I think this one is my favorite so far! I love Cade. He is humorous but masculine and sexy. I love imagining his accent, (yeah?) and the interaction between him and Holly if fabulous. At the beginning, Holly is a studious, nerdy woman with OCD. Then she and Cade begin this long trip to try to get a certain sword to help Rydstrom get his kingdom back. And boy, does the relationship take a sharp turn! So does Holly. It's exciting and stimulating, and I found myself rooting for both of them throughout the book. Cade sort of reminds me of Bones from the Night Huntress series. (can I say that?) I recommend the whole series, but I know I'll think of this one even when the series is finished.
