Overview

For years, Seri's simple people have lived under the thumb of the Athonites, a regal, erudite caste. She wants no part of politics, though; she simply wants to live in peace. But when she's given the opportunity to work at the enemy's castle, she takes it, not realizing that she is sealing her own fate.

Prince Graeme is surprised to see the wild girl at court acting as a servant. He's even more surprised when, during an important ceremony, she is decreed as his chosen bride - his Betrothed. As his Betrothed, she will give something long denied those of his lineage: relief from his age-old secret curse.

As kingdoms come to war and Seri's people begin an uprising, she will have to pick sides. Will she choose her own folk...or the mysterious prince that is slowly stealing her heart?

    more from this reviewer

    Very loosely based on "The Goosegirl," Myles' "Be

    Very loosely based on "The Goosegirl," Myles' "Betrothed" is an excellent fairy tale romance. I love the chemistry between Seri and Graeme, and how Seri's difficult situation is so realistically portrayed. The secondary characters are also a lot of fun; I hope Myles returns to this fictional universe with stories for Josdi and Melunoe.

    I have only a couple of small complaints. There are random typos and grammatical errors scattered through the text. Additionally, the theology is not well articulated. Seri and Graeme are betrothed by divine mandate; while the Vidari worship four Gods (one for each season). the Athoni make reference to "gods," "the goddess" and "the One True God." I wish the theology was a little better explained.

    Other than that, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. Highly recommended to fans of fairy tale romances, fantasy romances, and Myles' other books. -- lyradora

    Another hit from Myles

    I love this author! She is one of the best. I love her vampire novels and love fantasy so this was brilliant. Jill, I hope you never stop writing and I hope to one day be as great as you!
