Kind of dull
on October 17, 2011
Most reviewers really enjoyed this book, but I felt as if it was rather dull.
Too much of the plot hinged on events that were poorly explained. This would be fine if we were a couple of books into the series, but this is the first book. Who is Lucien? Why is he after all of Ava's bounties? The alien themes were woefully underexplained. Instead of the author taking the time to show us two characters falling for each other, we get the old "one look and I knew we were soulmates" thing, probably the most tired device in paranormal romance (wait, there's also our powers combined make him super-powerful -- which also shows up here).
I felt as if I was dropped into the middle of a story -- and things never got clearer. A chapter or two set in the 29th century might have helped make this feel like a more cohesive story.
