anybody want to talk about Niccolo?

As I mentioned before, I’m (yet again) re-reading Dunnett’s House of Niccolo series. I’ve come to this place where I always falter because I can’t get over the feeling that Dunnett may have committed the ultimate sin: forcing a character to do something… unfounded…. (and awful) in order to turn the plot in a particular direction. If you’ve read the series and would like to talk about this, please let me know by email and we can go over to the forum and set up a discussion space. This is one of those times I wish I knew of a bookgroup that would want to read the stuff I like.
