This was an okay book. It was fairly enjoyable, except that I kept waiting for the "real story" to start. It's fairly obvious that Rilsin is going to have to overthrow her cousin and oust her from the throne -- Sithli is an incompetent ruler -- and I spent almost the entire novel waiting for the rebellion to get started. I suppose we're supposed to be all caught up in Rilsin's struggle with her divided loyalties, but instead all I felt was incredibly frustrated.

Still, the author made me care enough that I finished the entire book, so I'm giving it three stars. I won't be buying the sequel, though.
