Ugh. This book is so trite and clichéd as to be nearly unreadable. The nerveless bit of fluff who ranks as the heroine is a horrid mixture of syrupy sweetness and heavy-handed examples of sudden and unexpected displays of magical ability the likes of which her world has never before seen. The king of the Fey claims her as his soul-bonded mate immediately after first seeing her, the beautiful female characters in this book hate her, and her childhood bully is repeatedly thwarted in his attempts to rape her.

Oh, no. This plot is not contrived at all.

After the heroine bored me silly, I did spend a bit of time flipping through the book in search of interesting sex scenes with the faint hope that they might slightly redeem this as a romance novel. There were none. I advise you all to skip this book entirely.

Urhomwen I could not agree more. I'm at the point where the fae 'warriors' are singing and unwrapping wedding gifts. Ridiculous.
