seem to conspire against them.
I really enjoyed this installment of the series. I was less of the dark actions as so many of the past events have been, and poor Rak seems to finally be finding some happy moments. Jisten is still fairly insecure, but in their lovemaking seems to be getting stronger emotionally and I can see how he is growing through his love of and receiving love from Rak. And, oh, yes! One of the villains finally got his comeuppance! It's about time that one of the bad guys exited stage left! It was nice to see all of Rak's time being spent with Jisten rather than being forced to do things against his will, and the scenes that take place in the Valer village are a good change from the time spent in the palace or the Sun Temple.
This book gives the reader of the series a much needed breather from the intensely difficult scenes of many of the past books without sacrificing movement in the plot. Of course, as difficult as protecting the prince has been in the past, I predict that future installments will have some nearly insurmountable obstacles for Rak and Jisten to fight again! I also feel that along the series the writing has improved.
