This book really captured and held my interest. It's a tale of two (ultimately) lovers who value each other more for what's on the inside than what's on the outside. It's very refreshing. There's a set up at the end for more books and I'm eager to read them when they come out.

I know why I waited so long to read this book despite being REALLY keen to know what it is about (I resisted Grace Draven's blog entries valiantly). Because as soon as I had started I was already at the end - at least it felt like it. One wonderful rushed through read later, I'm only left with re-reads of this and all her other works (too few yet).
This book is reading pleasure incarnate.

My friend, Karin, really loved this book and couldn't stop talking about it, so of course I was very curieus about this book. And just like my friend, Karin, I really loved it!! It was a while since I read this sort of book. But I loved every moment of it.

Brishen, a Kai prince most marry a Gauri noblewomen to seal a treat between both races. Ildiko always knew that it was her fate to marry for politics. Luckily for both, there's an instant understanding between them. Althought they look different like night and day, both want this marriage to work. So they decided to be honest with each other. And that's what made me love this book so very much. The relationship between them was so wonderful and lovely. The writer really takes her times to let the relationship grow between Brishen and Ildiko. What is more wonderful then two lonely people finding love and understanding with each other?

I can't wait to read the next book!
