Graustark The Story Of A Love Behind A Throne Review º 109 Ld be the scene of adventurous romances set in imaginary countries McCutcheon's Graustark no doubt borders Hope's Ruritania and Avram Davidson's recent Scythia Pannonia Transbalkania It was a place where an American adventurer could find himself or herself adrift. Even if it was a bit predictable it was certainly a fun uick read The prose is mostly unremarkable and maybe a little florid but the way the characters talk left me wishing I lived in a time where people wouldn t look at you strangely for talking that way I could usually guess which way the plot was going to twist but somehow the audacity with which the characters acted still took my breath away I read it in a day and it left me feeling ten feet tall Definitely worth it
