*Starred Review* Sophie lives on an enchanted mountain with her sisters, Juliet and Isadora, and all are witches, although Sophie's powers are weak. And the sisters are under a curse--whomever they fall in love with will die by the age of 30. But Sophie wants a baby, so she decides that she will just have to be careful not to fall in love with the man she chooses to father her child. Enter Kane, a wounded rebel soldier. Sophie uses what limited powers she has to cast a healing spell and seduce him; then, knowing she is with child, she sends him away. When he returns a year later and sees the infant, he insists on marriage, but Sophie knows that their love will lead to his death. Then the baby is kidnapped. Sophie and Kane must risk their lives to save the person who has become most precious to them, and amazing adventures unfold. Readers who enjoyed Nora Roberts' Three Sisters Island trilogy (Dance upon the Air, 2001; Face the Fire, 2002; Heaven and Earth, 2003) will also go for this marvelously captivating, sensuous, fast-paced adventure.

The title alone should tell you this book is about a witch and the fact that she is the "sun" witch should give away this is not a dark or truly tragic tale. Built around a curse that keeps the Fyne sisters from falling in love lest their love die an untimely death, the story centers around their need to break the curse. In the focus of this first tale is Sophie the youngest Fyne sister, one of three witches who live in relative seclusion on Fyne Mountain, and the father of her daughter Kane. When their baby daughter is kidnapped they must journey across their world to rescue her and along the way their journey reveals several things from their growing love to the identity of Sophie's father. In a secondary plotline we find Kane's long missing sister Lianne, a concubine living with the shut-in Emperor, leading a side story of court intrigue that helps to tie some of the story together.
I enjoyed the story as a whole but felt that oft times things were discovered with no conflict to strengthen the outcome. I was quite excited by the introduction of the character Ryn, whom I found intriguing, but felt like he was shoved into the story at random to prepare readers for the next book and that did not do him justice. The ending didn't quite satisfy me as a reader who likes more closure but knowing there are more tales of the Fyne sisters I will certainly read them and enjoy. If you're looking for a light, fluffy romance in a fantasy setting this book will likely please.
Sophie, lives a secluded life in the forest with her two sisters, because of the scorn of being labeled witches, and the curse placed upon their family generations ago. Sophie feels life calling her, and while her sisters have reminded her daily, she can never marry, she still yearns to feel the touch of a man upon her for the first time...and dreams of a man with green eyes. Little does she know, that man exists, and destiny will place him in her path...but what will come of their union? And what will come of her, when destiny steps in again and she is forced to confront the seat of power and reclaim her most precious treasure?
Kane, a rebel soldier, fighting with the rebel army to crush the Emperor's grip, wounded from battle, stumbles into a secluded forest. And in a dreamy state finds a beautiful woman, too perfect to be real, before him. And when he wakes from his sleep, he find himself healed, and a faint memory comes to mind where he made love to the most beautiful woman he's ever seen...an Angel. Though he suddenly finds himself living a life filled with luck, and free of pain, his greatest desire is to find his Angel..again. And when he finally finds her, what else will he have to endure to finally claim her as his? What else will confront him from his past?
Liane, a slave who has achieved the rank of concubine to the Emperor, lives each day in fear of Level Thirteen. Though she spends most of her time plotting, she must never loose sight of her goal, that one day she will be given the ultimate gift..to be trusted by the most dangerous man in the country. And when that day arrives, the day she has waited for since she was captured and taken from her family as a young girl, she will strike back at the very man who is responsible for her pain. But will her goal be everything she has imagined it be, or will she make a different choice?
Excellent book. Starts off a little slow and unsuspecting, but then it really picks up on takes you on quite a journey...one you never even anticipated. Really interesting characters too, and a good ending. The only major criticism (besides it starting slow), it should have had a map for the reader to reference.
