I'm currently reading Midori Snyder's Queens Quartet Trilogy. It's not deep or brilliant, but it's quite competent, with an interesting plot, engaging characters with names I can believe they'd have, and some interesting narrative choices. I just finished the second book, which sometimes gets a little too modern for my tastes in terms of discussing relationships and gender relations.

The blurbs are a bit off-kilter. The first one is actually somewhat inaccurate as far as the first book goes, and a bit of a spoiler as far as the trilogy goes. The second isn't inaccurate, but is the same bit of a spoiler. That's not, I think, a huge problem, but it is annoying, since the blurbs are good enough that I find it hard to believe that they couldn't have been improved fairly easily.
