4 stars – It was really good

Elina Shestakova of the Black Bear Riders of the Midnight Mountains of Despair in the Far Reaches of the Steppes of the Outerplains is sent to kill Queen Rhiannon. She knows this is a death sentence but she goes anyway. The queen doesn’t kill her though and months later she is given the task of setting up talks for an alliance.

Well this book was surprisingly fun! I was a little iffy on Celyn after his constant fighting with Éibhear in the previous books, but I actually liked him. He is definitely Bram’s son with all of his questions and curiosity. Also, he could be surprisingly ruthless when he needed to be, which I really liked. 

Elina was straightforward, blunt, and a skilled archer. I couldn’t help but love her. Her life has been harsh but she still has stayed true to herself, even when it cost her everything. She fit along wonderfully with everyone else in Annwyl’s court. Also her sister, Kachka, was just as straightforward and enjoyable as Elina was. 

I quite enjoyed these two’s relationship. They are complete opposites but it worked well for them. I can’t wait to see how the Steppe sisters integrate into this decadent lifestyle. As for the overall story, the cult has finally made a move against the dragons and Annwyl. It will be interesting to see how they deal with this in the next book, which I am sure will be bloody and action packed.
