    One thought on “Chalice of Roses”

    1. This book is an anthology of four romance stories centered around the Holy Grail They take place in four different time periods, and all revolve around having to find the grail or return it to safety It was an interesting take on the legends.In The Raven and the Rose, a 12th century woman about to take holy vows is pressed into a mission to locate a knight so that they can carry the chalice to safety and keep it from the wicked Prince Eustace.The White Rose of Scotland takes place during World W [...]

    2. I said I wasn t going to review romance, but I enjoyed this collection of novellas so much better than I have any romance I ve read in years, that it s just too bad, I m reviewing it What binds these stories together is respect for the mystical traditions of folklore and medieval verse and an understanding of energy In a day when negative energy phenomena and a disturbing love for the forces of darkness have come to dominate paranormal writing, it s a joy to find a book that opens us up to wonde [...]

    3. Chalice of Roses is actually a grouping of four novellas on a single theme, that being the quest for the holy grail Jo Beverley gives us a traditional medieval romance in The Raven and Rose It s quite enjoyable The talented Mary Jo Putney offers a guardian story set in World War II In The White Rose of Scotland, she invokes the 1940 s beautifully.Karen Harbaugh, known for quality Regency, creates a story from a series of letters between the hero and heroine It s a clever, humorous novelette enti [...]

    4. preorder I adore all four of these authors, and I m interested in Grail stuff I only am giving it a four though.Part of my problem is that all four of these stories felt well short I didn t feel that way with the two previous anthologies they ve done but I wanted out of these.I also am a little uncomfortable with the whole fated mates themes, which are certainly convenient in novellas, but which give me a twinge of discomfort That said, these stories have some really interesting wrinkles and wo [...]

    5. All four of these writers are major talents, and I ve enjoyed all the anthologies on which they ve collaborated This was no exception I was fascinated in the different ways the four employed the Grail story Mary Jo Putney s WW II setting was especially interesting because it s an unusual choice Chalice of Roses is joining Faery Magic and Dragon Lovers on my keeper shelves.

    6. Pleasant summer read Don t usually read short stories, but I found connections with each story about the adventure of saving the grail Plus I found the characters likeable, especially in the last two stories.

    7. Here is a book with 4 different authors and I loved every single story quite rare That they were all set in England didn t hurt.

    8. Four historical romance novellas, loosely connected by the theme of the Holy Grail My favorites were the very funny epistolary Regency romp by Karen Harbaugh and a wonderful version of Tam Lin by Barbara Samuel how I wish they were still writing.

    9. An anthology of 4 stories about the holy grail There s sex, but not really explicit sex As an added bonus, 2 stories feature virgin heros the heroines are virgins too Jo Beverly 2 stars Set in medieval times 1153 to be exact As much as I hate to give a JB story 2 stars,this story waswell, dull Not up to her usual standard Mary Jo Putney 2 stars.Set in 1941 at the height of WW2 From her guardian series apparently Not that I ve ever read one before, or am likely to read one Another dull offering.K [...]

    10. The Raven and The Rose by Jo Beverly I liked the premise but it turned out to be way too religious for my tastes Actually caused me to put this book down for a full week dreading the other three stories which turned out to be not as religious and mostly enjoyable.White Rose of Scotland by Mary Jo Putney Excellent story with a sweet romance during a dangerous mission to recover the Holy Grail from an evil German sorcerer during WWII.The English Rose by Karen Harbaugh I liked the concept of this s [...]

    11. Four different takes on The Holy Grail set in Britain I picked it up because the basic premise sounded interesting, and I usually enjoy reading the different stories authors create from the same basic premise.Well, I still think the premise is interesting, but the less said about the execution the betters I m especially disappointed in Beverley and Putney since I expected the most from their stories I found the characters to be flat with way too much plot crammed into the stories Everything felt [...]

    12. I saw this book in the library and I usually don t read short stories, but thought it would be fast reading I read two of the four Since I ve read books by Jo Beverley and Mary Jo Putney, I was interested in just those authors stories It was o.k Short stories have to move so fast that the ideas seem implausible, but the stories were o.k for the length and genre that it was.

    13. I read the first story only I had to put it down after I read what kind of language was in part of the story I was thoroughly apalled when I found out what the two main characters had to do to summon the Holy Grail When I read these stories had the Holy Grail in them I thought it would mean with Christian principles This story has none I was sadly mistaken.

    14. 3 1 2 stars This team of writers did a nice job I really liked Putney s story set in Nazi era Scotland and Harbaugh s in Napoleonic era England I d read Faery Magic, also by this team, and look forward to picking up Dragon Lovers at some point.

    15. Nothing earth shattering, but pleasant enough I wasn t quite expecting it to be asumracy as it is, particularly with the religious undertones in this version of the Grail myth None of the four short stories or authors particularly stood out, but they fit well together as a collection.

    16. did i actually read this book i cant remember what was it about i think i vaguely remember that it was in fact a quest for the chalice, through different stories

    17. A very nice anthology of stories based on the Holy Grail in different eras All of the submissions were above par unlike many anthologies.
