Blog Tour and Giveaway: The Tale of Mally Biddle

The Tale of Mally Biddle by M.L. LeGette

When Mally Biddle agreed to spy upon the King of Lenzar and his overbearing knights she knew she was heading into danger. She didn't know she'd find a family unlike any other.

Posing as a servant in Bosc Castle, Mally serves tea and tends fires for the most dangerous men in the kingdom. Her goal is to learn the truth of what happened sixteen years ago, when the infant princess met her death ... a death that is surrounded by more questions than answers.

Along her search for the truth, Mally meets the energized Lita Stump, the strict and matriarchal Meriyal Boyd, and the opinionated Archibald Diggleby. Then of course there are the knights: Leon Gibbs who is slicker than a greased hog, Adrian Bayard, hot tempered and violent, and the worst of the lot: Sir Illius Molick, Captain of the Knights. And then there is Maud, a mysterious woman who just might know everything...

"To say I loved this book is an understatement. Mally is a wonderful character and she encounters so many quirky folks on her assignment. Very well written and engaging story! And an added bonus of a love triangle! I enjoyed it from beginning to end!! I will definitely be looking for more from this author!"

Author Melissa LeGette
Melissa LeGette lives in Georgia where she helps run a family farm, so her nails are a fright. The Tale of Mally Biddle is her second novel.

My Thoughts:

This was a very fun, quick, and enjoyable read. Mally is a great character. It was a bit mild for my tastes, but that doesn't necessarily mean that it's a bad book. There is action, there is adventure, and there is a spunky, smart, yet sweet heroine. I think this would definitely be a great read for a younger reader! There's not much in the way of grown up things, even the deaths and such are kind of tame or only mentioned never showed. Again, not a bad thing..I just like my castles and knights a bit more slashy swoony..

Now do not get me wrong here! The writing was very good! It is a solid story if clean fiction/fantasy is what you like! If you are looking for a headstrong, independent female main character, then Mally is your girl. I would highly recommend this to a young person just starting to branch out into fantasy type of fiction!

All in all I wasn't disappointed. I just am used to a bit more mature action. I did very much enjoy it, even in spite of the lack of heavy bosoms and glistening man chests..
