It was probably because you kept wondering what the deal with Adriana was. What is she? And what is the brothers? Why did they kidnap her? Yeah a lot of questions, and you will keep having questions through out this book, some of the really big questions never get answered so it is good that there will be a sequel to this one because otherwise I would be very disappointed. I like the way Duncan describes the surroundings in the book, sometimes I feel like there is to little of that, but not in her book and she does a good job! I would love to visit New Orleans after reading this book. I also like the characters in this book and the problems that they have to face....more

I really do it is amazing how the author describes love and how we all have soul mates. It is so beautiful. This series is all about true love and how incredible strong it is. Love concurs all and that is very true in this book. Willow and Landen only gets stronger both as individuals and as soul mates in this book but their love will be tested in more ways than one in this book.
Willow and Landen finds out a lot about their past in this book and what their destiny holds in store for them and Willow has a choice to make. Willow and Landen are both very strong characters but even so they can have insecurities and doubts about their role in the world and with each other.
I´m also starting to see Drake in a new light in this book. In insight he was just the bad guy who you really didn´t like, no matter how good looking he is. But in this book you get to know Drake in a way you didn´t before and I just really like the guy and I feel really sorry for him. He really do believe that he and willow belong with each other. I think he is good deep down be the bad circumstances has made him the way he is. I do hope we will get to know him even better in Image and that he will find love and peace at last.
The Author is really good at capturing the different essences of the different dimensions they visit and I feel like I am right there with them. Usually books is about finding love and that first phase but this is story is about a love that have survied centuries and and how that love might possibly save the world one day?
You should really read this series it is really good. ...more
I love the character Aden in this book. He is awesome. He has been through so much but he is very strong in mind, body and soul. I love to read from aI love the character Aden in this book. He is awesome. He has been through so much but he is very strong in mind, body and soul. I love to read from a guy´s perspective. It is fun to read the way he thinks. But there are also some amazing side / supportive characters. One of them is Mary Ann, and you also get to read from h perspective as well which I also love. I like books where you can read from two sides rather than just one. It gives the book more depth I think. there are a lot of supernatural being in this book and the author have given her them her own twist in their abilities and characters. It is like every author has her or his own idea of how a supernatural being is suppose to be. And Showalter definitively has her own definition on some of them at least I have not read them like this before. This is an awesome read and I recommend it to everyone who likes YA, paranormal and romance, because yes of course there is some romance!...more
To be honest I had some difficulties in the beginning with the book. I cant really say why. It just didnt seize my attention. But after a few pages ITo be honest I had some difficulties in the beginning with the book. I can´t really say why. It just didn´t seize my attention. But after a few pages I was hooked. It is a really good story and I love that there are several dimensions and the author is really good at describing the scenery. I really get the feel of the different climates in the dimensions.
Willow and Landen are great characters, but sometimes I feel like Willow is a bit distant in her personality and that makes it more difficult to relate to her and get to know her as a character. She is a very strong and independent young woman with an old soul. Landen is so passionate and full of life, love and happiness and he is also very protective of willow. They have such a sweet love for eachother. The only thing I miss in this book is the first phase in their relationship. You know when they first meet and fall in love, I often think that is the best part. But that has allready happen in their dreams outside of this book, so even when they meet for the first time is like they have allways loved each other and are not at all shy or anything like that. But really after a while it does not matter because the storyline is so good!
This story is romantic, exiting, thrilling and sad at times. It is a great combination that will keep you reading untill there is no more. I truly recommend this book because it is awesome!...more
This second book in the series was just as good as the first. Things really get heated up in this one. So much more happens in this book and just cantThis second book in the series was just as good as the first. Things really get heated up in this one. So much more happens in this book and just can´t stop turning the pages! The characters really develops in new and exciting ways in this book and I love that, it makes the book so much more interesting than if the characters just stay the same because that is not how life works, so that was something I really enjoyed. Aden´s attitude against life changes a lot in this book. In the first book he had this cold acceptance that his life would be very short, but now he has so much more to live for so you get to see a lot more fight in Aden, A fight to stay alive no matter what even though he thinks it is hopeless. And I love this new Aden! You will definitely not be disappointed in this second book in the series. It was an awesome story line and really great characters through out the book. Not a dull or slow moment!...more
Wow This book was amazing! I LOVE Rose! She is so cool and her powers are awesome. This book was well written and the Author really grabbed your attenWow This book was amazing! I LOVE Rose! She is so cool and her powers are awesome. This book was well written and the Author really grabbed your attention right away. I was really intrigued by the story and I can´t wait to read the sequel. And it is always refreshing to read a paranormal novel that is writing about something else than vampires, werewolves and stuff like that. There have been so many of them lately. But does not mean I do not like those novels! I mean who would not love them but like I said: REFRESHING!
Rose is really lovable. She is strong and a very mature young woman. She is very honest and She really believe in honesty and it is something she is trying to live by as much as possible even though she have a big secret of her own.
The guys in Roses life are two very different people and you really feel like you don´t know who is bad and who is good here. It is a mystery that on its own intrigues you throughout the book.
I really loved this story. It was fun, exiting, intriguing, sad and very romantic at times. It is definitively a must read this cold winter....more

It was just as good as the other two in this series. There are a lot of twists and turns in this book and Showalter really keeps you on your toes. You think you have figured things out but then the book goes in an unexpected way and really, The ending is just such a cliffhanger I just don´t know if I can wait a whole year for the next one. The characters in this book really evolve and they all get some interesting personalities. Especially Aden, who really is not himself. Mary Anne is really growing in this book. She gets so brave and strong. I really like who she has become. Victoria is really getting in touch with her human side and I really think she is growing into a really interesting character in this book. I can´t wait to see what Showalter has in store for us with her next novel about Aden and his gang. ...more
This is a very dark book. It is also really good and it keeps you on your toes from the first to last page. This book is the first paranormal thrillerThis is a very dark book. It is also really good and it keeps you on your toes from the first to last page. This book is the first paranormal thriller that I´ve read and I loved it. you get sucked in the story and you just want to know more. There is also love or maybe it is rather attraction we a re talking about here, between Anna and Tyler. My only wish, is for the story to be longer, I did not want it to end so quickly. I really like Anna´s character. She is such a lovely girl. An outcast yes but with a very strong mind. And she does continue to be more and more sure about herself through out the book . She takes the step and stands up for herself and I love that. It was a really thrilling end so I am glad that the Author is planning on a squeal! If you want to read a thrilling story then this is the book for you, it really was great!...more

It was a nice change to read an adult paranormal romance. But this is an adult novel and not suited for young readers. A lot is happening in this book. There are several events that take place during this book and the main dish if you could call it that is love story and the side dish is the paranormal part among other things. This book had a really beautiful love story, but as any good love story there was a lot of obstacles to overcome. I loved Many and Justin! They are both really strong characters and lovable but they do have their insecurities which just makes you like them more. Even though this was a paranormal novel it felt really down to earth and sometimes it is good to not overdue it. I liked it a lot and I found myself not wanting it to end when it did. ...more
