The Pyramid Waltz book. This was a really good book. Barbara Ann Wright created an interesting fantasy world with a magic that is uniquely her own. The Pyramid Waltz was about a royal family that carries more than just a claim to the throne within their blood. I liked that the love interest for Princess Katya, Starbride, was more than just your typical damsel in distress.

To most, Princess Katya Nar Umbriel is a rogue and a layabout; she parties, she hunts and she breaks women’s hearts. But when the festival lights go down and the palace slumbers, Katya chases traitors to the crown and protects the kingdom’s greatest secret: the royal Umbriels are part Fiend. When Katya thwarts an attempt to expose the king’s monstrous side, she uncovers a plot to let the Fiends out to play.Starbride has no interest in being a courtier. Ignoring her mother’s order to snare an influential spouse, she comes to court only to study law. But a flirtatious rake of a princess proves hard to resist, and Starbride is pulled into a world of secrets that leaves little room for honesty or love, a world neither woman may survive.

I'm not what you would consider an avid lesfic fantasy reader. I usually go for the straight romance types but I wanted to give this a read and I'm really glad I did. It had everything, beautiful men and women, sword fights, demons, light romance, and a bit more. The fight scenes were well described and even though the book was slow at times, it did keep me captivated. I know the series is finished and I can't wait to read the next one.

This is the story of two charming young women with vastly different backgrounds and personalities falling in love while their whole world tries to crash down around them. The excitement of discovery and anticipation both within their relationship and the action-driven main plot give the whole story a sense of urgency and danger that will keep you from putting the book down.

The love scenes are tantalizing, yet tastefully written. This is lesbian romance your straight parents can read... if they're a bit liberal. The characters flirt and tease each other - and the reader - but the resolution is so sweet it will warm your heart (and perhaps some other bits as well).

But, this is so much more than a romance novel, this book kicks right off with an exciting fight scene written so masterfully that you will raise a sweat. And the hits just keep on coming throughout the book. This book is equal parts romance and epic fantasy action set in an immersive fantasy world. The magic is uniquely fresh while being consistent and believable.

To top it off, the whole book is laced with a subtle brand of witty comedy that will raise a chuckle on every page. The book is by no means a comedy, but the comedic elements really bring the characters out and makes them real people. It keeps the serious, and sometimes dark, themes of the story feeling light as the characters deal with it like we all would.

This is a book you'll read again to go back to hang out with your old friends Katya, Starbride and the whole Order of Vestra. You will want to go back and read again as their love grows, knowing what is coming. I hope we see more books about Katya, Starbride and this new fantasy world.

This was a great read, not normally my cup of tea but the author did a super job pulling me into the political intrigue of the secret order protecting the secrets of the Crown, and especially the relationship between the leading characters. The way she wove the buildup of their love and the sexual tension was masterful.

Chapters alternated between their viewpoints which gave a heightened visibility into how each of them interpreted the others words and actions, as well as improving the tension.

The setting was rich, original and superbly described. The author excelled at showing the difference between Starbride's people and Katya's Kingdom.
The plot unraveled slowly but steadily and I never felt lost, although the foreshadowing fell flat in a couple of places. The final conflict was unexpected and a little muddled in places, especially as the author did such a great job previously in the book. Neither of these points stopped this being a great book.

The Pyramid Waltz was my first read by Barbara Ann Wright, but it won't be my last. Amazon blurb listed the book as a fantasy novel with a lesbian heroine. I was a little...iffy. I love fantasy and tough girls rock...but I was a meh as to how the "story" was going to be written. I'm being honest, here. I thought maybe it was going to be soft porn, or worse a goofy portrayal of lesbianism angst. I was way off on both accounts. The Pyramid Waltz is a well written love story of a young woman who is protecting her family by accepting an ancient evil into her soul. The book is filled with fights, intrigue and passion. Let's get graphic, shall we? Barbra Ann Wright kept her characters erotic with out the euphemisms, tawdry trysts were tantamount but they weren't trashy. I'd recommend this book to anyone who likes a good love story with a kick ass heroine who just happens to clean up well.

I read many genres of books, but fantasy has been and always will be my favourite. I've lost countless hours to Jordan, Tolkien, Goodkind, Eddings, Erikson and others. So on that basis, I was very surprised by this book. It managed to mostly combine romance and fantasy smoothly, with only a few bumps here and there. The magic system of using pyramids is something definitely new, almost like allomancy in Brandon Sanderson's Mistborn saga. Although this novel doesn't go into major depth about the pyramids etc, I'm hoping that the sequel(s) will do so. Done right, this is a new fantasy world with a lot of potential in it.

The main characters, Katya and Starbride, make a wonderful pair. It's very refreshing to see lesbians in the lead, yet without the usual "it was destiny!" type of feel. They meet, become friends and then fall in love, just like normal people do, and not the fairly usual unrealistic type of romance in fantasy novels. It's also exceptionally refreshing to see that their romance can not only bloom, but be encouraged by all their friends and Katya's family. Although it seems almost trivial, a world where love is expressed as is, regardless of gender, is an achievement. About the only other novels I've read that have the same sort of openness is the Kushiel series, but that's an entirely different type of world. For what it's worth, the romance is romantic and suggestive, yet without being over the top steamy and descriptive. I think it's the right balance for the world that has been created here. I don't think it would be harmful if there was a little more heat and suggestion, but it should never reach the level where it ruins the story.

On an individual level, all the characters we interact with are pretty well fleshed out. Katya is rather funny, and in a way reminds me of Mat of Wheel of Time, or Leliana of Dragon Age, back in her earlier bardic days. Heart of gold and on the side of good, but not above throwing off some awesome snarky comments. Starbride is one of those cheerful bubbly people who always seem to be around. Reminds me quite a bit of the younger Willow in Buffy to be honest. Brutal, Maia, Crowe and the others are also interesting characters, with many stories untold I hope. A special note must be made of Katya's dad, who one could say is almost slightly mad-cap.

About the only down points I can think of is that the story is a bit short (probably due to my love of fantasy novels that run to 700+ pages,) the ending is a bit rushed, and that the world needs more fleshing out. Hopefully these can be done in the sequel, and take a great story to even higher heights. I recommend this to any fantasy fan who is looking for something new and interesting, spiced with an original and lovely romance. Definitely something to keep an eye on for the future. I know I'll be buying the follow up next year for sure. I believe it is expected in May sometime.
