A treacherous, thrilling, epic fantasy about an outcast drawn into a war between two powerful rulers.

When ruthless soldiers seek refuge in her isolated cabin, they bring with them a captive--an injured spy who threatens to steal her heart. 

Jack's mission behind enemy lines to prove that the Mantle between Elsira and Lagamiri is about to fall nearly cost him his life, but he is saved by the healing Song of a mysterious young woman. Now he must do whatever it takes to save Elsira and it's people from the True Father and he needs Jasminda's Earthsong to do it. They escape their ruthless captors and together they embark on a perilous journey to save Elsira and to uncover the secrets of The Queen Who Sleeps.

Notes and Opinions:  This book had a lot of good things like the characters and the world buliding but then it also had a few bad things like missing characters. (Where we hear about them but dont see them) I really wished we could have met her brothers as well as a few other people that were talked about but not seen. 

This book was beautiful written and the world building was some of the best that I have read. The forfront of this title is love. This book is a romance and the magic although it is here it is not the main aspect of this story. And to tell you the truth I really enjoyed that.  

The characters that we did get to see were wonderful and I just couldn't put this one down. The cover is fantastic and the story is as well. Jasminda (love the name btw) was just beautiful and a wonderful character to read about.
