This second book in the Phedre Trilogy was, in my opinion, better than the first. The pacing was much better and it kept you on your toes throughout. It had some lull moments, but they were well spaced and gave the main heroine time for some angst and going through all the facts and things she had done wrong and has to plan to do still The more dynamic format might have positively been assisted by the smaller page count, although at pages it is still a hefty tome.
In order to pursue her quarry she goes back to the seat of the royal family and rededicates herself to the goddess Namaah, thinking that by bedding as many nobles as she could, she might find who conspired and helped Melisande, and might be able to figure out where to find and detain her.
He fits perfectly with them, since they have been promised in a prophecy a country of their own, and he gets to train them to fight. Things between him and Phedre really go bad and this rift comes in play when he is not there to protect her.
Queen Ysandre de la Courcey puts on a good show as well, but nothing and no one can compare with Melisande Shahirizai and the heat that comes off the pages when she is in any proximity to Phedre!!!
Now that is a women of which even the big boys have to be terrified! Good for girl power, but still a bad person in the end Let the warriors clamor after gods of blood and thunder; love is hard, harder than steel and thrice as cruel. I will go with "this is Fantasy" so things like that can happen and it is OK! I also love that in the main land where Phedre comes from, love is acceptable in all forms as long as it is between consenting adults. Yes, this whole series is full of sexual relationships - after all, Phedre is a servant of Namaah, which makes her a highly paid prostitute and is also chosen by Kushiel.
So yeah, she is using her skills as a sex professional to spy for Queen and Country!!! She is a true patriot: : : : " I am very glad that some friends encouraged me to start the series and I am looking forward to the next installment with trepidation!!!
You have to give it a try!
