I enjoyed this book, a far-world adventure of intrigue and betrayal between ruling families. I found some of the names of the main protagonists to be rather similiar and therefore a little confusing to begin with, but it was worth persevering with. The characters are well drawn and rounded, but they did seem to be rather preoccupied with their clothing which began to irritate a little. The storyline was well constructed and at times intricate, but it all pulled together in the final chapter to a satisfactory conclusion.
Overall, a good read and recommended.
