I adored Lawrence Schoonover's The Queen's Cross as a young girl and
researched medieval Spain back in college so I recognized the Curse of
Chalion as retelling Isabella/Iselle's story and giving her a far
happier ending than in real life. In history what happened to her
descendants is what was threatened by the curse if Cazaril hadn't succeeded.
I won't say more so as not to spoil it for those who haven't read it. I
really recommend this book to anyone who loves deep rich fantasy with a
sense of history. I'm delighted to find DWJ has read and enjoyed it!
