This book could have been really good, but fell short of that for me because of a few glaring mistakes, and just not enough background. Too many things that are really important to the storyline, are not only unexplained, but ignored. I won't give any spoilers. It's a good premise for a story,and it does have several redeeming features. The characters, other than the heroine, were interesting and it's a shame the author didn't go into more detail about who and what some of them were.
The main complaint I have about the story is that the heroine of the piece is ridiculously wishy/washy. One minute she is insecure, the next, full of confidence, for no apparent reason. She is "in love" with someone, then ready to give him up to fulfill her destiny, (with no real turmoil to speak of); again, without enough reason, or anything happening to explain this abrupt change of heart.
There are also too many instances where the transition between points of view is abrupt, and sometimes makes no sense to the story, (again, not enough info.)
One of my pet peeves in a story is tying up all the loose ends in a neat little package, without enough information to let the reader understand how, exactly we ended up, "Happy ever after".
The bottom line is that there were so many holes in this story, it sunk, (at least for me).
I gave it a 3* rating for it's potential. I hope the author will go back someday and write the Whole story. That would be well worth reading!
