High adventure. High Romance. Lovely prose, character development, historical settings.
Some advice. This is part of a series of 8 books. The story arcs etc move seamlessly from one book to the next, and from time to time quotes and phrases used in later books refer back to earlier volumes. You won't lose out if you are reading out of sequence but really to get the best out of the series start at the first book. Also you might find a dictionary occasionally helpful - when did you last come across the word "ounce" as a name for a snow-leopard? Also note that all these books have five star ratings except for one at the end where coffee had been dropped on the cover!
