The beginning of this book was slow going for me. I wasn't convinced I was going to like this book at all but thankfully things picked up and I ended up really enjoying myself.
This is supposed to be a "medieval" tale but it reads more like contemporary fiction. The setting is in a more medieval time but the characters do not talk or act as such. Which is fine, but just don't go into this book thinking you are getting a authentic feeling medieval tale.
I didn't love Farrago at first but he grew on me. By the end I was a Farrago fangirl. The book is told from his perspective only, so by the end I really felt like I knew Farrago and understood him more completely. He really is a good guy. :)
There is a fun cast of characters, a bit of intrigue and a happily ever after ending that wasn't completely what I was expecting. I liked that.
