That good book feeling

You know, that one that has you staring at the cover of the book in hand and sighing at how good it was? That's how I felt when I finished Crown Duel by Sherwood Smith tonight. Just loved the book. Loved it.

I think I'm going to go find Inda tomorrow. Seriously, I loved Crown Duel. And Inda is supposed to be set in the same world. I want. I will get.

OK, what is this book about? Now I'm curious. LOL.

Here's the blurb:

Young Countess Meliara swears to her dying father that she and her brother will defend their people from the growing greed of the king. That promise leads them into a war for which they are ill-prepared, which threatens the very people they are trying to protect. But war is simple compared to what follows, in peacetime. Meliara is summoned to live at the royal palace, where friends and enemies look alike, and intrigue fills the dance halls and the drawing rooms. If she is to survive, Meliara must learn a whole new way of fighting-with wits and words and secret alliances.

In war, at least, she knew in whom she could trust. Now she can trust no one.

Basically, it's a really good fantasy story with a bit of romance. I really liked it and just bought Inda from Amazon (after going to BN this morning and not wanting to pay the $26 that it was full price).
