As the son of a formidable Breed warrior, Aric Chase has been devoted to the Order all his life. With his training completed, all he needs is one successful mission before he can join the fight to destroy the Order's chief nemesis, Opus Nostrum. His rare ability to daywalk lands Aric an assignment in Montreal, where he learns he's to be teamed with another new recruit, a beautiful but tough-as-nails Breedmate named Kaya Laurent. Independent and driven, Kaya wants nothing more than to become a full-fledged member of the Order.

Born a generation apart and with very different ideas about love and family, Mariam and Laila are two women brought jarringly together by war, by loss, and by fate. As they endure the ever escalating dangers around them, in their home as well as in the streets of Kabul, they come to form a bond that makes them both sisters and mother-daughter to each other, and that will ultimately alter the course not just of their own lives but of the next generation.

This book is heart breaking and touching, tearful and comforting. It is the best book I have ever read (tied with The Kite Runner by the same author). the narrator is fantastic as well.

All that history knows of Grace Plantagenet is that she was an illegitimate daughter of Edward IV and one of two attendants aboard the funeral barge of his widowed queen. Thus, she was half sister of the famous young princes, who, when this story begins in 1485, had been housed in the Tower by their uncle, Richard III, and are presumed dead. But in the 1490s, a young man appears at the courts of Europe claiming to be Richard, duke of York, seeking to claim his rightful throne from England's first Tudor king.

if you're interested in historical fiction this book is a must-read. So far I have enjoyed all of Ann Easter Smith's books, she does a fabulous job of researching history and filling in the blanks with her own logical stories. She also explains at the end of the book the fact from fiction. This book is an absolute work of art.
