My youngest sister got through theses book much faster than I did. After she finished the second book, she begged me to buy her the last book. So, I bought her the third book, using her as my excuse to buy the book I really wanted to read.
To be honest, the prolog at threw me at first. I was ready to get right back to the characters I loved but I was being taken back in time and then, I was being introduced to a whole new cast. With that said, it didn't take me long to get into the new story.
One of the things I love about Nicole's style is the weaving of the threads of the story. From the very beginning you are following two or more stories that seem to have no relation but in the end are pulled together to give you a complete story.
Falconer and his interaction with Lady Meredith's youngest daughter was by far my favorite part of the book. Who can resist a sweet little girl melting the heart of a warrior? It was so sweet to read.
As with her other books, there is lots of adventure. Since I love adventure books, this was perfect. The story keeps you turning pages until the very last one.
I highly recommend this whole series and I can't wait for Nicole's next book.
