It's been a while since I've read a book this bad, one that made me so angry at how bad it was written but yet I still managed to finish every word of it.

Magnus is reminiscent of Piers Montgomery in Tanya Anne Crosby's Lyon's Gift. Multifaceted complex men. Reena sees the world with her artist's eye.
