Raphael was an ass. :/ I did think he became more likeable near the end but I was already so pissed off at him. How childish was he for hurting Andrea purposely because she hurt him. Plus the fact that he saw nothing wrong with doing that. Like he was in the right. =(
But Andrea was awesome. ^-^
I wouldn't mind a second book with these two. Who knows, maybe I'll like Raphael more. That is what happened with Curran, I didn't like him in the first book very much but he grew on me. =P

I actually wanted Andrea to end up with Roman, he was such a great character.
Raphael makes me so mad, he's such a spoilt brat, I would have liked for him to have given a proper apology instead of just saying he was an idiot. I wanted him to agree with Andrea and say he understood what she went through - I wanted a long groveling explanation and apology.
I thought him stabbing Andrea at the end was done so casually, he didn't even seem that bothered by it - I would have liked to see more regret, torment, pain and hurt by what he had to do, he was just so blase about killing the so called love of his life. I'm still pissed that they didn't kill Michelle.
Maybe I would actually like him if they had another book because it took me a while to like Curran too.. when he was strangling Kate and made the shapeshifters intimidate her, I absolutely HATED him but now I love him.

IKR, I so wanted Andrea and Roman together. Or maybe something like Andrea starting to date Roman and Raphael having to work really hard to get her back.
I think that pissed me off more was that there was no grovel scene but just "I'm sorry, I'm an ass" shit. Seriously, after all he did and he gets away with it that easily. I was so mad when everybody wanted Andrea to fight for Raphael. Raphael should have been fighting for Andrea.
Yeah, so wanted Michelle to die. Anyone who can torture someone like that especially a child, needs to die. You're right, Raphael should have said something about going after them and getting her when she wasn't around her family.
Haha, yeah Curran from the first book wasn't very likeable but I started to like him in the second. The choking scene was horrible. =/ But I so love him now. =)

Why the hell was everyone telling her to fight for him after the stunt he pulled on top of all the cruel things he said to her?! Grrr..she let him of way too easy.
I would have thought RaphaFOOL would want to kill anyone that tortured a child especially if that child was Andrea - seriously him, Andrea, Kate and co don't even blink when they kill other people for less but then out of nowhere he lets Michelle go without promising to kill her when her kids aren't around..Seriously WTF?! What's with the sudden 180 change?! It just made me think that RaphaFOOL didn't really love Andrea as much as he claimed.

I seriously was dying when Kate was telling Andrea to fight for him. WTF Kate! Seriously? I agree that Andrea let him off way to easy. Damn, I was waiting for a big grovel scene and it never came. T-T How Raphael acted a lot of the time reminds me of a spoiled child having a temper tantrum. Not a good view to have of a hero.
Yeah, seriously, they should have taken Michelle into custody, or something and let the rest of the family go. I mean seriously, you going to let someone who tortured a child just leave with her family to go maybe torture another child. =( The epilogue should have been of Raphael and Andrea hunting Michelle down.

I wanted to strangle Kate when she got all up in Andrea's face about fighting for that douche. And then Andrea's idea of 'punishing' Raphael was too dress sexy and kiss him at the party they went to..WTF?!
I would have loved the epilogue if it had Andrea and Raphael hunting down Michelle..that would have been perfect.

IKR!! Asscancio and Raphafool get away with everything and their still worshipped by all the women - ugh. If they were ugly or were women they would be HATED. Can you imagine Julie doing the things Asscancio does?? I'm really hoping Julie and Asscanicio don't get together, I noticed that they had the type of banter that usually leads to romance.
It's always the women that have to give up things and compromise for their men. Kate left the Order and joined the pack for Curran and Andrea had to change who she was to join the pack and be bossed around by a woman who threw down the stairs just so she could show Raphafool that she was finally 'accepting' herself. Please Andrea was happy when she was with the Order..being a knight was who she was, being a member of the pack isn't Andrea to me.
