Excerpt

ularity. She hated him for it very thoroughly, but she always had to yield.

"Why did you go to the Campions'?" she asked, barely restraining her irritation.

It's a book that deals with assisted suicide and if it's love that prompts it. If you are going to read it you should read The way of an Eagle and The Rocks of Valpre by the same author first, because this story ties the two books together by taking minor charactors and giving them a starring role. It also gives you more info about the main charactors in the other books though they have minor roles in this one. Altogether an interesting read.
