I'm pretty sure this book has every fantasy cliché on record and a score of romance clichés as well (seriously, there's a scene with a ripped bodice). The way it's all written, though, makes the clichés entertainingly cheesy enough that I enjoyed them. While the world-building is all fantasy genre, the character interactions all belong to the romance genre. The romance between Cahira and Aren is very sweet and tender, with little-to-no angst or drama. However, the identity of the Big Bad is so overwhelmingly obvious, it becomes very irritating that no one seems to recognize it. Well, they say things like "X means well so I'll put up with the gloom and depression that fills me every time I'm in X's company", but Cahira still doesn't pick up on the identity of the betrayer she's been warned about. (It's even worse if you've read the author's other books, because the Big Bad is pretty much the same person in all of them.) Flaws aside, if you're looking for a light, pleasant, slight-goofy read, this might hit the spot.
