Instead of closely following the (mis)adventures of Hilde and Ilfayne, this time the focus is upon Lord Hunter and the difficulties he is having keeping to his given word. The emphasis is also more upon the love that Hunter can't have--and the unimaginable cost that could come with breaking his oaths.
This book was an excellent follow up to ILFAYNE'S BANE. Though familiar characters play a role here, there are also new allies and threats that present themselves, as well as new territories explored. A delightful fantasy romp with just enough romance to balance the adventure.
