I do find myself often questioning whether or not this series will have any kind of pleasant conclusion. Things just have never seem to get better, its like the protagonists take two steps forward and they kill their dog. None of our heros will be able to enjoy anything they save, which makes these books a bit depressing.

The series is so well carved that the one cannot think of parting with it until the story is finally finished. The story has both objective and subjective modes or we can say that the story from micro-level converges to a macro stage. Gaborn Val Orden the prince only wants the hand of the lovely Princess Some who is the girl of his dreams. The prince is captivated by the beauty of the princess that he decides to go to her kingdom in disguise rather in full pomp and show so that he can understand her and her kingdom in a better way before sending the royal proposal.
On the way to Salvarresta s strange thing happens that change the course of the story altogether and suddenly changes it from a love story into a war that goes bigger and bigger at every second step.
The story quite wonderfully unfolds itself at every step and the revelation of the secrets also makes it more interesting and saves us from boredom. The story also has war and fight scenes in plenty which is quite attractive for the action lovers. Ray Porter has delivered the narration service throughout the series which makes us a bit attached to his voice and narrative technique as well which has surely improved as the series continued.
James brings in some of the best thrilling stories like this one as well. Book 1.
