I was thrilled to get this book as soon as it came out, and couldn't wait to dive into it. I was not disappointed. I can't say that I cared a whole lot about the main character, Rhoma Grace, but the world Romina (interesting how the MC's name is very similar to the author's name) created was beautiful and layered. I love layered stories. And I really enjoyed learning about the culture and clothing and food of each House. Is the main character very deep? No. But the story's pace is quick, the characters engaging, and the plot unique. I suggest giving this book a try.
