Excerpt from Princess Maritza
There were few hours in the day in which he did not brood over his trouble, over the loss of his career which it involved, and as he approached the top of the downs his eyes were bent upon the ground in deep thought, while in his heart was fierce rebellion against the world and his fel low men.
He was suddenly startled by a sharp and shrill Hallo! And at the same moment was aware of a straw hat racing past him a little to his left. A run of a few yards enabled him to intercept it, and he grasped it in his strong fingers.

    This book is mostly about the politics of a small Kingdom. There are many different factions who are vying for rulership. The main ones are the now reigning king, his wife who wants the kingdom for herself and a Princess whose long reigning family has been deposed. Secondarily it is about the mental and emotional relationship between the princess and a soldier of fortune who meet on a hillside above her school in England and don't meet again until near the end of the book. They are strongly attracted to each other when they meet and continue to think of each other. The soldier becomes a member of the reigning kings army. The princess works to gain support from the citizens of the country so she can overthrow the king and become the ruler.I found the beginning of this book to be confusing. It was hard to figure out who was working for who. I put it aside for awhile until it was almost the only book I had left on my Kindle. It turned out to be a pretty good story. I don't think I will ever want to read it again but I enjoyed the last two thirds of it. If you are into political struggles you will probable love it. It contains some exciting swashbuckling sword play and intrigue. If you are looking for a good romance you should probably pass it up, even though it does have a happy but unexpected ending.

    This is another entry in the Graustark/Ruritania genre that was so popular around the turn of the last century. Plots and counterplots in a fictional central European country, involving not just various claimants to the throne and hangers-on at court, but intrigue among foreign powers.There's the obligatory romance, but the title character is unusually strong and not just a "pretty princess" -- she actively pursues what she sees as her duty to her country, and at one point she even claims to have the heart of a man.One word of warning: a lot of people get killed in this story once the fighting breaks out, and there are a lot of descriptions of heaps of bloody corpses and bodies of slain defenders getting trampled underfoot and such like. It's not all just a fun fairy tale where only the bad guys get punished.

    I can't remember why I chose to download this book, but I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Desmond Ellery is a likeably flawed hero as he champions the cause of the princess Maritza. However, the ending was disappointing. Despite all of her protests that she is the rightful heir to the throne and all of the lives lost to bring her there, she walks away as soon as Ellery declares his love. So much for our strong female character.

    Book was a very good read, and I would highly recommend it. It was free to download, so there's not much complaining I could do.

    The stuff fairy tales are made of. Knights, courts, secret, intrigue, double-crossing, true love, adventure! I couldn't put this book down and thoroughly enjoyed it. The author's descriptions of people and settings are so detailed. This is just waiting to be made into a movie, it has that much action! Easy to read for a book originally published in 1906!
