Copy for review provided by the author in anticipation of an honest review

50 words or less: Ciar, wolf shifter and Lord of the Forest, is looking to put long years of way behind him and settle down with the love of his life, Sabine.  Sabine has been cursed, though, to be forgotten by anyone who sees her.  That certainly throws a wrench in their happily ever after.

I pretty much fell all over myself at the opportunity to read this title- fairy tales, evil curses, shifters are here in abundance, so what's not to love?  Sabine met my expectations in every respect and made me happy that I had a review copy of the second book, Kisri, close at hand.  And the fact that there are two more stories coming out in this series?  Icing on a most excellent cake.

I was rooting for Ciar and Sabine from the first page until the last.  They loved each other so much, even in the face of the sure knowledge that even more heartbreak awaited them.  There was seemingly no solution to their quandary, but in the grand tradition of fairy tales, the solution came together beautifully and at the last minute.  The happily ever after was delicious and worth waiting for.

Perhaps the most tantalizing facet of the story, though, was the twist at the end involving Farran, the First Warlord of the Forest and Ciar's second in command, and Iloria, a noblewoman who found herself mired in circumstances way, way beyond her control.  I have it on good authority (Twitter, haha) that we'll get to hear their story in good time, and I for one can't wait.  From a marriage of convenience to true love? Sign me up!

My only complaint about Sabine, and this is one of the highest compliments I can pay a book, is that it was too short.  I wanted more! More!  I could have read a bazillion pages set in this world and it still wouldn't have been enough.  Be that as it may, Sabine was a satisfying story that was easy to polish off in a sort time.  It'll be perfect to revisit after a long day- short, sweet and satisfying.
