I absolutely love this book. Its about two shape shifting kingdoms who have been at war with each other since the beginning of their kind. Danica Shardae is part of the bird shape shifting kingdom (she's a hawk) and their heir to the throne. Zane Cobriana is a snake shape shifter and heir to his kingdom. Both of these heirs have lost many of their family members and friends because of the war and are desperate to stop it. A suggestion comes that both Danica and Zane should marry each other which to them is a ridiculous because their "cultures" are so different. Its nice to see how at first Danica and Zane marry each other for the sake of their people but over time they begin to fall in love.
