This was a great story. I am not a huge fan of Romance novels and I really don't read them much. I didn't realize that this book was a Romance book, if I had know it I would have just put it back down and not thought another thing about it. But I didn't know that it was a Romance book so I began to read it and once I realized that it was Romance I could not put it down. It turned out to be a really good book I am glad that I began reading it. Love the ending. :)

It's about a witch that is to esca

I didn't put in a journal entry on Bookcrossing after I read this, so this is from memory.

This is a quick little read, and quite enjoyable. An immortal witch gets found by a grieving widower. And while this shows as the fourth in a series, you don't need to have read the others to understand (I haven't read the others, and still enjoyed the story). A cheesy romance novel, so don't expect much more than pure entertainment.

The lead female character, despite being a serial killer, gets off unscathed and gets everything she wants. There's no real conflict--the semi-villain is squashed flat by a collapsing roof before she can do any real harm. Overall my least favorite of the series, but at the least the two main characters didn't fall in love instantly like happened in the first novel "Eternity"

Amazingly well developed story in under 100 pages. There are authors out there that can't fully develop their storyline and characters with 4 times the amount of pages. Great Story! Great Characters! Great Read!

I loved this story. The overlying themes were ones that aren't often shown in current literature, where more people are worried about wereanimals and vampires. Parts of the story were predicable, but other parts weren't as obvious.

It was a good story and flowed well.

This was a good book, considering that at the end of “Destiny,” when we are introduced to Puabi, we find that she is not a “nice” person and don’t really want to get to know her. This was a short novelette, which was originally in an anthology. This is the fourth story in the line of the Immortal High Witches. I think it is very hard to make a great story when the author is given so little space for character development and plot progression. This is a good try; not great, not bad, just good.

Amazing. You go through the series hating her and then you see her from a different light. She is lacking in the softer emotions, and so finally with the death of his wife, the two halves of the soul can come together and she sees the error of her ways. A bit too easy a solution, but well done. And still, evil is out there, waiting to tear these two apart too.

I'm not one for such short stories, and I have to admit, I wasn't even really interested in Puabi's story, but I am so glad I read this! I loved it! The twist at the end was so cool! I wish there were more books in this series. What do you think, Ms. Shayne? Could you give us another? Maybe Gabriel's story? That would be awesome!
