I greatly enjoyed this novella! It expanded the world for me as a reader, and kept me hooked into the story.
Lady Elilan has been through so much, and experiencing everything unfold from her viewpoint was marvelous. McKee creates characters with such incredible depth and complexity, that you can’t help feeling for them within just a few pages, if not sooner.
It was fascinating to learn more about the politics and to get some clarity on how healing works. And the lost love between the northern and southern kingdoms…I can’t wait til book two is out and we can see just how it will all be woven together! And I dare not say much more, for risk of giving out spoilers. ^_^
