Welcome to reading_dunnett . This is a community specifically for first-time readers of the Lymond Chronicles by Dorothy Dunnett (and perhaps later, The House of Niccolo too). New readers can discuss, ask questions, share joys (and perhaps frustrations) without fear of spoilers. Of course, veteran readers are welcome too, but discussions must not contain spoilers! (Or else a very obvious spoiler warning must be posted.) This is a safe haven from spoilers. On the other hand, another useful group is our affiliate community lymond where most of the members have already read the Lymond Chronicles as well as the House of Niccolo books (and where spoilers roam free).
