My Thoughts:
Until You was a fast paced read and really drew you in to the story once again I was enchanted by Rosamund's story and the wonderful characters . Although if you have not read the first in the series it probably would be pretty ahrd to enjoy it as a stand alone novel.
My favorite part of the story was the description of the portrait that was painted of Rosamund by Paola Loredano The description of the portrait happened to be the cover art for the book.
Be sure to check back for the reviews for the last two books in the series.
