The review of this Book prepared by Dipa

Danica Shardae, an Avian shapeshifter, has the ability to take on a hawk's form and wander the skies. Destined to take her mother's place as ruler of the Avian people, Danice knows too well the challenges she will face concerning the war her people have been fighting for generations against the Serpiente people across the land.

Danica is tired of the bloodshed. It is all her people know, and she'll do anything to stop the hatred and fear, even consider taking Zane Cobriana, the terrible heir to the Serpiente throne, as her mate.

Danica faces the challenge of convincing her people that Zane is just as commited to peace as she is, though she doubts his convictions herself. In Serpiente lands, she'll have to pretend she's in love, but in private Danica and Zane's instincts keep them worlds apart.

Among them are people who will do anything to destroy their union, and the trust Zane asks of Danica may be more than she can give.
