More About the Author

What worked for me:
* Loved the way that Suzanne came up with Icarus' name.
* I really enjoyed the fact that Russ' eyes changed colors. I could totally picture it, and that along with his general physical description made me want to swoon.
* I am completely fangirling over the idea that Suzanne had enjoyed supernatural abilities and supah physical skill back when she'd been with her angel lover, but then lost those abilities when he left her. Can you imagine being incredibly strong and fast, having incredible stamina, being able to influence others with your thoughts (and perhaps most importantly, being able to eat whatever you wanted to without gaining weight!) in addition to having an incredibly sexy and skilled lover, and then suddenly not only have you lost your beloved, but you're back to being a "normal", weak human again? Talk about devastation! *scoffs* And Russ wants to rag on her about the fact she's still pining for her former lover. C'mon, wouldn't you?
* She twists! She turns! Like a... twisty.. turny.. thing.. The twist at the end absolutely made this story for me.
What didn't work for me:
* Good Lord these people walked everywhere! While it served the purpose of illustrating that Suzanne was drawing strength and endurance from Icarus, all I could think was that they really needed to just catch a cab or something. Suzanne even mentioned the same thing about 44% in, and there was a reasonable explanation, but even so.Read more ›
Then it happened. The story took a nose dive. It lost me completely. I got bogged down in itself (I think the writer got bogged down in the story.)
I sat it aside 3 times and tried to go back to it. I was unable to make more than a few pages again before I had lost all interest and had to set it aside.
I really had lost all hope for the book. It made me sad, due to the strong beginning.
Then it happened. The story got good again. Not just a little good, but extremely good. It became the page turner I had wanted it to be all along.
Then ending... um. No spoilers, is my belief, but... but... damn. I haven't secided if I liked it or not. I'll see how I feel after I read it again. (Yes, I will read it again.)

I liked the story.
However, I sometimes got the feeling that there was something missing for me to be able to really relate to it.
I enjoyed it. The interesting subject matter made it intriguing. It wasn't religious. It was more of an action / thriller novel.Published on April 7, 2013 by Stephanie
