This is a well written story with the hero trying his damndest to not fall in love with Gelis in order to save her from his cursed existence. You can't help but love Gelis and Ronan as the tortured lovers. The conclusion is very satisfying and proves that love does conquor all. This was a fast paced read which I read in under 3 hours.
This book is great! It grabs you from the first page! I don't recall reading anything from this author before, but you can bet I will look for her books in the future.
The relationship she builds between Gelis and Raven is wonderful. You fall in love with both characters! I highly recommend this book!
