A group of older friends I had when I was 16 introduced me to M.M. Kaye. The first book of hers I read was Shadow of the Moon. Due to school commitments I think it took me almost a week and I hated every moment I wasn't with this book.

From the very beginning this book enchanted me. It is filled with the very essence of India and its people. For years Alex was the epitome of everything that was perfect in a man- in some ways he still is. He does, at any rate, remain one of my all time favorites heroes.

Winter is such a strong character, but so human. What could've been a one dimensional character evolved into, to me, an icon. No matter how many times I read this story I can not help but feel everything she does. I know what is going to happen and yet am still on the edge of my seat.

This book is out of print, but you can find copies of it on amazon and ebay. If you enjoy epic romances this is so the book for you! Action, romance, exotic locales, murder and has it all. I also recommend Far Pavilions as a good follow up.
