The other reviews for this book are wonderfully detailed enough so I won't offer anything other than my opinion here. I read a lot of Paranormal Romance novels but it is quite rare that I feel compelled to write a review on one. Lately I've been somewhat disillusioned with the whole genre, finding most of the stories lacking or very 'samey'. Even novels from some of the most respected PR writers (Ward, Feehan, Kenyon et al) have fallen a little flat. So I was not expecting too much when I picked up Gena Showalter's latest. After having read it, I'm so glad I did. It's a very enjoyable read - cleverly written, fast paced and evocative. I like a heroine with balls and a hero who can live up to her. I like a story that doesn't have a neat happy ever after or at least has some bumps on the road to happiness. Yes there are the same old tried and tested ingredients here - impossibly gorgeous women, alpha males, hot s*x, immortality and eternal love - but I think there's enough originality to warrant the purchase price. If like me you're tired of the same old same old, you should give this a try. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
