This was a really enjoyable read. I love Odette and Jorgen! They were well matched and were both characters that I cared to read about. The ending was a bit meh for me however. It was just a little too "perfect."

Okay, no spoilers since I'm the first to review.
The book was cute! The storyline was sweet, the characters were sweet, and the romance was sweet. Sweet and fluffy, with a little angst thrown in for good measure.
My favorite part about the book was definitely the two main characters, Odette and Jorgen. Odette is definitely one of my favorite heroines Dickerson has crafted (after Annabel from The Merchant's Daughter and Giselle from The Captive Maiden). She's more independent and self-sufficient than the other heroines from Dickerson's books, yet she is virtuous and sacrificial as well as bold and brave. I loved that combination in her personality, and it worked well with Jorgen's personality. Ah, Jorgen. He's now my second favorite male from Dickerson's books (after Ranulf from The Merchant's Daughter). He's a sweet, thoughtful guy who has a tender heart and a love for Odette that's so sweet and gentle...he's just a darling. And a complete "protector of women", as he is described. I really like that (a quality that both Ranulf and Valten, my two otehr favorite males from Dickerson's books, showed for their women).
One thing that felt a little lacking was the overall prose. I feel like although Dickerson has improved from The Healer's Apprentice, there are still some...flaws that I see peeking through from her first book. I don't know, Dickerson's prose lacks the thing that really draws us in and helps us feel what the story world is like or feel the characters emotions, instead of her just telling us of their pain. It took a few chapters to get my interested and caught up with the romance (which I feel started a little too soon), but then I was hooked and read through the rest without trouble.
If you like Dickerson's other books or like clean Christian fairy tale romances, then I'd recommend this. It is the start of her new series, after all. 3 stars.
