    1. Re read of an old favorite for the Modern Mrs Darcy 2017 challenge love Victoria Holt and this is classic her If you read enough of her stuff, you see patterns and similarities The last time I read this was many years ago, like 15 maybe And that was probably the second or third time to read it then Anyway, I was immediately pulled into the story and quickly turning pages until I finished despite having read it before Suewellyn, our main heroine, goes through a lot in this story and the settings [...]


    2. This book has a lot of the things that I ve come to dislike about VH s books The long opening chapters about the heroine s childhood and family The non appearance of the hero until page 100 or 150 or worse The lack of any passion, even passionate kissing The hard to believe or totally absent ILY s The first person POV Still, still I enjoyed this one The volcanic island scenes were good, maybe cuz you just knew what was gonna happen The heroine s impersonation will she won t she get away with it [...]


    3. Books written by Victoria Holt are so cheesy, but sometimes that s exactly what you need I ve read a loooot of her books when I was 14 15 years old.at was the last time I ve read them I absolutely loved them at the time I m thinking of reading one of her books just for the old times sake


    4. I knew I had read a few Victoria Holt novels back in the nineteen eighties or there about and sure enough halfway through this one I realized I had read it before However, I finished it anyway to refresh my memory on how it ended Holt spends a good yarn and she didn t let me down in this book Victoria Holt has a wonderful talent of inventing ways for the story to keep moving even when it appears she is headed towards a dead end scenario It s short and a good read Try it if you love nineteenth ce [...]


    5. Victoria Holt really never ceases to amaze me The Mask of the Enchantress is about Suewellyn, a girl who spends her formative years being raised by a couple she calls her Aunt and Uncle, but knows they are not really related to her She spends the beginning of her life really unsure about who she is or where she comes from, and her childhood is flecked with visits from a beautiful woman named Miss Annabel As you can probably surmise fairly early on, Miss Annabel is actually Suewellyn s mother, an [...]


    6. Le do para el 2015 Reading Challenge 27 Un libro que puedas terminar en un d a.Ok, que chingaos acabo de leer Realmente es una buena historia pero no era necesario dividirlo de esta manera, el relato se corta en el mejor momento o por lo menos en la edici n que tengo Es un vil resumen del libro La mascara de la hechicera que no sabia que exist a hasta ahora as voy a leer el de la mascara y olvidar este.



    7. A friend sent me a copy of this book, by the extremely prolific Victoria Holt I read many a Victoria Holt and her other pen names in high school I was a voracious reader even then, but had to adhere to the school policy regarding numbers of books checked out I d check out my maximum each week, and then, during study hall, curl up in the stacks with a selection I d pull from the shelf and put back when the bell rang each day, until that book was done, then pick out another one Back then, the nom [...]


    8. The Mask of the Enchantress made me feel severly uncomfortable in parts Why The overtly sexual atmosphere, and how sex was used to characterize and establish certain characters their respective sex life went hand in hand with their charaterization and their behavior Promiscuity is used to condemn and disaparage characters during the whole of the novel Let me start with the people indigenous to the island near Sydney where the main character, Suewellyn, grows up on, Yes, I am aware of how awful t [...]


    9. A personagem principal, Suewellyn Mateland, viveu com sua tia e seu tio at os seis anos em uma pequena vila do interior da Inglaterra Algumas vezes durante o ano uma outra tia , mais jovem, bela e muito triste, vinha visit la e ent o as duas passavam o dia inteiro juntas e a menininha era muito feliz nestes momentos Certa vez a bela tia a levou para um passeio longo As duas encontraram um homem que estava a espera e fizeram um piquenique e pela primeira vez a menina viu Mateland e se apaixonou p [...]


    10. Kurzweilig, unterhaltsam und spannend ist dieser Roman von Victoria Holt, der genau das Richtige ist f r einen verregneten Nachmittag, denn er entf hrt auf eine ferne Vulkaninsel vor Australiens K ste und l sst einen abtauchen in eine andere Zeit und Kultur.Der Klappentext verr t meiner Meinung nach leider viel zu viel von der Geschichte und man ist besser beraten, ihn nicht zu lesen und sich einfach hineinfallen zu lassen Dann ist die Geschichte spannend und bietet viele berraschende Wendungen. [...]


