Was so very disappointed in this book, particularly for one by Patricia Briggs. Lots of loose ends many ideas with potential and practically no followthrough. This is one of those few cases when I felt a book could have been a LOT longer. Here are just a few examples.
There are no dragons in this book – well there is, but not a significant one and it only appears on the page once, in a dream. Patricia Briggs has learned a lot about writing since she wrote ‘Steal the Dragon’, but the early promise was definitely there and this is well worth reading. So having got that out of the way, this is early Briggs (1995). Rialla’s internal conflict about her independence and her feelings about slavery are well done and not too heavy-handed.

Pushing aside a few books, he cleared space on his desk for the lantern. Before leaving this evening at the usual time, he'd taken the precaution of pulling the heavy curtains across his window so that no one would see the light from the outside. He wasn't really concerned with secrecy or he never would have chosen his office as tonight's meeting place, but it was his nature as well as his profession to keep as much information to himself as possible. How could I refuse when your invitation was so unique? I had no idea that my mistress's gardener was a Sianim spy until he invited me to meet with you here. Not that I am offended by it.
CHAPTER ONE. She stretched her arms wide, hands open, holding the pose for an instant before bursting into furious motion. Each placement of foot and angle of wrist was choreographed, thoughtless, perfect. Her body flowed from one movement to the next, graceful, seductive, submissive in turn. In the maze that was the oldest building in Sianim, Ren, better known as the Spymaster of Sianim, settled himself in his chair and looked out the open window at nothing in particular. The chair had been made for his predecessor, who had been a much larger man.
