This book is an extensively rewritten and renamed version of the book Chandra by the same author. The author wrote on the back of the book that she felt that this book belonged in the song series. I just wanted to point this out in case you have already read Chandra.
This is the only book from the series that I read. Usually I will not read a series out of order, but I enjoyed this one on it's own.
This book is a good read like most of Coulter's midieval stories. Chandra is more warrior than lady, and Jerval de Vernon, who takes her as wife, it not quite able to handle this part of her. However the best thing about this book is the lesson she learns about love and compromise, and the lesson HE learns about acceptance and patience. There is a twist of history in the story that is quite enjoyable.
