As an Aiken(Shelley Laurenston) fan, I was crazy excited to review this one.... I bought the book as soon as it was released, and devoured it as fast as I could (which RL made more difficult then I'd have liked). Now that I've read the book though, I can't seem to figure out what I thought of it... I can honestly say I didn't hate it. And I'm relatively positive I didn't dislike it. The problem is that I can' decide if I actually liked it or not. I think the confusion comes from a shift in the tone of the story... It seems to start off more lighthearted, and then got a bit darker then I'd expected midway through the book. Add to that, there are a number of bits from various characters perspectives (some from previous books, some not), which made the overall book longer then the other books in the series... and while for the most part said bits added to the overall story, there were just so many of them!I liked the heroine and the hero of the story, that I know for sure. And most of the secondary characters (and there were quite a few) And I laughed quite a bit, so that's always a plus... But I'm still up in the air about whether or not I actually liked this one.... Either way, I'm eagerly awaiting her next release (Just ordered [Book:Belong to the Night|6453240] :) )!
