(Slight Spoilers ahead)
That being said, this novel covers A LOT of ground from battlefields to the gothic castle of a deranged king to the courtly proprieties (and no-less gothic royal cemeteries) of another royal palace and its hunting lodge to the bustling city that surrounds it. We follow the lives of Illya, a quiet, "fey" boy who grew up in the forest backwaters of the kingdom of Aldania under the thumb of his oppressive and high-minded grandfather, father, cousins and brothers who believe Illya to be too much of an outsider--being "fey" in their minds and also being the second son of a second son, oh and because he can see ghosts! He joins the military under the dashing Prince Knight (and heir to the kingdom), Ashe, as a forest scout and archer and manages to be caught by the eye of the selfish and arrogant prince.Read more ›
It’s impossible not to fall in love with Illya. Of course Ashe didn’t stand a chance – Illya is so different from everyone else. He’s genuine, kind, naïve in his sincerity. He never lies, never hurts anyone and he expects the same from other people, but unfortunately, the reality is harsher. I loved Illya’s connection with the forest, with the nature, I loved how he preferred to avoid people, how long it took him to open up to Ashe and willingly let him touch him. His gift is fascinating as well, I thoroughly enjoyed every ghost’s story, Rina’s especially. Illya’s compassion and fear of them was palpable.
Ashe was amazing. The strong, wise, cunning Prince who prefers honesty to court’s intrigues. I was captivated with the length he went to to make Illya trust him and love him. He was devoted and loyal - even refused to sleep with his usual favorites when Illya kept on turning him down. That’s admirable. I respected Ashe almost from the beginning, but near the end I was hopelessly and completely in love with him.
All secondary characters were remarkable. Lady Lurene, Rina, even Davad in his viciousness and pettiness. I wasn’t bored, not for a minute, every plot development captured my interest and didn’t let me rest until I read the entire book. I’ll never forget it, nor I’ll forget its characters.
Beautiful book.Read more ›
There's a war. How does it end? (Or really, how it continues, because we are left at an impasse.)
The assassins. Who sent them? (The obvious answer is the war enemy, but then it is specifically said that it's not their modus operandi.)
The madness. Does it resolve itself?
The rift within the court. What happens next?
And then there is Illya's powers, his family and a whole lot more problems I won't spoiler for you, but they are equally begging for answers.
So my whole point is IT NEEDS A SEQUEL.
As it is, my advice is read it if you couldn't care less of the action, but are greatly interested in the characters themselves (warning: much less sex scenes than Bloodraven!), however if all you care about is "what happens next?", then wait for the author to write a sequel.

We want the sequel and the ending! Thanks! Good job otherwise! Just finish it for God's sake!Published 10 months ago by Amazon Customer
Aside from the annoying story line of the ghosts, this was a good book. I'm not surprised that it was since PL Nunn has a habit of hitting it out of the park. Read morePublished 19 months ago by nubian_princesa
