"The Diplomat" is a well written and interesting fantasy book that reads almost as two books with two fully completed main story arcs, each with an exciting climax.

A great read about duty over morals, with a little love story thrown in. Both Rama and Elise are strong willed women and but heads often before admitting their attraction to each other.
