This book won the 2003 RITA for best paranormal romance and it deserved it. I have read all Susan Grant's other novels except her latest 'The Star Princess', and she is, in my opinion, one of the best paranormal romance authors around. In this book she uses her technical knowledge of aviation to create a gripping tale. For the first quarter of the book, it could almost be a straight sci-fi novel, and when the romance gets started she never falls into the mushy sort of writing that characterises some romance novels. But she still manages to make the romance central to the story without losing the excitement of the rest of the plot. Her hero and heroine are sympathetic and likable, her secondary characters interesting and believable, and she keeps you guessing about the plot right up to the end. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes paranormal romance. I am looking forward to reading the Star Princess when I get it.
