This book was a bit darker than some I've read by this author. Less romance and more political intrigue. Lots of lopping off of heads,poisonings,and throwing women into the water(in a rock filled sack).
This book was very well written. Once I started reading I had a hard time putting it down. The character development was amazing. I like reading books that are uplifting and make me feel good/happy when I get to the ending and that wasn't the case with this one.
