I liked this book, despite the disjointed writing style. It was distracting, when one had to reread scenes to understand what had happened.
That aside, It was a wonderful tale and Colin and Savi were a great couple.
They are the total opposite to each other in every way and love is what binds them together.
I loved Colin. Here's this stunningly beautiful, and absolutely vain creature who cares for nothing but himself and is not ashamed to admit it. And the only people he'd call friends are Lilith and Hugh from 'Demon Angel'. And then he meets the irrepressible and curious Savi, foster sister to Hugh, who changes his life after 200 years as a vampire... and he falls hard for her but alas they cannot be together.
They cannot have eternity, because his blood will kill if he changes her and he, even though he doesn't want to, cannot be faithful to her because of the blood-lust that overcomes him when he has to feed.
Colin cannot take what he needs from her on a daily basis, since she is human and would die.
Savi loves him desperately and for both their sake she agrees to give Colin a month for them to be together. Only one thing she ask off him is that is that he be faithful to her during that time. The only way he can, is to drink animal blood. But even knowing this will weaken him, he accept, since he cannot bear to be without her. He hides his despair not knowing how he's going to let her go after a month. You feel their pain, knowing their time together is short.
Theirs is an intense journey and I waited impatiently, hoping that they'd find a way to overcome this heart-wrenching problem. At times it seemed as if all is lost and there's no hope.
When Savi is attacked by rogue vampires and then changed by a Nosferatu, their short time together abruptly comes to an end.
This book made for riveting reading, and how they find their way to be together was so simple but yet the hardest thing to do.... a truly great story.
A previous reader did not care for this type of book.
Yes, this is a romance between a British-American and Indian-American. I don't think the author hides this fact at all! A pity you gave up so easily because you have a problem with this kind of pairing. You missed a great story! Yes, it was different because of the heroine's background, but it made for great reading.
I enjoyed all of the Guardians books, but this has to be my favourite in this series thus far.
