I truly liked the two main characters , they were written so well and they are complex . Jasminda is an outcast but you see her strength and character . She is tough but also sensitive . She just wants to be left alone in her cabin . She thinks that no one would want her because of her gift . As you read you really watch her grow and become a kick butt character . Jack is a soldier and a prince and a man of honor . He helps brings Jasminda into force to be reckoned with . He is smitten with Jasminda but deep down I think he knows that duty might rip him away from her . There are a lot of supporting characters that help and hinder the main characters on their journey to end the wars .
I sat down and started reading this book . I was blown away on how beautifully written it was .. The author takes us on an emotional journey where duty and love collide . The characters will take your breath away they are complex and well written . You will fall in love with Jasminda and Jack and cry and cheer with them . There is a mystery and romance through out this book . But I did feel that there were parts of the book that did drag a bit . I felt the last bit of the book could of had more fighting and a bit more action to bring the ending to a resolve . Over all I did love the book and would recommend it for your summer reading list . So check it out .
