Really 2.5 stars

I have very mixed feelings about this work. It wasn't nearly long enough to feel fleshed out. However, the subject is never and dear to my heart.

Simply great.

Leijon sketched a world and gave it life.
From alpha to omega it was worthy of setting, sentiment and honor.
The start and end, poetry.

I liked the premise and the setting was gorgeous but the main characters lacked that extra spark of something I like to see in a May/December romance. It did make me laugh in several places and the story kept me engaged enough that I am glad I read it.

OK so fast and loose with historical accuracy and an honorable if not happy story line, that said the romance in this story was at times very sweet and the characters were personable and relatable. A little slow to start but as the story unfolded it also became more engaging and despite the warnings I have put forth I found it to be an interesting and engaging read that I would recommend!
