I loved Helena. She is one of the most interesting characters I have read about in books of that time frame. I appreciated her strength, sense of self, and ability to get things done. Varden is not too bad either. I have not read any of the other books in these series, but I feel this one stands alone.
I have read this series and enjoyed all three. Each one was more intriguing than the one before. The intensity of the relationship between the H/H keeps you reading until the end. I'm glad I read them in sequence because of the underlying story which culminates in the third book. I am truly sorry that she apparently is not publishing at the present time.
