~ Longer Review @ Imagination Complex

I didn't like the romance much and the main protagonists hadn't appealed to me as much as I hoped for.... but everything else was BRILLIANT! Great story and lovable characters! It's one unforgettable novel filled with mystery, horror, & tragedy.... and humor, love, & hope.
