“Ciarrai is running away from a past that’s still breathing down his neck. Jack has no past, his memory wiped in the accident that killed his parents. They meet and their lives move forward like stones skimming the surface of the water, dipping into memories that want to surface and those that want to lie buried forever.

I'm the BIGGEST fan of Chiarrai <3

Nephylim is known for her love of beautiful male characters, look at Silver from Enigma series... But in my mind Chiarrai is the most beautiful of them all. He is special to me for... let's just say for some very special reasons.

The start of the book is so sweet, so cute, so pure. It lulls you to love Chiarrai and his gentle way with his little brother. It also introduces us to the fairy tale that is a key to this story.

After the sweet start EVEYRYTHING goes...more

The story, like the fairy tale in the prologue is simply magic!

Nephy put them together, discussing t...more

I wondered thru a lot of this book if Jack and Ci were going to make it. Sometimes they clicked perfectly well and then others I thought that they were way too far apart. I wanted to slap Ci's mom and brother and I wanted to hug Jack's aunt and then pout behind her back about what a pain in the ass she was...in the nicest way of course. :)

If I had one wish it would be to be a fly on the wall while Ci tries to figure out how to live in the real world. I'm thinking that no matter how much he hates...more
