Who am I?
Why did Gloria love this book?
Reverse Harems are not typically a genre I read, but since I know the author well, I made the exception.
I thoroughly enjoyed book 1, especially since she came up with an actual reason reverse harems were necessary to the otherworld cultures involved. In book 2, we get to learn more about the paladins and Crystal. Her true birthright revealed, Crystal is going to fight for the throne—not for the power or prestige, but because she loves the paladins and wants to save them from their current fate.
Realistic world problems, realistic politics, and other problems abound that will take effort rather than sugar-coated easy fixes. A fantasy that works and has consequences. Loads of surprises, which just adds to the fun.
