They quickly ally with one native group fighting to reclaim their nation from a traitorous regent and her cruel foreign allies. Things get a bit trope-y, with the quest for a possibly magical, definitely symbolic, McGuffin (well, two) and a new ally brings in a bit of Beastmaster (well, -mistress, here). --- N.B., there's room for [a] sequel[s] re. the other ancient treasures mentioned.
There are a few elements that I plan to look into before finalizing my verdict on the plot's plausibility, such as: how well can hawks really see at night? and did chariots really historically precede horseback riders in battle?
My personal preference doesn't lean toward war-type conflicts (i.e., large numbers manoeuvering on a battlefield) rather than the smaller personal sort where you know the names and personalities of everyone involved, but it was pretty good. I'm just as glad it didn't get too deeply descriptive and gritty.
As for the romance, it too was "not bad", though I didn't care for the "first time" in the narrative -- as I recall having commented on a previously-read VS story, too! A "since we're about to die, and even though we have to be quiet/wary, and the location is nasty..." hasty scene isn't very romantic to me. Also, I'm not quite quite clear re. the heroine's reaction back in the beginning, upon first seeing the hero again: why was she so hard to convince that he was truly alive and there, if she'd already found evidence he hadn't actually died?
Still, the story had some creative touches, and I did like the primary and secondary protagonists. Not a bad way to spend a few hours.
So. Mark and Sandy. Given their complicated and tragic past, things aren't all butterflies and roses between them at first. Honestly, this isn't surprising. I mean, being tortured, banished, and having your memories ripped away by the love of your life's grandmother isn't something that's easily gotten over. And since Sandy believed he was dead, she has some things to work her head around too.
Being transported to a distant planet and thrown in the middle of a coup tangles things up even further. Those two have a lot to figure out with their relationship all while trying to avoid an evil queen and her minions while helping those they believe are the rightful rulers.
Needless to say, they hit a speedbump or two along the way.
And we wouldn't have it any other way!

Then she throws in the unique situations, such as when Sandy comes into possession of an ancient mirror that could alter the future for the better, but she has no clue how to use it, and until they fix something, it can’t be used. (I thought this brilliant!)
While this is a long tale, it was too fabulous to put down, so I read it in one day. And as all of Veronica’s stories, it ends with a very grand HEA.
