After Medalon's surrender to Karien invaders, Tarja and R'shiel retreat into neighboring Hythria. R'shiel has arranged the marriage of Damin Wolfblade of Hythria and Princess Adrina of Fardohnya in the hopes that their two countries will unite against the Kariens. But they face unexpected problems in the form of political unrest and other turmoil.
R'shiel, however, has other worries.
Fallon handles multiple storylines and a multitude of characters with ease. She has a deft touch with description, revealing varied facets of the characters with just a few well-placed words. While the basic plot is somewhat formulaic, Fallon is a gifted enough writer to bend the conventions when necessary to make her story unique. The story moves quickly and is a most satisfying conclusion to the series. (Jul., 496 pp., $25.95)
