This novel had me in stitches almost constantly while at the same time highlighting the class distinctions of the time. The differences in living conditions were shockingly apparent throughout the novel, adding an extra layer to the story as a whole. I love the contrasts between the different classes and areas. The stark darkness versus the vibrant balls engaged me intellectually, while the romance and the lives of the characters engaged me emotionally. Galen took her well written, engaging story and kicked it up another notch with an unforgettable cast. I appreciate the fact that the cast encompasses multiple social classes, and that the distinctions are very apparent, even if they are ignored by some of the characters. I found that the main characters of the novel really engaged me. They were the type of people that you instinctively want to get to know. Their relationship with one another was also the stuff that dreams are made of. Not only did they have chemistry that leapt off the page, there was also understanding, connection, and real love. This novel is priceless. It engaged me on so many different levels. It will be re-read many times
