After wanting to read this series for a while I was thrilled to get each of the books from the author to review.
I was not disappointed, in fact I found they were even better than I expected, and I had let myself have high expectations. That can happen if you wait and wait to get around to reading a book series, don’t you think?
After reading Duty I was happy to find out more about one of the characters who had me intrigued in the first book, Lord Dentin, I wanted to know more about the man who was a character that though he wasn’t a main character he left just as much impact on me as Tomas and Brielle, his background is so painful and yet he came out with faith, strength, and I now have a new favorite fictional couple.
