(view spoiler)[The romance could have been wonderful except there was just too much anger with both the hero and the heroine. There were lots of petty misunderstandings. I found the heroine's naivety and confusion boring after a while; it made it hard to like her. The story could have had about 50-75 pages cut out. And I am still not sure why Alaex and Iliani loved each other. (hide spoiler)]
