Dear Listener:

When Ryder Sherbrooke finds a child nearly beaten to death in an alley in Eastbourne, he takes her home to Brandon House. She doesn't speak for six months. Her first words, oddly enough, are a haunting song:

I dream of beauty and sightless night
I dream of strength and fevered might
I dream I'm not alone again
But I know of his death and her grievous sin.

Ah, and just what does this strange song mean that was seemingly imprinted on the child's brain?

She names herself Rosalind de la Fontaine, since she cannot remember who she is. In her first season in London in 1835, under the aegis of the Sherbrookes, she meets Nicholas Vail, the 7th Earl of Mountjoy, newly arrived from Macau. It is instant fascination on both their parts, but for different reasons.

With Grayson Sherbrooke, they are led to an ancient copy of a mysterious book written by a 16th-century wizard. The book is written in a baffling code that neither Grayson nor Nicholas can read.

But Rosalind can, easily.

Strange things start happening. Both Nicholas and Rosalind know it has to do with the old book and, perhaps, even her past, particularly the song she first sang as a child. The urgency builds as they realize Rosalind is the key to a centuries-old mystery.

Enjoy,

    " The book was very slow to start and the jumping dialogue left something to be desired. I found myself struggling to pick up the book and finish until the last 50 pages or so when it really picked up. While I did enjoy the basis of the story, I think it could have been fleshed out and explained better. This really had great potential! "

    " Had potential. Failed to follow through. "

    " I got to page 195 and could read no further. "

    " I truly enjoyed Wizard's Daughter and revisiting the Sherbrooke family. I felt Coulter created a wonderful story that pulls you into the world of two individuals, their destinies, and the mysterious, magical world of the pale. Ofcourse, being a romance novel, there are those infamous "love" scenes; however, they compose only a small part of the story. The story really focuses on Rosalind and Nicholas, and their quest to solve the mystery of Rosalind's past and the pale. I felt the characters and scenery were brought to life; with many twists and turns throughout the story that kept the reader guessing and captivated. Coulter has you rooting for Rosalind and Nicholas from their first meeting to the end. As many Catherine Coulter fans know, Wizard's Daughter is the next book in the Sherbrooke family saga that began with the Sherbrooke Bride. As with all of Catherine Coulter's books, Wizard's Daughter can stand on it's own as a story. If you liked Wizard's Daughter, then I would encourage you to read the stories of the other members of the Sherbrooke family. I guarantee their antics will have you laughing and their stories will captivate you. "

    " The end was a little confusing but it was interesting. "

    " I like this story. Full of danger, magic and love. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 1/10/2014

    " I've enjoyed the other Sherbrooke novels. This one deals with the romance between Ryder Sherbrooke's adopted daughter, Rosalind, and Nicholas Vail. Nicholas is descended from a line of wizards who incurred a debt to an entity with Godlike powers in another dimension. As each male Vail reaches puberty, he starts dreaming about a girl who is that debt. When Nicholas sees Rosalind at a dance, he recognizes her as the Vail debt.Now all he has to do is win her and find out what he needs to do to cancel the debt. Fortunately, Nicholas and Rosalind both love each other because the situation is not an easy one. "

    " When I started this book I was really enjoying it but the ending was a little odd. Not too bad for a romance novel. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Anita | 12/22/2013

    " I like historical romance and I like wizards/fantasy so I thought I would enjoy this because it seemed to combine the 2. Nope, didn't like it. Was very confusing and the wizard part was just plain weird. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carla | 11/20/2013

    " It took a long time for me to really get into this one. I usually like Coulter's novels more than this, but it was just ok. The last 50-100 pages were better than the beginning, and the characters were interesting, but it just seemed like everything didn't quite come together. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Genia | 11/19/2013

    " If you like mystery romance, this is the book for you. Personally, I don't like romance so this didn't really appeal to me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheeri | 11/15/2013

    " Very interesting with a fantastical other world. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dee | 11/15/2013

    " Very good book. Kept you going the whole time. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Leslie | 9/10/2013

    " Doesn't begin to compare with earlier titles in the series. It took me twice as long as usual to get through the book. Even by bringing in earlier characters - it isn't enough to salvage this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tamara | 8/20/2013

    " Enjoyed it while I was reading, but now that I am writing a review a month later, I can't remember much about it. Characters/plot a bit strange in this one. But it is a good airplance read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Connie | 7/4/2013

    " Really good, a little confusing. Not an easy read, I really had to concentrate. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sherry | 2/23/2013

    " Took me some work to get through it. Not her best but also a little off the path of norm for her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 8/20/2012

    " this book was a little sci-fi crossed w/historical romance/mystery. Catherine coulter is one of my fave authors however this was good but a little hard to follow at times. was very entertaining despite the scifi leanings "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Heloise | 4/8/2012

    " Terrible, well not altogether terrible but the dialog, oh my aching head. Want to know more about my opinion? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marian | 1/13/2012

    " I so wanted to like this book, It was just irritating and felt like a romance writer trying to write fantasy.2 stars maybe for the premise and plot concept, which I loved, less the three stars for poor writing-- "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebekah Hamby | 12/10/2011

    " so far its alright a lil boring but like the ppl in it. halfway through was exspecting something to hapoen or b exciting. Um I read half of this and it got no better so I didn't finish "

    " this wasnt as good as i was anticipating at all. the story wasnt convincing and it just lacked alot of things for me. "

    " Strange.

    I plodded through 300 pages of ho-hum. The wedding night was totally unbelievable that I had to shake my head and laugh.

    The last 50 pages turned into a sci-fi fantasy complete with dragons used for transportation.

    Strange book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Barbara | 5/27/2010
