This is a Reprint of the Novel "Lyrica".
The main character's name has been changed and the ending has been added too changing it slightly.
But I don't understand Why It was done like this as
the original was really Perfect and I found what was added to this Version SOURED the experience.
If you have the choice to buy one or the other...Go with the original "Lyrica"

I enjoyed this book, although it is not this author's best. The opening did not pull me in, the character's were one dimensional, there were plot flaws and numerous editing mistakes, and the ending was fair. Still, overall I enjoyed the read.

I like the twist of reading a book from the supposed "villain's" viewpoint. Sophia was likeable, albeit, evil. I found the twist interesting that even those who new who she was, still decided to be with her. Overall a good read with some neat historical treats in the middle.

I found the novel face-paced and quite engaging, and I thoroughly enjoyed the story. A very worthwhile read!
