it was amazing

Hawksong may look like a short book, but there is certainly nothing simple about it. I liked it best out of the series, but the others still captured my attention.

One hawk-shapeshifter, heiress to an avian race. One cobra-shapeshifter, prince of the serpents. One cool and aloof, the other sensual and sensitive. Both of them sick of the endless war between their people. Both willing to do anything to end it...even when it means becoming pair-bonded with each other.

Danica and Zane's emotional and political journey never fails to awe and move me. The lessons about love, emotion, race, and stereotype are there, but they are woven intricately into the characters and story. You travel right along with them, find yourself falling in love with both of them, and at the end, you leave with an enduring sense of inspiration and hope. Incredible fantasy, especially when you consider Atwater-Rhodes wrote it as a teen!
