Alicia is trying to do her job but you can almost feel the tension she's letting off. Marco shows how stubborn the other side can be but we just have to be patient while their "walls" crumble and learn that it's not all about war. This story is a lesson of helping each other no matter what we look like. We need to learn not to discriminate. It was fascinating to watch interest grow between two people that couldn't be more different. They are told that you don't mix with the other side but when it comes to love it looks into the heart. And at least in the fictional world, love wins out.
The story left me glad that I read it. There didn't appear to be a cliffhanger to carry on to the next story. But it left me wanting to know more about this war that they all seem to be caught up in. Marco has a brother Mason and at times you see a peek of his story here. Knowing that the next book gives me look at Mason has solidified the fact that I need to read Claiming His Lioness.
