This is the first book I have read of this author and it sure will not be the last book ether. I went in a bought a new book from her after I read this one. It is very well written and I really loved the world she had created. The characters was very well written and easy to like, it is too bad this is not a series as I would have loved to follow them and get to know them more. But they did have a nice closure at the end of the book so I am happy.
