From the back cover:
The legend of the Gypsy Lady had been passed down for centuries, and now it is Cora's turn to dance in the square. Giving people hope and taunting the Demon King is what she lives for, until she catches the attention of Darius, prince of the demons. Hidden behind her mask, she keeps her identity from him until she is captured by the king. With her magic on the verge of waking and the village on the brink of war can Cora tame Darius' heart before it's too late?
Darius became obsessed with the Gypsy Lady the first time he had seen her dance and play in the market place. The night he kissed her became his undoing. When his father captures the woman people believed to be a spirit, Darius takes the chance to observe her. His obsession with her grows into something more, he knows that together they can stop the war and set things right, but can he accept it?
I loved this book. The characters had depth, all of them, even the supporting characters. They were all well fleshed out. It was obvious that even the minor characters had back-stories just waiting to be told, but I will get to that in a minute. The scenery, setting, was well detailed. I am a very visual reader, I like to be able to close my eyes and see what the author is writing about and with this story I was able to do that. The pace was spot on; not too fast, not too slow- just right. Now as for the supporting characters, what I would like to see is more of their stories, one in particular, I am hoping that the author decides to tell more of their story as I am really wanting to know what will become of the people, these characters.
