It was good - definitely packed with lovable characters and a solid dose of intrigue. Believe it or not, I think i actually preferred The Truth-Teller's Tale; that wasn't as quick a read and it seemed less...I don't know...odd...? The Safe-Keeper's Secret just seemed a little disjointed in comparison. And I was kind of confused as to whether Reed was actually falling in love with Fiona by the end of the story. But I still enjoyed it. I'll probably continue checking out Sharon Shinn's works. I love the way she's constantly playing around with characters' identities and throwing in unexpected twists. Surprisingly action-packed, even though their heroines never leave their hometowns, and certainly absorbing. This was good, but I do like the second book better.
