You can tell this is an early one......!

Well, as a Johanna Lindsey addict, I carried on with this book even though my greater instincts were telling me not to waste my time. I'm glad I did. The writing in the first third of the book was poor and the characters didn't seem to be too believable (Christina is extremely annoying). However, it would appear that JL got going and settled into this more as the story progressed and it actually got quite gripping towards the end. Not her usual standard, but this book was written 20 odd years ago. She's gotten a lot better since this book. If you're new to JL's books, don't pick this one as you might not read another. 'Silver Angel' is on the same lines as this and is much better. Or try one of her wonderful Malory books; they're great, really addictive.
