It's been a while since I read an instalment in The Elder Races series, but thanks to the author's recap in this one everything came back to mind, and it was like I never left those characters. I also remembered why I was looking forward to reading this book... Khalil, Khalil, you are quite the Djinn! Let's face it, it's not every day you get to read a story with a djinn in it and boy, here Thea Harrison delivers a very great one. The banter between Khalil and Grace is priceless and surely gets the reader entertained, but there's more than that. Their personal backgrounds are very interesting, the more you read the more you discover things that may touch you at times, and soon you realise the event that got them together was just the first of the engaging ones yet to come.
I honestly had a great time with this book, perhaps the events towards the end could have gone less fast, but they didn't put me down in the latest and the end didn't disappoint. In fact—as per usual with the instalments in this series—my curiosity has been piqued and I need to know what is going to happen next, especially since it seems to focus its attention on a couple I really enjoy!
