I got this book and read it in the space of 2hrs - I initially wanted to read it slowly to savour every bit of it, as it's been some time coming, but it drew me in so totally that I put everything else aside.
What can I say without giving away too much of the plot/spoilers? Well, it's emotional, it picks up right where the last left off, and we see how much Georgina's friends do actually care for her, and how they are there for her. I'm talking about Cody, Peter, Roman, Carter, Erik and yes, Jerome her demon-boss - all of them really go out on a limb for her when needed.
It was a very emotional book for Georgina, Maddie, Roman and Seth, and I am so glad that in my eyes, Seth managed to redeem himself. There was heartbreak for more than one character and the death of a character that we've seen in all of the books, but so much more is now apparent i.e. how Georgina's past is present in her present and that certain people are more than they seem/not quite who we think they are. Certainly the intrigue is subtle, but I was glad to have some of my perceptions confirmed...
A lot of the book takes place in the realm of the Oneroi, into which Georgie has been sucked against her will (she kept getting visited by a Siren-like entity that fed on her unhappiness and wasted love), so there are flashbacks to actual events in Georgie's past, visions of alternative events and we even get to find out the identity of the man in her dream where she is a mother of a baby girl, in her house with a garden and a white picket fence, with her two cats...and I for one was not disappointed. Yes, it was a dream sequence, as previously shown by Nyx in another book, but despite Georgie's conviction that love, marriage, HEA and kids are not for her, we kept getting told that people's futures can change...so there's hope that Georgie will get her HEA, whoever her love interest turns out to be.
The next book, out some time in 2011, is the last in the series and I for one cannot wait for it.
