Overall this book was ok. I enjoyed the books by Lynn Kurland and Sharon Shinn the most. The other two didn't really grab me all that well. If I had only rated this book on the two stories I liked, this would have been a four or a five star rating. I've read all of Kurland's Kingdoms Series in which they talk about the Tale of the Two Swords a lot. I was thrilled to finally actually read the whole story. Shinn's Angel story was very captivating, however I personally didn't like the idea of Angels and Humans coming together romantically. I had to imagine something other than angels to really enjoy the plot.
