I'd never read J.V.Jones before, but this stand alone book does have good characters, an imaginative plot and storyline, and it moves along. I did think it glossed over some of the magic, but...not enough to ruin the story.

A great cross-over fantasy. I really enjoyed it. . Its fun and exciting. . Tessa goes through so much crap in this book you really start to feel for her!

The ending was great and I loved the character Ravis!

J.V. Jones is my favorite author, with that being said I will sill give my honest opinion and at some points in this book i felt it dragged a little, she was a little verbous,and went on and on sometimes, but all in all its well worth the read!

I give it a 4 out of 5
