Publisher’s Weekly reviews Of Noble Family and…

OfNobleFamily-400…they like it. Oh, thank heavens. This is the first industry review for Of Noble Family, so I’m seriously relieved. The nervous making thing about trying something different in each novel is that it’s a lot easier to misstep.

Kowal’s tense conclusion to her highly praised Glamourist Histories magical Regency series (following Valour and Vanity) sees happily married Sir David and Lady Jane Vincent caught up in the intrigues of Sir David’s manipulative family. When they receive a letter indicating that Sir David’s father and eldest brother have died, the Vincents are asked to retrieve a new will from the family estates on Antigua. While en route, they discover Jane is pregnant and so must conclude their business quickly if she is to deliver in England. All is not as advertised when they arrive, and in addition to contending with the oppressive heat and trying to halt the vicious and inhumane management of the family slaves by the odious and presumptuous Mr. Pridmore, the Vincents find themselves once again maneuvering against the machinations of relatives. This is a twisty, emotionally loaded conclusion to a delightful series. Agent: Jennifer Jackson, Donald Maass Agency. (Apr.)
