Review in 5: Beautiful, Sexy, Magical, Desperate, and Hard to Put Down ;p

Review: Ok, first off let me say this: Faelan Savigar...how cool a hero name is that?? I love it. Anyway, this book starts a bit slow and ends a bit slow but everything in it is awesome. I can push through some slow parts for an excellent read and this is one. The main characters are still swimming around in my head after reading the book. I feel like I took the adventure with them and I am still breathless from having done so. Roddy and Faelan are desperate for each other and neither of them really know how much the other person really needs them. The reader sees it just fine but this is one of those books where you are yelling at the characters to stop being stupid. It doesn't work, save your breathe, they wouldn't listen.

There is so much passion between these two, I will say that. There is also magic both in the book and in the characters' feeling for one another. There are some WONDERFUL scenes in this book, to include a trip into fairyland and a sort of fairy ball. It is so cool, the wit and vision this author has. There is also some heartbreak in this book. You will almost tear up and yet again yell at the characters. Take a deep breathe, it will be alright. This is one of those books where the author has no problem torturing her characters and taking them to the brink, along with the reader. Can you ride along?
