I don't mind change, I love it in fact, but when it comes to the series I follow I'd like the writer to stay on track.
I know this book got a alot of Die Hards fans in a huff over the bad reviews from some, like myself...but this was a bad read plain and simple, I don't care how much you like Feehan; eventually you have to come to terms with the fact that this book sucked!
The chants and spells were a total bore. I skipped thru them. Some reviewers compaired this to poetry, okay fine, but if I want poetry I'll pick up Poe or Longfellow. I think it was clear that these songs and chants were filler for the hard back.
The battle scenes went on and on for chapters and then all the healing the two main charaters had to do was just too much. I feel like I need to heal after trying to get thru the book.
Oh, and this Carpathian language crap, who cares? I'm not a Trecky or a Lord of the Rings groupie so I don't need made up languages. Another filler for the hard back.
I never felt for the charaters, and there was no sexual tension what so ever. By the time Feehan got around to the sex 300 pages in I didn't even care if they hooked up or not. Which is a shame considering that this book is a Vampire Romance???
I wish Feehan would just get back to how she was writing the books before, I don't need all the charms, spells, and chants. I also don't need to read about the past charaters over and over again.
If you have not read this series, do not start here, go back to the beginning and work your way up to this one, but if you skip then no worries, you didn't miss a thing.
Oh and why was this a hard back and man I wish I didn't pay 20 bucks for it!
