Confronted with yet another challenge to prove she is worthy to become queen, Sariphi must now entertain the mysterious Duke Galois upon his visit to the palace. But will learning niceties and dance steps be enough to win over the duke, who is rumored to be a fearsome warrior with a burning hatred for all things human? Or has Sariphi been set up to fail her w ay out of the palace and the beast realm for good?
Sariphi is dwelling on the hatred between humans and beast kind after the events of the previous volume, meanwhile Anubis pretty much fully hates her now and decides to step up his campaign to stop her becoming Queen and get rid of her.
Her next trial is to host a guest at the palace who's coming to see her as they couldn't make it to her previous get together. Said guest is Duke Galois who hates humans. I can't say I was all that surprised by this development, but I was curious as to how it would play out.
Sariphi has her work cut out for her, she has to get ready for it all, and we get to meet with a couple of new characters in this volume, obviously. Galois and Joz. We do have a couple of tense moments, but ultimately Sariphi pulls through and the twist wasn't all that much of a surprise as I'd been on to it from close to the start. She once again proves herself worthy with some flowery words and lives to annoy Anubis another day.
I'm beginning to find this series a little bit repetitive and Sariphi seems to have no problems overcoming each thing that's thrown her way.
