Absorbing right from the very beginning, I ended up reading the entire book in one sitting. Saintcrow turns the traditional 'elvish' model on it's head to give you a completely different glimpse of the genre. The heroine of the book is strong with an underlying vulnerability that makes her more accessable to the reader. This book is not a stand alone story, things heat up just as it ends leaving you desperate for the next installment. It's primary focus is that of the heroine discovering herself and her past which appears to have very different versions depending on who you ask. This book lays the groundwork for the main story arc without leaving you feeling shortchanged. I would definately recommend this to anyone who loves fantasy or strong female lead characters.
