There is something about Elizabeth Knox's narration that intrigues me, frustrates me, and enthralls me all at the same time. It feels wrong to only rate this book with four stars considering it is the sequel to my hands-down, all-time, favorite book, The Vintner's Luck, but while I thoroughly enjoyed this book and had a hard time putting it down, I wasn't as moved by this book the way I was its predecessor. I love the character, Xas. It was great to read about him again, but his continued story didn't turn out the way I hoped it would and seemed too sad a lot of the time with just brief, sweet intervals of happiness. I have to admit, I really despised Cole, his lover, a Howard Hughes type, and maybe that had a lot to do with it. I can only hope there will be another book coming, maybe set in modern times where Xas will actually fall in love with someone who is worthy of him and loves him equally in return. (But then, I didn't think Sobran was worthy of Xas' love either!)
