To me this book was beautiful in the journey that Rancour,or Rellick is on. He has been on this journey for 1000 years, so his insight to good and evil are profound. He has a deep love for Alix that is selfless and sacrificial, he is a man of honor. I loved the flashback scenes the best and the journal entries from Rellick, it made him honest and easy to admire. Though it is sad at the end it makes sense. This one left me still thinking about it.

Recommends it for: Perhaps Leela.
This book for me was an interesting mixture of the vampire diarys and twilight. It was scary at times, and romantic at others. I guess you just have to finish it to realize how beautiful it really can be.

This was a beautiful book that made me finish in tears. It makes you feel really… accepted at the end.

Littered with grammatical errors, cliché characters, abrupt changes in point of view and terrible dialogue.

Terribly written, just plainly awful story. Beige and vacant.

This third edition has many changes in the story from the first and second editions. A new publisher and new editors helped craft a much better book.

Found a few grammatical errors, and I wish the book had have been longer in order to reach the climax properly and not have such a rushed ending!
