I sort of hate giving this only two stars. After all, I loved the writing, and I loved the story premise. I loved all the characters (seriously, Hester & Camber were so cute I could hardly stand it) but one, and since that one was the heroine, well, that's hard to swallow. I didn't hate her, but at times I found her frustrating in the extreme. More than once my heart broke for Fenris. Given that, to my mind the HEA seemed forced. I can't help thinking that Fenris deserved so much better--and so did we.
