I thought this series "Willow King" heroine sounded good when I read about it. I read this book and for me it was awful. I should have read the bio first on the author as she is a romance novelist...need I say more?! The writing was simple (cant think of a better word) and I skimmed to the end just to see who the killer was -- like it mattered. I rate this in the minus zone.
