This book got rave reviews from Dear Author, enough so that I decided to pick it up. Did it deserve the rave reviews? Yes. It is a well written book, set in a fascinating world filled with intresting races. The plot was fast moving, and the characters interesting. I loved the way Pia refuse to give in to Drako's demands. It felt to me like their romance drowned in all the action, which is the reason it don't get 5 stars.
