I will admit, when I first read the book blurb, I thought that this book’s romance set-up seemed like the regencies I read. This is a second-chance romance as well as a chance to save the heroine’s land from an evil sorcerer. I’ll admit that I had a hard time getting into the story. The author just throws us into it, with a big cast of characters with odd names (as is typical in fantasy). It would have been nice if she had a cast of characters’ page (or two) at the beginning so the reader would easily know who is who and what their relationships are. Also, since we’re being thrown right into the mix without any explanation or subtle clues, a brief summary and introduction to the world would have eased reading. Just recently I read another fantasy book where the author wrote the text in such a way that someone unfamiliar with the world and its characters would have no trouble understanding the worldview and character relationships right from the start; I love it when authors do that. If they don’t like that or don’t want to do that for some reason, they should at least do the mini summary and list of characters as I mentioned above.
As you can tell from what I’ve written, I wouldn’t consider this to be a stand-alone book. If the series interests you, I recommend starting at the beginning. If you plan to take any time off at all between books, take notes!
