This book captured my imagination and twists many ideas between duality. The push and pull of masculine and feminine energy, the powers of rank in society, and the human spirit to push forward to survive.
The author gives enough detail to describe elements so that you can picture it, and enough sub plot to keep her reader hooked.
I enjoyed it and will definitely be reading the sequel.
For other readers negative comments, the main character is thrust into many scenarios that she has never been exposed to quickly and has to adapt, while being controlled by her circumstance or her indentured rank.
