Very enjoyable, uses different types of life.
This book tells about the daughter of Alanna from the lioness series. She has adventures away from home. I don't remember any romantics in this story for her. But after the noble side of things it is nice to read a story about the less noble people in life. She becomes a slave, and I found it interesting with how she coped with captivity, and servitude. Eventually becoming a member of the royal house. This book kept me up late, I didn't want to put it down.
Pierce really sets us up for excitement in this one! Fascinating and full of surprises. Our heroines are strong and intelligent, skilled and creative. Well-developed characters with diverse and realistic personalities, thoughts, opinions and motivations. Really incredible. LOVED IT!
