This is not normally the genre that I like to read but I had heard such good things about the trilogy that I decided to give it a try. Honestly, I almost quit this first book about 1/3 of the way through--but, due to the urging of a buddy, I plodded on. Jones creates characters that a reader can emphasize with, cheer for, and love. She has the ability to weave a story that is intense and suspenseful. Her erotic scenes would make a virgin blush. BUT, having named all those wonderful qualities about this book I have to say that the repetition of the same sentiments and thoughts over and over and over made this novel tedious. How many times does Jones have to remind me that the Fyne witches have a curse upon them? Oh, and one other thing--the replacing vowels with y in many of the names and the use of "creative" spelling to try to invent names made the novel tedious as well. Over all, I'd recommend this book just as a backdrop for the other two, which are much better.

This was a great book! This is not normally the genre that I read, but I was hooked. It's the first book in a trilogy. You will definitely want to read all 3.

I enjoyed this book. The magic the sisters possess, especially that of the Sun Witch, is interesting. I liked the characters. I have only 2 complaints. My first revolves around the curse. It is very clear upfront what the curse is, and how it came to be. However, it is not even 1/2 way resolved (or should that be 1/3 way) by the end of this first book. It's really obvious that the author intends for the reader to move on to each of the books in the series for the resolution. I don't mind that there's a hook into the next, as I do intend to read it. It's just that I would have liked there to be some part of the solution to have been discovered in the present story with the present heroine. My second minor complaint has to do with the introduction of another female character. I didn't like that the story moved to another point of view and another place out the blue. I didn't particularly like the placement. I know this technique is used in thrillers, but the placement within this storyline was jarring. I wish it would have been worked a bit more skillfully.
Other than these things, I recommend this 1st book in the series.

This book was surprisingly good. I really liked Sophie. Though she grew up sheltered, she was able to realize her potential to rescue her daughter. I thought Kane was a pretty good hero and a perfect match for Sophie.

The side story dealing with the war and the emperor was very intriguing and kept me on the edge of my seat. I can't wait to read the next book in this trilogy
