I liked the relationship between Amaranthe and Sicarius. How they worked together to achieve essentially the same goal and how they kept the members of their team together.
I also liked the plot and it's many twists even if they were a bit predictable.
What I didn't like was how easily Amaranthe convinced Sicarius to work with her. And how about how quickly she found the perfect members for her team. It just didn't seem realistic. But other than that it was still a great read.
