I hadn't read anything about Thea Harrison before, but the blurb of this book got my attention so much that I couldn't resist any further. At first, it was a bit hard to read because I found the plot being a bit slow... It got me a good hundred pages to be really involved but, after that, my read quickened and I started to understand characters and backgrounds better. Of course, there's still a lot to learn to have a clearer vision, but I'm positive more answers will come with the second instalment.
From the moment Mary encounters (has been rescued by) Michael, it's clear it won't take long before something happens between the two of them, but the process may not be that simple after all... Mary is stronger than everyone thought her to be (probably even the reader) and she seems to gain memories (and, who knows, perhaps something more) of her previous lives pretty fast, but what if a past event makes Michael appear like the bad guy? Embrace yourselves, my sadness was towards him more than Mary!
The plot is complicated but very dark and fascinating, I want to know more about those creatures, their abilities and reincarnations. And, after such an epilogue, I seriously can't stop myself from reading book two!
