Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of my favourite books ever I love this book so much. It's one of my favourites and I re-read it all the time. It's a standalone novel. If you like fantasy with a bit of romance, and courtly life, you will like this book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from not bad, not her best Reading a Sharon Shinn novel is like peeling leaves off of cabbage; there's many different layers, and the deeper you go into the novel, the smaller and sweeter they are. This book is superficially the coming-of-age of a young girl seeing a kingdom from both her rural village-witch point of view, and that of her father's priveldged noble family. Deeper into this, we see the theme of discrimination - a race of people hunted to be slaves for the humans. Deeper still, recognise the same objectification and roles placed on these slaves placed on the shoulders of Cory's older sister, and even Cory herself. This is a definite novel to make you think on the nature of societies.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from * * * * * Sharon Shinn is by far one of my most favorite authors. In this book, she has done a great job in weaving a tale of mystery, romance, suspense and adventure and has created yet another can't-seem-to-put-down book! This book was throughly satisfyint to read and I liked the main character Corie. She may seem a little naive sometimes but overall, she was a funny, playful character. Pick up this book and let yourself be carried away into a wonderful tale!
