Lissa is back, and she isn’t happy. Not only is she stuck three hundred years in the future on a world far from Earth but she has also been mistaken for a boy. Just as she begins to find out who she is and what she has lost she finds herself back in the kitchen, using her skill around food to wow those who treat her like a slave.
This series is full of fantasy creatures, races, and skills. Nothing is too far-fetched or far into the future for Suttle and her vampire queen. I must admit that I did get a little lost with the alien races but the story kept me riveted, regardless.
Lissa’s character has held me since book one and although I don’t understand why she still covets her relationship with Gavin, I do appreciate her other relationships. The book is full of steamy scenes, none too explicit, and she is spoilt for choice but it still holds a little romance in between every hot male of every alien race wanting to bed her.
If you like a strong female lead, then this will drive you crazy because Lissa is at one moment strong and powerful and the next she is sucked back into patriotic bureaucracy with no power at all. Despite not being able to grasp who was who I really enjoyed the story and will be reading the next book in the series.
