a lot of parts in this book that were predictable and easy to see coming, but there were also a lot of things that were completely unexpected. The story was good and I adore historical fiction, so the setting of this book was great for me. This book is a little slow in that not much real action takes place and when something exciting finally does happen it never disrupts the peace of the story for long, but that doesn't bring down the quality of the book at all and though I would've enjoyed a big, explosive, action-filled moment, I was perfectly happy with the story as it was.

This book is a quick, easy read but it's also nice and fulfilling. I really enjoyed the world of Mally Biddle and the characters were all a blast to read about. This book was really fun and my only main dislike of the book was that it ended to soon, when I longed to live inside the story just a little while more!

Fill-in-the-Blanks Interview with Melissa LeGette
Melissa's answers are in blue.


I am cheerful, obsessive, and frantic.

I love to write because it is freeing.

In my spare time I like to read and watch tv.

Chocolate is my fuel booster when I am drooping in the writing.

Sometimes I don't write for days, but the characters and plots are always marinating in my brain … that sounded oddly creepy…

My favourite books are the Harry Potter series because they opened my eyes to reading. When I was a kid, reading was more of a chore than an enjoyment. Harry changed that.

Letting others read your work can always be scary. I get scared when I let people read my manuscripts, even now. It takes courage, but doing it will help you and your work tremendously.

I have never smoked a cigarette and have zero interest in trying one.

When I'm stumped on my novel, I have three plans of attack. 1) Talk to my mom about the issues. 2) Reread and revise previous chapters, in hopes inspiration strikes. 3) Walk away from the project and give the manuscript and myself some well needed time apart.

My first novel was The Unicorn Gil.

Brownies and ice cream are perfectly lovely on their own, but once combined, become a magical creation that haunts my dreams.

Books are gateways into different words. I pinch myself everyday that I'm a writer.


Thank you Melissa!
