I like this book more than I thought I would. It's the sort of book I tend to like, though, you know with royalty types and romance and adventure and a fairy tale-ish feel. Though, this book has a darker feel than Shannon Hale's books (to give you a point of comparison).

The main character, Shadow, is the personal companion/bodyguard of the Queen. She is the only one who stays with the queen all the time--and everyone's paranoid about the Queen because it's been foretold that she'll be killed before her 16th birthday. All Shadow wants to do is to be free. Her moment comes when the palace is set in disarray, except instead of being free she somehow winds up in the care of Sir Kenway (a young and dashing, though a wee bit stuck up, knight).

There is a sort of strange Mother Earth type religion (I guess it's not all that strange, I mean, you've heard of things like that before) but it didn't get in the way of the story very much at all, like I expected it to.
