Review:
  With a whole lot of curiosity I delved into this book, and was completely immersed in the world Sherry Thomas created. I was hooked by page one! Everything from the characters to the magical world and the time period. This didn't feel at all like a YA, maybe because both leads Iolanthe Seabourne & Prince Titus VII while only 16 acted mature for their ages and didn't act sullen or whine about their life, but took life by the horns and thought their actions through instead of jumping the gun and rushing into danger.  I loved the twists and turns that Thomas threw at the reader, keeping one of their toes but didn't leave the book on some cliffhanger but with some loose threads that will lead to the next book, which I quickly picked up as I love this magical world and couldn't wait to catch up with Iolanthe and Titus again!
