The book had a nice start to it. The defeated people under the oppression of the Athonites really appealed to me. Even though they lost the war, they continued to resist the oppressive conquering nation. The narration put you in their place, on the receiving end of a long hatred between the two nations. Seri's people are treated like barbarians and lawless animals. The tension in the book was so strong, so real, that I found myself resenting the Athonites and rooting for Seri's people. However, I instantly picked up on bad vibes from Rilen, who had the first claim on Seri. And when I say claim, I mean it. He acts like a territorial animal toward her. His possessiveness didn't even vaguely feel like love. Even so, Seri allows him to bully her into doing his dirty work. He knew, KNEW that if she went to the palace that she would be treated horribly and may even be raped by the guards. Even so, he sent her there without hesitation. He didn't care about her, but she was so eager to please him. That's the first thing that I didn't care for.
But I thought, ah, this is just the beginning, she'll get out of that bad relationship eventually.
Well, she does.
But she gets into another one.
Enter Prince Graeme.
At first, I thought he may not be that pompous. Sure, he's the prince of the nation that oppresses Seri's people, but hey, who says he has to be a bad person? The book thought so too. All the characters sung praises to his name, calling him "kind" and "gentle". All right, flattery is nice, but I wish it was a little more... true. Throughout the book Graeme is cold toward everyone, even Seri. Graeme keeps her locked in the castle and refuses to let her see her family.

I absolutely adored this book, it reminded me of WARPRIZE by Elizabeth Vaughan, but with more of a paranormal twist. I'm a huge fan of Jill Myles' writing, so I loved that she kept her sexy and funny style throughout.

I really liked that Seri was put between a rock and a hard place, trying to do everything she could to save her family and her people all while navigating this entire new culture she was thrown into. Seri does come across as very young and naive in the beginning and middle of the book, but I thought her character development was well done, as she realized the truth about the boy she thought she loved, and the man who won her heart.

I would have liked to have had more time in Graeme's POV, because I loved his character so much. The persona the public saw, and the man he wanted to be were very different, and I wanted the opportunity to get into his head. I wanted the chance to really feel how much he struggled with Seri, knowing that they came from two incredibly different backgrounds, how scared she was of him, and how desperately he wanted her love and acceptance. Alas, Myles didn't grant that wish, other than a few scenes.

I think fans of fantasy and paranormal romance alike should read this one. It was fun and sexy and different from the previous books Myles has released.

Seri is a simple Vidari goose girl. All she cares about is taking care of her family and getting married to Rilen in the spring. But when the Athonite court arrives, and Seri is given an opportunity to work for an Athonite noblewoman, she goes into the enemy’s castle to earn some money and to spy on the Prince. She soon finds out that the curse of The Blood is real and that the reigning royals are literal monsters who live on blood. When a twist of fate lands Seri and Prince Graeme together – bonds are forged, loyalties are tested and they each have to find a way to make things work.

I liked Seri from the beginning. She comes across this normal village girl who works hard to take care of her family. Her world revolves around her father, sister and her love interest, Rilen. She is pretty much resigned to the life that has been dealt to her. Later in the book though, I was really mad at Seri when she had the chance to get her parents out and up to the castle for a better life, she really dragged her feet. Her father had been sick and could have had a cure and medicines, yet she really did not do much to get them there. She did send for them, though a bit late, but never really followed up on it. It just did not feel right to me that she was enjoying the grandeur of the castle while her family was left behind. Rilen on the other hand came off as a really good guy in the beginning. He seemed to care for Seri and even gave up his daily earning to make sure she and her family had enough food. He also seemed to be an idealistic, who wanted to fight for his freedom from the oppression of the Athonites. But his ideas and fight for freedom took him down the wrong path… I really stopped liking Rilen when he sent Seri back to the castle. Prince Graeme made an ‘okay’ impression on me.

I'm a big fan of Jill Myles' books and this book certainly didn't disappoint! I'm really excited to see that she dipped her toe into a more fantasy genre! The story was interesting and the main character was well-developed, so I was able to rip through this in a matter of hours. With that being said, I do agree with one of the other reviewers in that I wish there was a little more POV from the Hero. I feel like it would have only added to the tension (and story) if we were able to get into his head and know just how crazy the heroine made him. Overall, a solid and enjoyable book and I would definitely recommend!
