Dance for a Dead Princess by Deborah Hawkins
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Overall rating based on plot, characters and writing
Initial thoughts - It started out fast but then it slowed down and I wasn't sure if I was going to like the rest of the book. I was expecting it to be a romance book with little mystery but it turned out to be the other way around.
Pros - I loved this book. It was absolutely packed with adventure, passion, heart-stopping suspense, love! If you are someone who prefers to read literary fiction over any other genres, as I do, all I can say to you is put your prejudices aside and try this book. I'm sorry I didn't read it sooner. It truly is the work of an excellent and extremely talented storyteller and writer, all my "book snob" friends will be getting a copy, and I can't wait to read more from this author!
Cons - The dialogue wasn't consistent and at some sections did not seem to fit the setting or the character's traits.
In the end, I say - A good read which was emotionally satisfying and tied up loose ends in a good way.
