    One thought on “The Duke in His Castle

    1. Jim on said:

      The Duke in His Castle is a fairly short book about Rossain, the Duke of Violet. Like the other dukes in this land, Rossain has been cursed to never leave his castle but there is one hope for escape. When the dukes were cursed, each was said to also receive a secret power. If any one duke learns the powers of all the others, he or she will be free. While the others plot and scheme, sending messengers to try to pry secrets from their counterparts, Rossain seems uninterested in playing. He simply [...]

      Wow, I have mixed feelings about this one I can't decide if I liked it or hated it. It had a sort of dreamlike quality. I would say the story is somewhat kafka-esque in feel, though not in style. A Duke is trapped in his castle, actually all the dukes of the realm are magically trapped inside their castles and can never leave until they figure out a riddle. Though some look for the answer obsessively, and others occupy themselves with ruling their realms from inside, the titular duke has grown c [...]

      Vera Nazarian, The Duke in His Castle (Norilana, 2008)Interesting novella by Norilana headmistress Nazarian, a blend of fantasy and romance in the classical sense of the term (high adventure mixed with passion, rather than the passion-based stuff we know as romance today). Not without its flaws, but well worth your time nonetheless. Rossian, the Duke of Violet, is the title character, the leader of one of seven duchies in the kingdom that is the world of the novel. Like his six compatriots, Ross [...]

      An interesting tale of power and corruption, "The Duke in His Castle," explores some of the ways power can ensnare us and corrupt us. The Duke, though, is able to overcome the subtle temptations and corruptions and in doing so finds freedom in bondage and salvation in sacrifice. This book explores a peculiar world and the peculiar people who inhabit it. Nazarian's writing style emphasizes the peculiar nature of their world, and though the story moves a bit slowly in places, she twists the plot e [...]

      I love Nazarian's short stories, but this novella didn't work so well for me. It's an interesting world created here, and I'd be curious to read something else set in it. But Nazarian's prose, always lush, tips too far into purple here -- so much so that at first I thought it might be ironic, but alas it is not. There are also some really odd sexual elements that I didn't care for, vis-a-vis issues with consent and the abuse of one character in the service of another's personal arc. And the whol [...]

      The story was unique and very beautifully done. As a novelette, I was ultimately unsatisfied. I wanted to know more about what the heck was going on outside and why - also far more resolution to Rossian's story.BUT! That might have just been me - because it was all in keeping with the tone of the story. And I'm going to say that my dissatisfaction is actually a compliment because I really wanted more.

      I am not sure what I thought about this book was a little strange. It does kinda get under your skin and you want to know how it ends but at the same time it is just so strange
