I absolutely loved this book. Especially for the fact that it had very minimal sexual themes (no sex- besides implication that a character had previously done it with someone, but no description for that, one kiss and some vague thoughts, one side gay character), and focused much more on the amazing fantasy world and the political situation (their magical kingdom is going to war and they have to figure it out). The writing flowed great and I remember hardly any cursing, one drinking scene where two characters get drunk. The characters were really strong and passionate. The violence wasn't too descriptive besides some wounds described and one or two slight torture scenes but it wasn't too bad, might scare younger kids but I'm sensetive and wasn't too disturbed.
Lots of themes of sacrifice for love and the good of others above yourself.
