Loner Nicolas Trevane volunteers to go and find her. Obviously we know from the outset that Nicolas and Dahlia will come together, but it's wonderful to watch how it develops. Both are so used to solitary existences, that they are shocked by how much they enjoy each other's company. Dahlia suffers the most being in constant company both because she's never experienced it and because of the dangerous effects of her gifts. Dahlia has some great gifts, and when they come together with Nicolas' - sparks fly, both literally and metaphorically. The story has an interesting story line, great action and lots of steam. Nicolas and Dahlia make a great couple and there story was a joy to read. And hey - this is the story that introduces the Norton Twins.(less)

While a traditional alpha male, Gator also has a very sweet and sensitive side and a wicked sense of humor. Flame was the perfect counter to him with a mix of strength and vulnerability and a wit to match Gator's. The action was great, but it was not without tragedy adding an extra layer of drama.
The mystery behind the GhostWalkers continues to unfold and the story poses more questions than it answers, but that just serves to pull the reader into the series even more.(less)

And while I didn't struggle to get through it, I did find myself skimming - and I never skim.
Why didn't I like the book? Kadan. He'd been intriguing in previous books and I was quite looking forward to his story. Unfortunately, Feehan opted to take the character in a direction that I didn't care for. I like a dominant alpha hero who is withdrawn and a bit moody and dangerous - but Kadan went way beyond that. His dominance read like an abusive boyfriend to me, and there is nothing sexy or appealing about that (threats that he wouldn't allow her to leave, telling her what she could and couldn't do and his continual need to make his point by putting his hand around her throat - to name a few). I also found the sex to be a bit over the top and distracting in this one. They were constantly going at it, from the moment they met, leaving me surprised that they some how mustered up the strength and interest to actual solve the mystery.
This has in no way put me off the series, it simply introduced me to a pairing I don't care for. Meh...(less)
