In my opinion this one of the best in this series but then Lackey IS a storyteller. As in the other books she has the Major Plot with subtle dwelling on the consequences of character and behavior and even brings in racism and bigotry.

I really enjoyed this book, as I have all the Elemental Masters series.

This was an interesting book. I really liked parts of it but if you have read Lackey's book Reserved for the Cat you may notice some similarities.

I enjoyed this book being set on mages instead of Masters. I also enjoyed the darker aspect of the female protagonist's history. There were a few things left unresolved, but otherwise it was a pretty good read. It is, of course, similar to all her other Elemental Masters books in the romance aspect, but that's to be expected. Although I find it would be nice if she wrote a story where the female knew what she was doing instead of just the men.

The book gave the reader some new information about the masters and elementals, but otherwise I found it quite underwhelming, compared to the other books in this series. I didn't like how the protagonist's situation with her abusive husband was handled. And I find myself wearying of Lackey's romantic plots.
