Silk House Series  Nov 6, 2009
The Silk House Series is among my favourites. I found it beautifully written and very riveting. I couldn't put it down. I've been anxiously awaiting the 4th book for so long, I've sort of given up that it will ever come out. I thought the plot was intense with its constantly mounting danger and intrigue. I was never disappointed by the action or the climaxes of the novels -- quite the reverse. The character development was superb. If you enjoy history, language, and great characters, I would highly recommend these books!
little slow  May 19, 2008
Threads of Silk reads a little too slow for me. Definitely not a page turner. It was very hard for me to even finish the book.
Riveting sequel to Written on Silk!  Feb 4, 2008
"Threads of Silk" is a continuation of Rachelle and Fabien's story as they seek escape to London, England; away from Catherine de Medici's schemes to use them for her purpose of having her chief enemy, Duc de Guise assassinated. A man whom Fabien has recently found to be responsible for the death of his father. Before Catherine could use Rachelle as bait for Fabien while he is at sea, Fabien rushes back to claim Rachelle as his wife. That quickly turns into a fight between Fabien and his cousin Maurice who had eyes for Rachelle and had begged Catherine to allow him to marry her. Fabien and Rachelle are then held under palace arrest while Fabien carries out his duties to the Queen Mother. Rachelle is coerced into her duties as the courtriere to the princess Margo, designing her wardrobe.

I love how Linda weaves the historical characters in with the fictional characters in her story line. It is very obvious she has researched the characteristics of the historical figures as well as developing her fictional characters. Linda has portrayed the events of France in the throes of Civil war well. Now I believe that this series is a triology instead of having another sequel to the series a fact that I found to be vexing considering that there were a lot of potential for continuing Rachelle and Fabien's story and that it was printed that there would be a fourth. All in all a series that I thoroughly enjoyed!
Anticlimactic, piddling plot  Jan 22, 2008
Threads of Silk is better than its predecessor, Written on Silk, but not by much. There still seems to be an awful lot that is being left for Book 4. Rachelle and Fabian get to play house for a little while as husband and wife but most of their time is spent under house arrest of the Queen. There are some murmurings of subplots of little or no action. There is a brief duel fairly early on between Maurice and Fabian but even that is over with quickly.

As was true with Written on Silk there is so much potential. But it is mostly just an upward slope, building to a great climax that never comes. (This was originally supposed to be a trilogy that is now a series of four but there is a lot of action and resolution that still needs to happen.) That being said, the plot is still aggravatingly slow-paced. At least there is more going on but still not enough action to keep you riveted to the page. I had to force myself to keep reading, but found that I was skimming a lot. There is still no real hope that things will work out- Catherine de Medici holds too much control and you know that something bad is coming. There is still no real climax- no "ultimate battle", if you will, between Catherine de Medici and the Huguenots (or just the Macquinets, Fabian). I'm assuming this action is being saved for the last book. A lot is being saved for the last book...

This installment was a disappointment. Ms. Chaikin should have left the series as a trilogy and made the second and third book stronger plot-wise and with more action to keep you interested. These two books in the middle just keep piddling along with not much reward for your reading. After reading all that's happened so far, you want some resolution. We do get to see some happiness for Rachelle and Fabian but there right under the Queen's thumb. They act like that's not that big of an issue but they should be well aware of what she is capable of. Yet they still act like everything's fine and dandy- which is very naïve to say the least. Too trusting towards someone who is definitely not to be trusted. I'm curious to see how Ms. Chaikin wraps up the story. But I have a feeling the next book won't be worth keeping, either. I haven't been impressed lately with her writing (Midwife of St. Petersburg was also a waste of time with not much of a plot). If you're interested in her writing, I'd suggest starting with her earlier works where the writing is stronger.
