|Shadow of the Knife (Celaeno, Book 1)|
by Jane Fletcher
Well-written, the plot of Shadow of the Knife is interesting to follow and keeps the pages turning from beginning to end -- however, it's not a happy romantic story. There's a lot more death, violence, upsetting scenes and uncertainty than certain happiness or romance, although there are moments that can be seen that way and numerous relationships between women are shown, including happier ones. In fact, the setting exclusively contains women and mentions 'birth mothers' and 'gene mothers'.
