One thing I really liked about this book was the fact that Cara was introduced to this mythical world she had no idea existed, and instead of readily accepting it and moving on she was quite unable to accept it, which seemed more realistic to me. I liked the characters of the book and felt like they each had their own personalities. I wish the first book had revealed more to Cara about her true nature but I did like the cliffhanger that ended the book and am interested to see where the next book ends up.
I was a liitle concerned with the beginning of this book as the author constructed some of the background for the main characters, but once that was done, the story took off and kept me captive way past my bedtime 4 nights in a row. And left me wanting for more.
I should clarify I am not a young reader but pushing the near side of sixty and mainly read sci-fi military and space exploration. However, this book has just the right blends of romance, intrique, action, gore, and science fiction with immortals and mystical powers to satisfy the needs of this reader.
The two main characters, Cara and Eamon, are not involved in the typical romance and must search themselves, and others, including some nasty immortals, to find thier way. Yet, there is no guarantee they will come together.
I look forward to the next book in this series and I will purchase it shortly after I post this review.
I look forward to many more books by Ms. Croft.
Some things were a little too predictable and I don't like predictable. The thing that bothered me the most was that too much was given away in the author's description of the book. She gave away an important spoiler and I was left disappointed that I couldn't find it out myself. I had found it while adding it to my GR list. Even with these little "hiccups" I still liked the book, but I'm not sure I like enough to get the next one. My mind isn't completely made up on that yet.
Lyn Croft, you rock, I salute you!
