I absolutely adored this novel! The whole story line, the characters, the EVERYTHING of this book was done so well I can’t even fault it. It showed girl power to the max and was just breathtaking to read. This novel is a massive build up for the drama that will unravel in Heir of Fire and the other books in the series. I am eager to read the sequel!

These books inspired the BBC series “Shetland” featuring DI Jimmy Perez. An enjoyable murder mystery that kept me guessing until the end. The characters are well developed and the plot is well thought out.
