    Excellent, but

    So many of the protagonists actions make absolutely no sense. They are supposed to be spying, but go out of their way to be noticeable. All the shapeshifters could have changed genders early to throw off pursuit; they could have left with the raelynx without showing him to the town. One expects some silly impulses friom characters in a story to show their humanity and advance the plot, but these errors cannot be justified.

    Nonetheless, the characters are interesting, the writing excellent, and the plot entertaining.

    Strong female characters

    I really enjoyed Ms. Shinn's Archangel series and thought I'd try this new series. I'm glad I did. As in the Archangel series, the female characters are strong and capable, talented and funny. I was a little annoyed with the beginning of the story when the main character, Senneth has to explain the political structure of the ruling 12 houses to the naive Cammon. Surely, anyone living in the country for most of his life would know more about the structure of it. Once I got past the exposition, however, I enjoyed the plot. The romance between Tayse and Senneth grew very nicely and I liked that I wasn't quite sure if they would get together until the end.

    Not too bad

    I wasn't sure what to think about Mystic and Rider when I picked it up. It started off a bit slow and did drag in parts, but overall I enjoyed it. Not the best book I've ever opened, but still a good read.
