Wow. What a beautiful novel. You can totally tell this was written by a woman, as the powerful women are not man haters (Like in the Wheel of Time series). I love the writing style, it flowed fell. The relationship between the women were not sex centered but relationship centered. I thought it would bore me, but I absolutely loved it. Not much else to say except that is a very beautiful novel and can’t wait to read the next one in the series.
