To top it all off, a lovely person called Jan reviewed it for their Not Your Ordinary Book Banter blog AND ordered a copy of both VENGEANCE BORN and ALLIANCE FORGED for the library!!!
I gave a hoo-rah when I read this snippet in the review.
I came across this author while downloading a bunch of samples to my eReader. For the record, I have decided that eReader samples are a marvelous thing. I usually get my first twenty-five pages from a sample, and from there, if the author has intrigued me, I borrow it from the library. Or, if I just can't wait one more day---I buy the book!Then I let loose a squee, for this comment!
I bought this book.
For those of you who like books by Nalini Singh, I would recommend you try this author.And I was grinning like a loon with these closing thoughts.
With that said, there was depth to this story, especially concerning racial prejudice. I was engrossed by the fantasy world Griffin created. She formed a believable war between two races fueled by ignorance and prejudices on both sides. It was an enjoyable read, and in many ways thought provoking---with a happy ending, of course!You can read the review in its entirety here.
Alliance Forged is the next book in this series. I have ordered both books for the library's collection.
