This book was wonderful. it had soo much depth to it; there were so many things that happened. As you read, you understand and feel more connected and with the chararcter and entwined with the story as well. I Love Dahlia's kick but attitude even though it doesn't appear much in this novel, because the whole point of this is to show that her powers have serious repercussions that inhibit her abilities both physically and mentally. This story also takes you throuh the changes in the characters' emotions. I love how Nicolas (usually a cold-blooded killer) can turn into mush just at the sight of her, his love for her is like an obsession. And he knew what he wanted almost immediately--her. forever by his side. Soo romantic. XD Don't get me worng there's also some humor in this book, I was sated and content when I finished reading, because Dahlia and Nicolas went through a lot on this adventure; it was not one of those short quick reads that I thought it was, at all. :] IT would probably be rated a 4; but since it was different from my usual reads it rated a 5 for me.
