I love the historic/fantasy setting. Fragile peace between the two species - human and shih-aan - makes it a dangerous and enigmatic world.
Very interesting, very dark and very erotic story.
The only drawback is Ah Jinrao-Sir relationship with Sir - it is still a mystery to me after I finished the book. You think you have it all laid out for you, but something happens between the two of them at the end that twists everything and leaves you guessing. There are
hints in the last chapters, but not enough to close that particular storyline. It would be nice to have a side story or a sequel. (One can dream, right? :))
Still - five stars!
