Modesitt's character is interesting, I think this series could use a little romantical (does such a word exist?) falling in love sort of thing.
All in all, I like the setting and the strategical planning, and the world -and the book- are rather well thought out This book(s) also has a few longish, slightly zzzzzzz parts and a few parts in the next book I personally would have added more explanations for her actions. Also the end is a sort of brutal thing that I do not think would have really gotten more favor to her cause. Great book! All the characters have different veiws and motives and plans, which makes it even more interesting. I think that if you have not read this book and like a good, complicated world, a character who thinks and is smart and diplomatic, or a women fighting for rights in a place with power hungry and self serving men ( and people who trust the wrong person TOO much) you might like this book.
