A new fantasy novel from writer Sarah Zettel that returns to Isvalta, a world from an earlier trilogy of hers. However this does stand all on it's own and you can read it without having read those.

It runs for 434 pages and twenty six chapters, and it's the story of Natharie. Princess of the country of Sindhu. No longer a teenager and just having finished a ceremony which celebrates that fact, her peace is shattered when a neighbouring country demands rewards promised from an old treaty. Which require one of the Sinhdu royals to go and live when them. To prevent it being her younger sister, Natharie volunteers.

She has to come to grips with the new country in which she finds herself. And a burgeoning attraction between herself and native prince Samudra.

But with intrigue and plotting in both countries that threaten war, can the two of them get together and survive? Or is their relationship as doomed as their countries might be?

There's nothing wrong with a predictable romance so long as the characters are compelling enough to make you like them. And these two certainly are. And there's a rich feel to the countries seen here that comes over an interesting mixture of places from the middle east to asia. But this does falter a little after a promising opening sixty pages because the focus shifts away from Natharie to other characters. As a whole it's just not quite as compelling when she's not on screen.

So not a bad bit of writing all in all, but ultimately not the most memorable.

Probably helps to have read the original Isavalta trilogy, but not essential.
