In the sequel to 'Savage' we enter Christians life 10 years after his first encounter with the mysterious Aiyana and her family. Now he has a family of his own and is, not surprisingly, not fully happy in his married life. We're following Christians life and thoughts as he goes through the physical changes and starts having nightly encounters with Aiyana. What really drags you into the story is the fine balance between dream and reality. The transformations are so well described that one almost forgets that they are unreal. The dilemmas in the story are built upon real life dilemmas related to consequences of not living out your real feelings - leading to both parties in a relationship living double lives.

I must admit that have troubles sympathizing with Christian as he seems to so driven by materialistic values and power that he chooses a life of others' expectations. Why doesn't he just go home to Denmark and stay true to his feelings? He takes the maid for granted in terms of looking after his house and son in his absence, whether it is related to his nightly adventures or his work...

Having said so, it is quite refreshing to read a novel where the main character is not per se a hero ( or even particularly sympathetic for that matter). What I really like about Willow Roses novels is that it is not just another fantasy novel. It is a novel with several layers addressing truly relevant dilemmas in life. I can't wait for the third novel to come!
