I instantly fell in love with the writing in this book. Multiple POV usually drives me nutty and is an instant red flag, but Julie and Amanda pull it off effortlessly. Right from the start, the plot draws you in and the subtle details and intricate writing are just icing on the cake. You can tell a great deal of care went into writing this novel - the authors crafted the sentences carefully to fully paint the scenes for the readers.
I have to admit, from the title I was expecting more of a zany romantic romp, something funny and maybe even silly. This book is NOT that. At all. But what it is, is amazing nonetheless. At times, it reminded me of the 60’s show, “The Prisoner,” or maybe even “The Trial,” and I loved that existentialist feel. Megan and Irys both were great characters and easy to connect with. I’ve never had such a strong feeling of wanting to strangle a character as I did with Megan in the last chapter! When you care that much, the writers are obviously doing something right.
I very much enjoyed the adventure of Love at First Plight, and I look forward to reading the sequel.
The converging viewpoints add to the suspense of this fantastic adventure, as we are taken for a ride along with our protagonists only discovering things as they do. The descriptions of settings, dress, and characters are vivid and rise from the page, and for you literary purist, the prose is absolutely breathtaking. I had to read this sample a few times. “The light that poured through the window was as white as ice, but each pane of glass shattered the beams into a spectacle of coloured brilliance. Only with her back to the intensity of the brightness , could she see the prisms that rained down on everything within this holy space.” There were many memorable characters, but my favorite was Acksil, and I can’t wait to see where his character will go in the sequel. Yes, the book did leave you at a cliffhanger, but it was thoroughly entertaining, a solid 5, and highly recommended.
This is one of those must read novels that you absolutely have to finish because it’s just that compelling.

I found Megan to be hilarious and quirky and I liked experiencing what Syliza looked like through Irys's eyes. Both characters felt very real to me and I could identify with both of them on some level, which was a bonus because sometimes I have a hard time empathizing with characters in fantasy books, especially when they are not from Earth or are from the future.
Aside from the two main characters I love, loved, LOVED Thayn and I hope there is more of him in the second book, and Galnar....man, what a freak'n devil (he's even got red freak'n eyes LOL!)
This is definitely worth the read. My only complaint is that it ended too quickly! I can't wait for the sequel. I HAVE to know what happens to Megan and Irys.
