I was really hesitant to read this. I tried one book by this author and didn't get past the first couple pages, but I'd been considering this book for awhile, and I finally decided to just suck it up and give it a shot. I'm really glad I did. It was really really good.The characters were all fully fleshed out, even the minor-est of characters were fully formed. The plot was compelling, though not particularly unique. If you're in the mood for a well written story with sexy guys, magic, humor, and a chinese crested named Prince Charming. Than this is the one for you.
