4.0 out of 5 stars Very Solid Adventure/Romance, February 24, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Inherit the Sky (Lang Downs Book 1) (Kindle Edition)
I wasn't sold on this book based on the preview that I read. The first chapter seemed a bit awkward, the parents and Caine felt a bit flat, the set up was too easy, I don't feel like I got a good feel for the depression and darkness Caine could have been feeling. And I thought Macklin was a jerk.

But I went for it anyway, I'm a sucker for a good Australian outback tale, and throw in a rough cow-boy type and I'm all in. The characters grew in depth as the story progressed and the transitions showing the passage of time got less awkward, in my opinion, then they where at first.

I think that Macklin and his issues was handled well, there is a fine line between making your 'alpha' cow-boy a big tough guy and making him a stupid jerk, and as we got to know Macklin better I grew to like him. Some of the disagreements and barriers that the couple ran into, who's in charge, who's in control, seemed a little silly to me, a couple of times I rolled my eyes at the fact that they seemed to be having the same freaking fight. But in the end I think that makes this pair an even more authentic couple, lots of couple butt up against the same issues over and over again, and Macklin's fears are valid, and authentic given his life and upbringing.

All in all I liked this book a lot, I was happy with the ending, it did not seem overly forced or contrived to me.
