This is a story how two princesses from rival kingdoms,came together to be friends. We will learn all about the kingdoms,the politic,the magic,the romance... through Ailsbet and Marissa's story.

There are two kinds of magic Taweyr and Newyer.
The two kingdoms favor each a different kind.In Rurik it is Taweyr and in Weirland it is Newyer.
Taweyr is the more aggressive magic ,the offensive.
Newyer is the magic of new life creation.

Ailsbet is the only character not feeling flat and plastic.All the others are not well enough developed .
The magic system is different and thus fresh and interesting but the whole story felt more like a medieval court intrigue romance then a fantasy novel.There was not enough magic for my taste.
But,it was a good story and the writing is ok. I must say yes, I saw many flaws in this book. Nonetheless, I did enjoy it and i am planing to read the sequel.
