There are not words for how much I love this book. Full disclosure: I was a beta, and it's also set in my sandbox (this story is written in the same world as Anchored and Where He Belongs). That said, Aleks wrote such a beautiful novel I'm downright jealous of how well he handled my sandbox; he built a much prettier castle than I ever did ;-p

This is classic Voinov at his finest: dark, gritty, morally ambiguous, dangerous, violent, and sexy as hell. All that plus a genuine romance! If you are a fan of any of these things, I cannot recommend this book strongly enough. Also, it's sooooooooooooooper cheap on pre-sale at SMP, so go--pick it up, and get to read it two days before everyone else. (Well, almost everyone else ;-p) And when you're done, you'll want to read it again, and again, and again. Pure love.

I am getting really impatient here! I have no patience and I want to read the polished, shiny version NOW!

Too bad you guys couldn't have done Riptide in time to grab this one for yourselves!
