About the Author
Michelle Magly is a lesbian writer living in Alaska with her loving partner. She has discovered that the frozen tundra makes excellent inspiration. Michelle currently has one short story, "Heart," featured in the 2012 Understory anthology from the University of Alaska, Anchorage. She also released her first novel, All the Pretty Things, in 2013 as a collaborative effort with Rae D Magdon. In 2014, again in collaboration with Rae, Dark Horizons was published. When not writing, Michelle hikes, snowboards, skis, and plays a lot of video games. Aside from her partner, Michelle shares her life with her loving cat.

As a Fantasy I love the political situation and world, all the classic elements, an princess hidden away, a corrupt council, banned dragons and a truly evil empire. Assassins and heroes abound. Others lands and peoples are just barely touched on, but gave me the feeling that Magly knows full well the rest of her world and is only teasing us with its depth and richness.
The Readers and their magic are strong and used well to support the story rather than dominating it. Vital to the story, but not of itself the story.
The Dragons that prove all too human. The Humans that prove to be more monstrous than any beast.
As a romance the pains of duty versus personal joy are clearly and excellently laid out. Senri is by duty a warrior first and a lover second. Alina knows clearly she might one day have to order her love to her death for the sake of her country, and even if not she may well be subject to political marriages and a need for heirs for the country she holds so dear. Both subject to prior vows that may override any vows of love.
I felt joy at their coming together, but trepidation at the coming pains that may prevent their future happiness Yes, I actually thought of the political and social issues after putting the book down.
There are few novels I read lately that I feel could be best served by being longer, much longer. There was so much about the world hinted at, a taste given, some I am sure is intended for future books, but damn it I want it NOW! :)
I eagerly await the further novels I am sure are coming. Bravo!
I'm glad Senri and Alina developed as friends first. Made for a more believable romance later on. In a way Alina reminds me a bit of Mua'dib. Mainly due to the fact maybe sometimes being able to see one future limits one's abilities to alter it, escape or accept it. Hope she doesn't somehow share his fate. We shall see in the next book.
Ultimately all I can really say is that I will not hesitate to get any subsequent books in the series.
