For a person who doesn’t care for “historical” books, I absolutely loved this tale. Just when I thought I had everything figured out, Shiralyn threw a curveball at me. I think at one time I shook my head and said, “No freaking way!” Shiralyn, you did one helluva job keeping me on my toes and for that, you got five stars.
