This book had potential. There were many plot elements that had the characters been better developed would have carried off the novel. However, there were too many holes in the story and the characters were both incredibly underdeveloped and unlikeable in their present form that made it tough to read the story. Our main heroine, Bethryn never really matures. She acts like an impetus brat from beginning to end. Ian is a jerk too. A complete philanderer and his evolution feels false due to the lack of development as well. The concept is intriguing of hidden identity and the novel started out promising.
