This was my favorite installment of the series! Loved how bad Lothaire was and that he stayed true to his character even though more redeeming qualities seeped through as he fell for Ellie. The only problem I have with this series is that there are so many characters, I have a hard time sometimes remembering who is who and what they did in previous books. I wish KC would put some kind of reference in the back of the book, so you could go back and get a refresher without rereading all the other books every time a new one came out. Overall though, this book was great!
