The Talisman Ring



by Georgette Heyer

Published: 1936

This is another delightful book by Georgette Heyer, and although I did not love it quite as much as Friday’s Childit may be a close second.  This one was fun because of the mystery.  The characters interacted wonderfully, and, as usual, even the villain was a bit likable.  The pacing of this story was excellent as well.

For me, the only strange part was that this was a completely third-person  narration.  I don’t know how else to say it.  Heyer basically never told us what anyone was thinking or feeling; that was left to be inferred by her descriptions of expressions, reactions, and conversations.  It was interesting, but not very personal.

Still, this was an overall wonderfully fun story, and one that I will probably add to my collection soon.  5/5.
