My Rating: 4/5 stars
Out of all 3 books, this was by far my favorite. Finally, some character development! Even though I was swayed by Narian, I really felt for Steldor in this book. In fact, in some scenes I just wanted to yell at Alera and tell her to quit being stupid, because Steldor is actually a decent guy. He really is in love with Alera, but her heart already belongs to Narian.
I really felt for Alera's sister, Miranna, in this book. She was kidnapped by Cokyrians and has come back clearly distraught and traumatized at her imprisonment there. I loved how sweet Temerson (Miranna's betrothed) is to her. We met him in Legacy as this shy, awkward character, but he really is perfect for Miranna and they fit together beautifully.
After Narian's disappearance towards the end of Legacy, he is not in this book very much at all. We see alot more of him in the conclusion, Sacrifice.
