Having said that, while I tend to avoid anything remotely smelling of being series-ish, this book was actually well written and worth getting. The characters are well developed and the plot is interestingly different.
I debated giving this three stars because it does leave things hanging, but in the end decided that it's quality made it worth that fourth star.
It tries a little too hard and there is no reasonable explanation for a few of the things she does. I didn't like that she ended up having to give herself to a mentally challenged man just to preserve the kingdom. It was to me, abhorrent.
Anyway, when the focus shifts to her father and her going to a "shindig" with the royals, where her father says Johanna has one dance with the heir to the throne - the prince. He's been out of sight for quite some time, and rumors abound that the royal family is hiding some sort of secret about him. Johanna, and the rest of the people attending, find out exactly what that is, and it's squirm-inducing to say the least.
The story picks up even more steam (in more ways than one ;-)) after the party breaks up - Johanna meets up with a mysterious stranger from a foreign land. That's the best about Johanna's day...because she's soon on the run for her life.
I really started to feel for Johanna when she went on the run, because she had to deal with devastation wherever she went, and it took a toll on her. She's also looked at as the leader of her little ragtag group (3 other people, including a strange friend, Loesie, who can only make sounds instead of regular words), something that wears on her as well. It was all so sad, yet Johanna managed to stay strong, which I really admired.
There's sort of a twist near the end of this book which had me chuckling which helped to relieve some of the sadness that came just before. Of course, it ended in a way that leads into the next book, though you'll have to read this one to understand what I'm talking about. :-)
So read the sample, and know that Johanna grows beyond any angry/angsty stuff she shows at the beginning, and even realizes by the end of the book how immature she really was early on in the book.
I definitely am getting the next book in the series because I *have* to know what happens next (and fortunately the next book is already out)!

Well. I must admit to not having any great expectations when I opened this up to have a read. In truth, I thought I would lose interest fast.Read more
