    Originally reviewed on The Book Smugglers Rhis of the small, craggy, but bountifully rich kingdom of Nym lives a charmed but rather boring life.Though she s intelligent, Rhis is not the heir to the throne and thus has little interest in learning all the subjects that make a queen especially not when her stuffy elder sister by marriage insists on nitpicking the flaws in Rhis s attention span and work ethic...

    I wrote out a long review and then my computer went wonky and I lost it.so here is the short version Great book with many flaws but overcomes those flaws with fantastic, realistic characterizations and situations The sort of book I would read to my future kids for the ending alone.

    Posse has been polished, and a new chapter added Look for the spiffed version in e book form.
