** spoiler alert ** The library I borrowed it from has it in YA, but my library has it in Juvenile. In truth, I didn't find anything in it that would push it over into YA. Even the scenes with Francisco didn't really go anywhere, despite a hallucination of marriage and a marriage bed nothing happens... I would have preferred a little more romance. Something with Maeve going after Francisco after saving her mother and sister would have been nice. Some closure over the tundra girls, the Spaniards and Danu would also have been appreciated. It was a nice story and a fairly quick read, but even though I enjoyed it, it wasn't really what I wanted to read.
