I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
This was well written and had a solid world-building and story flow.
It unfortunately doubles with "Mirija" - I would not recommend to read both, because that is boring. It is the same story, partially word for word, just told from another PoV, but without any new or exciting insight.
What I didn't like: Danyael is to good to be true and Zara got on my nerves quite quickly.
She sounds like an A**. Not sure why Danyael would give her the time of the day, or why the soul of a unlikable mercenary and killer would sparkle to the eyes of an Empath. That does not make any sense. And I do not like when characters in books are unearthly beautiful - and have violet eyes.
With Galahad and Danyael it makes a certain sense because the genetic thing is bascially the core of the story, similar for Lucien.
I found it quite sad - how Danyael was the beaten puppy all the time.
I took a sneak peek into the next few installments and it doesn't look like his life will improve...started the second one, but I think this will be it for me with Danyael's tragic heroic life.
