SPOILERS TO FOLLOW - VAGUE BUT SPOILERS NEVERTHELESS.
And while I tried hard not to let this part influence my rating much, I am not a machine and all my reviews have emotional component. I started liking Acksley, I ended up hating him. There is a reason why the word "traitor" smells bad in both fiction and reality. Obviously in reality it is much more complex and traitor for one side is often hero for another, but truly it is much easier in fiction. It is one thing when Acksley was trying to do a good deed and tried to make the best out of the situation. I felt though that he went above and beyond in betraying his country to help Morcians win (yes, I know he supposedly wanted to stop the war - it felt that he was helping Morcians win).
Others have summarized this better than I could, but I will mention that there is NO sexual activity between the main characters until the epilogue. I found it very odd that they barely touch each other and are aware if the other is standing too closely, but no mention of their feelings until the reader is 95% or more through the book. The entire epilogue (which takes place 6 months after the end of the main story), however, is just a sex scene. It just seems odd -- almost like the editor said, "There needs to be a sex scene" and the author didn't want to do it, but did force herself to do it at the end. Just odd.
I like how the characters develop and change. How they accept and overcome differences, prejudices and customs.
I believe I have read this book at least 10 times but never got bored.
I highly recommend it for anyone who would like to see how a relationship develops amid war, treachery, and intrigue in a well developed fantasy environment.
The whole plotline is a total cliche, which is not a bad thing per se. The way it was handled, was. Two dimensional characters, with whom I felt no connection, emotions out of place.
A waste of my money and time.
To me a MUST READ.
Ackley was a bodyguard to a prince before he was banished and unwillingly has become bound to another. I liked Ackley, how he didn't behave differently just because he was with a prince and talked back. He didn't just roll over or let the prince do as he pleases. Actually the mentioned prince wasn't bad either, he was not a selfish prat and actually did realise his feelings for Ackley before it was too late.
The plots against them, there quite interesting and I really enjoyed the mystery of discovering the traitor. Here also lies my only complaint or a reason for a sequel: A traitor was a big deal and he made a lot of things happen, I find it a bit unbelievable, that it was just this one person and that there were not more people involved. The matter was dropped and not mentioned again and considering how long it took them to find the one who murdered a king, well the matter was solved too easy in the end.
Otherwise I loved this book; it had great characters, an interesting plot and some pretty good writing.
