it was amazing
Read from December 03, 2011 to March 12, 2012

I've seen a fair amount of moaning about this 1/3 of an overall 2/3 not stacking up to the first trilogy and I have to disagree with it all. There are not many times I wish to be a man (bar waiting for the toilets at a concert) but reading this made me pine for a codpiece and facial hair. Imriel is a bad egg, readers of this series will know why but he's cut from very prestigious cloth and his fine breeding makes for a spectacular young man.

The pace is steadier, we've not got so much intrigue or treachery, deceit and murder but the seeds are sown for a fantastic story I'd be a fool to miss.

Jacqueline is becoming one of my favourite authors of all time - her skill is outstanding. I will be reading on.

Kay Oh that's very interesting. I haven't taken to Imriel as much as Phedre, so I didn't venture past the third book. After your status update, though, I'm curious.

Leyoh It's definitely a different book to #3. Not so intense or tangled but still a good quality piece. It's nice to have a male lead too.

Leyoh Jacqueline's skill for a heavily layered story is amazing and I can't rest between books as I thought I would. Full review to come.
