Greatly enjoyed this book. Lo's writing is evocative, lush and lyrical, and I felt for her characters. Her prose is particularly strong when describing the lands of faerie and the wonder/terror of her protagonist's experiences with them. I liked the romance between Aisling and Kaisa, but I did feel like the book was maybe a little too thin for the scope of the story it was telling. Still, I don't regret buying it, and I'd recommend it to anyone--especially to those who wish we had more serious female / female stories on the market, whether romantic or not.
