I received this book for free through goodreads first reads program. Firstly, thank you to Prue for sending me her book all the way from Australia at great expense.
I enjoyed this novel. I loved the settings and rich details. I did find myself wanting a map of the areas described in the novel and did some googling to help visualize them. Based on the description on the back of the book I thought more of the novel would be dedicated to the negotiations between the two leaders, but this part was glossed over in the first 30 pages. Which isn't to say that I didn't enjoy the rest of the book, just that I was surprised. Looking forward to the sequel and the continuation of their love story and further development of their characters.
