There are a few times when political concepts are talked about using language that I don't think people outside our odd Earth 20-21st century would use - I think Vitala talking about small, self-policing communities was the worst example here. Another attempt was made in Iceland, and this one was successful. I loved how Celeste decided to develop her mind and the support her brother provided.

She was used and abused and had the scars to prove it. Prince Rayn has no intention of allying his country with the militaristic Kjallans. Her vulnerability to Rayn was so extremely touching as was her refusal to let him get away with being an ass.

There are as many ways to write a novel as there are novelists, but for me an orderly, systematic schedule, like what I was accustomed to in the business world, worked nicely. But where Raby differs is in the way she writes her characters.

Often in romance like this, you get a bad, playboy male interest, and while that is perfectly fine, I really like how Rayn isn't like that. Despite his reluctance in engaging and interacting with Celeste, I did like that when she started to break through his walls. In this case, it totally worked. They bombed the lava from the air.
