More than just a romance, this story is just as good as the first in this series, and is a full-blown fantasy done with a great imagination. The romance is an awesome bonus though. A warning; it's very fast-paced and will cost you sleep if you read it at bed-time. Just as the tagline says, I found it unputdownable. I really hope this isn't the last book in the series. I really like the characters and would like to spend more time with them.
