Review in 5: Steamy, Intricate, Comfortable, Fast-Paced, Bandaged Ending

Review: I enjoyed this book as I have all the other books written by Gena Showalter. I hate to say it,  but this series is getting very intricate and all mixed up in my opinion. I feel like I need to re-read the series before I read each next book or I am going to get lost. Could just be that I have the focus and memory of a goldfish though *shrug*

The characters are awesome and well developed over the length of the series. The main characters in this story are great, I love the innocence of Olivia juxtaposed to the crazy that is Aeron and then with Legion thrown in there it's a party. The story moves at a pretty fast pace and I love that Lysander and his brooding intensity shows up now and then. I also think that the ending felt abrupt and slapped together. Just all that happened at the end and then how there was like a 'happily ever after' for everyone it just good to be true. I don't know...what did you think?

I as always love Gena Showalter so much and will continue to read every single book she releases, she is one of my favorite authors. Oh and P.S. This story is the most steamy of the series so far in my opinion....sauna hot!
