"...The author writes a novel that romance readers will cherish...While I admired Kymora’s compassion and courage (she is no push over), Varian was the true star of this book. He must make many difficult decisions when those he cares for revolt and he must brutally squash the rebellion to keep the human alliance. These tough choices deeply affect him yet he forges on for the good of his people.You can read the full review here (scroll down).
As Varian struggles against his dark demon side and the passion he feels for Kymora, the reader can feel his anguish. He is a noble man who suppresses/denies his needs for others. And when the perceptive Kymora sees the good in him and loves him even when he does not believe he deserves it this emotionally charged book was poignant and addicting.
A battle scarred, noble hero and a valiant heroine caught in a war of deep prejudice make for a powerfully affecting read."
