Very intimate telling of Morgan's thoughts, relationships and training as well as the struggles she went through. She is quite likeable in this version. I will try other books by this author.
I loved this book. It is beautifully written, the characters are all well developed, and the story is unpredictable (unusual in ''villian back story" novels). The story fills me with nostalgia for my childhood, when I loved hearing stories of knights and princesses and castles... but it adds enough serious, grown-up elements that I think a 13 year old and a 33 year old can both read and enjoy it. love love love this book. Take a risk on this hidden gem!
