I'm not a big fan of fantasy, and when I started this one, I was nervous that I would struggle through it. Once past the first two chapters, however, the book drew me in.

The hero is an army officer struggling with his self doubt, the heroine young and inexperienced, sent to ferret out a spy. Their obstacles, including the arranged marriage, are believable, and the relationship develops at a very realistic pace.
