Yelena's adventures continue. After she's gone through some pretty crazy stuff (Including being a poison tester for the Commander of Ixia) she's now on her way to her foreign homeland to learn magic and find out who she was, and is. But, she'll soon discover that she's not completely welcome... dun dun dun!
I really like this series. It has romance, intrigue, betrayal, magic, all the things that make up a fabulous tale. Yelena's character pulls me in by my heartstrings. There were some times I wanted to kick the characters, and other times I wanted to kiss them.
An absolutely delightful series. However, due to some of the mature themes and slight language, I would not recommend this book to anyone under the age of 15, maybe a mature 13 or 14 year-old. Maybe. I wouldn't let my hypothetical 13-year-old read it, and I love it.
