    Thanks for your feedback!

    I'm not really sure what to say about this book, mostly because I spent the entire thing very confused. It took me about 150 pages to get all the characters straight, which is a bit much for me, but there are a lot of them to go around, so okay. The whole family disturbed me a bit at first, because they seem vaguely... incestuous. They're aren't! Not really, but they're physically intimate in ways I would never consider with someone I wasn't, you know, sleeping with, mainly nuzzling or even biting necks, but that quickly falls by the wayside as the plot ramps up, and considering the people who raised them, really isn't that strange. Plus there's so many adoptions, can it really be considered incest? (I hope not... but that's another story.) I didn't understand the plot. There were interesting moments, and good tension, and times when I almost felt like I got it, but then it would jump ahead again and I just got lost. Stuff was happening, but I just couldn't follow why. Who were the Royal Guard? The Council? And why do they care what this family was up to? For that matter what the heck is the origin of this family? Some of these questions get answered in part, but I never felt I really got the full story. This is the first of the series, so maybe more answers will be revealed, but between the vague plot and honestly poor editing, I won't be picking up the second one. The positive point in this book was the characters. They really were sympathetic once you got to know them, though that doesn't mean that I liked all of them. They drew a strong emotional response whether that was a grin at their antics despite the situation or a keen desire to smack some sense into them. It managed to keep me reading through 600 pages, anyway. I really hate writing a bad review, but I can't genuinely say I can recommend this to anyone, though clearly with the five star reviews it's garnered, someone has enjoyed it.
