I really love Candace Camp. I just love her writing and this book didn't let me down. This is the first in the series. I actually read the second book first and didn't really find a problem with reading them out of order. I just normally like to read them in order so that I can catch up with the previous characters. I really loved how the heroine took care of her family and friends and that she went for it when trying to save them. I like the hero as he wasn't a bad guy and understood how she felt about others. I would recommend this book!
