This was, by far, my favourite story in the collection. Absolutely wonderful characters, intriguing world-building (that I would love to know more about in future stories *hint-hint to the author*), and an incredibly sweet, heart-warming, and emotional romance. I have to admit, I was getting really anxious towards the end...so afraid that it might have a sad or bittersweet ending, but it didn't (thank God). The ending did make me cry, though, but in a good way. :) It's worth it to buy the anthology for this story alone. Highly recommended!
