After my first experience with reading a new writer's first work, I was a little scared of what this novel might be like. But my fears were premature, because this little novel is very intriguing. The beginning quickly got me involved with the prophecy and interested in what was going on. I knew there was some mystery to Alessandra's life, and I was compelling to continue reading more. With the introduction of James, I was intrigued and hooked.

However, somewhere in the middle the storyline slows down and gets heavy with everyday kind of interactions when they arrive in Scotland, which makes it harder to read through, especially after the quick pace in the beginning. For example, Ally is supposed to be in danger, yet James has time to go on a 3 day excursion to by her a horse? This is a moment where the Romance side of the Paranormal Romance is just really bogging down the storyline, but as I really do not read much "Paranormal Romance," maybe this is what is normal...?

Overall, the plot line is good--it keeps your attention--but to me, it is missing the substance that really compels a story forward. Somewhere in the middle, the excitement and intrigue gets lost in the "romance" part. But the ending is a definite cliff-hanger.

This book is probably closer to a 2.5. There were some intriguing elements in this novel that compelled me to finish it, which is more than I can say for some other novels I have read. Plus, I really did enjoy the dialogue between Ally and James. But I just cannot give it a 3 because the second half was not compelling enough for me. But maybe true Paranormal Romance fans will love this novel!
