Aside from what I mentioned above, there's another excellent feature to these stories—the strong heroines. Not one of them wants to be a damsel in distress. This heroine Anice is something special. Others have been trying to hold her down for most of her life by telling her that she's ugly and incorrigible. But she can't be held down, she has too much spirit. Unfortunately she lives in the medieval period when women weren't permitted much independence. Finding her purpose at Stonehaven was a continuing theme in the story, and I really felt bad for her. She's unconventionally talented and I imagined so many wonderful non-traditional ways for her to evolve. I hope I get to see where Anice goes from here in book 3.
Our hero Gregor can be exasperating. He's a brave and well-intentioned man, if not a bit clueless about how to handle Anice. In his defense Gregor had his hands full trying to protect his clan and fight along side William Wallace for Scotland's freedom. But he keeps Anice dangling from a string for practically the entire book while there's another man at Stonehaven who treats her like gold and would love to have her for his own. It's quite frustrating.
The first 30% of this book, as they make their way back to Stonehaven, sets the tone for Gregor and Anice's relationship, and this foundation is truly delightful. Another of my favorite parts of the story is when Anice is at Inesfree. All of the characters from book 1 are featured generously and move the story forward, in addition to bringing out the best in Anice. There are other significant scenes as well, but what is missing is a resolution scene between the antagonist and Gregor. That was unfortunate.
Ultimately there is an HEA of course. While there were a few things in this story that were a bit unsatisfying to me, I suspect and hope that we will hear more from these characters in upcoming books. This story is full of wit, a wide range of emotions, and a large cast of lovable characters, but not so large that you'll get mixed up about who is who. These books can be read as standalones, but with this particular book I think you'd enjoy it more after having read book 1. This is exactly the time when I needed to find a new author and a new series that I can get lost in, so I look forward to moving on to Book 3.
