My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is not a genre I would normally read or be drawn too, but I agreed to review a copy of the book I received from the author in exchange for a fair review. I enjoyed this book to a point - the writing was good, the storyline moved along well and the were well developed and the author did a great job of writing about all their various phobias. I also really liked the dynamic between Danielle and Balen. Things that lowered the review, it was difficult to keep all the characters straight, the plot was convoluted and hard to follow at times and the amount of unnecessary (in my opinion) violence and sex scenes. While this book kept my attention this type of paranormal, fantasy genre still does not appeal to me. I am equating this to how I feel about watermelon - every year I try it, but after one bite I know I don't want anymore. Every now and then I try this genre, because it is so popular, but after one I know I don't want anymore.
In conclusion - if you like this type of novel I highly recommend it, if you don't your probably not going to enjoy this one.