    11. Suwellyn lives in a small village and is raised by her aunt and uncle Aunt Amelia is pretty strict and Suwellyn looks forward to the visits of Miss Annabel who is gay and happy and brings her gifts On her seventh birthday, Miss Annabel takes her on a train journey on a picnic There she meets a handsome man called Joel and they have a fancy picnic Through the trees, they can see a real life castle which seems magical to the little girl She secretly wishes that Miss Annabel was her mother and her [...]


    12. I picked up this book at a book give away at our local county fair I chose it as I have read many of Victoria Holt s books, but it has been a long time since I read any of them I was pleasantly surprised as I just thought of Holt s books as castle romance This book did have a castle and romance, but it also had murder, mystery, and a story that went from England, to Australia, and New Zealand and back.I felt the book gave a good picture of life in the nineteeth century This includes things like [...]


    13. Suewellen s story was a fun read but I didn t like her mom s story at all I enjoyed seeing her struggle with decisions and whom to trust I liked that there was a little bit of mystery she had to figure out, but it seemed pretty obvious to me Granted her story wouldn t be the same without her parents story, but a depressing family to belong to Spoiler Her mom s story reads like this have an affair with your cousin s husband, run away together with your daughter that you had out of wedlock and hav [...]


    14. Cada vez que leo algo de esta autora me sorprende, que bien me la pase leyendo esta novela, tiene de todo, un par de amantes traicioneros que poco les importa hacer da o a quien aman con tal de darle rienda suelta a sus pasiones.Una peque a huerfana que desea tener a sus padres a su lado, un castillo que atrae a todos con su hechizo y que los incira hacer cosas terribles con tal de poseerlo Un asesinato, una aventura en barco, una isla exotica, un volcan en erupcion que arrasa todo a su paso cam [...]


    15. Tres deseos en un bosque encantado Este libro lo tuve que leer para la materia de L gica en la prepa, y no estoy acostumbrada a la literatura cl sica A n as , pienso que es un buen libro excepto porque pareciera que la versi n que me dieron es en realidad una parte del libro entero Y gracias a ello, hay detalles, como el famoso castillo ese, o el guardia del cementerio que son realmente innecesarios El pr logo no tiene sentido con lo que pasa en el libro Wagh.


    16. Not as good as I remembered it being The first half DRAGS on and on about her childhood and moving to the island So does the clump explaining her parent s relationship, it just went on and on and on The second half feels like a second book tacked on with her taking on her half sister s persona, which was very unbelievable because they were SO different.


    17. My mother loaned me this book with the promise of It s so amazing It was not The whole novel felt like what Leave It To Beaver s mom would read if she wanted something racy It felt like a 60s version of bad Danielle Steel.Overall, my mother was a big fat liar on this one That s a few hundred pages of read time I m never getting back.


    18. I find the entire action on which the story is based very intriguing and attractive It s a very good book surprising and fascinating It s got it all a thrilling base story,wonderful,complex characters,well described backgrounds.It s worth reading


    19. I really enjoyed this one It has been awhile since I ve read one of her books Actually, I probably have read them all but I didn t remember this one I think that it is probably one of her best A mystery romance page turner


    20. This is proof that I ll read almost anything, though Victoria Holt s storytelling goes down easily Unfortunately it is also predictable and redundant This is a 19th century poorly done remake of Josephine Tey s Brat Farrar with gothic overtones.


    21. I read all of Victoria Holt mystery romance books in my 30s Holt books are a higher caliber of romance fiction than something like Harlequins Historically accurate Good recreational reading with something to keep you turning pages.


    22. It was worth the reading ha ha It had romance and suspence which is great for me If i had the chance i would probably read all of Victoria Holt s books hhahhahaha I mean it




    23. Just loved a good gothic when I was a teen At the time I gave this book six stars would I do that now And does it matter, if I enjoyed it at the time


    24. I absolutely love gothic romances with all of the mystery and the strong female characters Victoria Holt is an amazing author incorporating an unforgettable story with amazing characters.



    25. A young woman poses as an imposter when she visits the family castle where her father grew up This book was just okay
