Hawksong, by Amelia Atwater-Rhodes
This first book of a fantasy series tells the story of Danica
Shardae, heir to the avian shapeshifter throne. He people and
the serpiente have been at war for longer then can be
remembered, no one knows who the war started, but Danica is
determined to end it. She will do anything- even marry the
prince of the serpiente- if it will bring an end to the killing. The
problem is that both peoples are reluctant to allow a marriage
that will bring peace, and Danica and the serpiente prince, Zane,
are in grave danger.
The writing in this book is not as polished as in some of
Atwater-Rhodes books, but if still quite good. The characters
are interesting and realistic. The setting is good.
It is a nice mix of action and romance.
