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 and his relationship with Wishbone's Sir - it is still a mystery to me after I've finished the book. You think you have it all spelled out, but something happens between the two of them at the end it 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!
