All I can say is "wow". There aren't many words to describe a novel of this nature; this length and depth and breadth and convoluted plot details so filled with characters both striking and mundane that evolves with such unpredictability and sharpness.

You, P.L. Nunn are a genius.

I loved the first book I read by this author, Bloodraven, which was passionate and had a plot and yet so dark as to be nearly depressing. Somehow this book was both better and worse than that one. There wasn't a clear aim to the plot line, a point in the distant horizon that the characters were working towards (well, other than their own happiness) and I felt like a lot of possible thread-lines were unfortunately dropped (say, the whole Gunthar attacking plot) but overall it really was a much happier and smoother story to read through.

I love Nunn's writing style. It's so clear and easy to follow. Yet filled with enough details to let us really feel what is going on around the characters. I adore his character development the most, though, I believe. He really has a way of making you admire and yet perhaps even despise a little one of his main characters (or perhaps even both).

I had a terribly lovely time reading this book, and it may have taken me almost two weeks, but that was mostly due to being in midterm session right now.

I really cannot believe that I have finished. It was an incredible journey. I really did not want the story to be complete! And somehow, I know that Ashe and Illya will continue to live on. Happily ever after.
