Review by: Ariana H on Jan. 16, 2014 :
This is my favorite of Andrea's so far.

Following the restoration of the Rathen throne, Gentian returns to Darest after spending more than a decade in self-imposed exile. She knows that breaking the oath she made never to return will have consequences. Just as she knows that every dawn she spends in Darest she will wake in utter terror, knowing herself to be on the brink of destruction. Gentian is willing to suffer to live in the homeland that she loves.

She is quickly bound up with a major character from the last book, Aristide Coeurveur, and the politics of Darest. The heirs of a few neighboring kingdoms have disappeared on Darest's borders, creating a political nightmare for Darest. Aspen, also from Champion of the Rose, rounds out the Darest delegation and brings a flirty POV that contrasts Gentian well.

Gentian's inner struggles and the external conflict, as well as her understated romance, all compliment and interweave well. Bones of the Fair also reveals a few of Darest's secrets and creates new questions about the kingdoms future. It will be interesting to see what the next book brings.
