The fourth book in the Twelve Houses series is a simply stellar novel from beginning to end. Cammon and Amalie are wonderful protagonists, and it's a joy to see their relationship develop against the painstakingly built world of Gillengaria. And Shinn's denouement is a thoroughly satisfying resolution of one of the ongoing conflicts of the series.

Cammon, a gifted mystic capable of seeing the truth that resides
in people's hearts, has been given a mission of his own: to read the hearts
of the men who wish to wed Princess Amalie. Cam and Amalie are both young and idealistic, and when they find a connection with each other,
their friends and chosen families react with dismay.

Cam starts to believe that Amalie
is a mystic -- for not only can she shield her thoughts from him, she
has the ability to control the ferocious raelynx. In a world that is increasingly unfriendly to mystics, this is most definitely a dangerous belief. (Ace, Nov., 432
