OMG!Samantha Young, you sure caught me well with this series! Amazing!

I am so involved in the Jinn world and in everything that happens in Ari and Jai's lives that I barely think about something else xD Obsessed much xD
So, of course that I loved this book as well. *grins* :D
It was so amazing to see Ari being faced with tough choices and really heartbreaking situations, yet seeing her fighting and carrying on...
I really wish I had her strength! :)
And I loved the way her relationship with Jai developped! +.+ So freaking hot! OMG! I'm in love with Jai! +.+
He is the exact kind of hero that I love - damaged, battle-scarred, vulnerable yet desperately hiding it, fighting for love and acceptance. *sigh*

I always thought that the way he loved and lusted for Ari was dreamy but now that they are, in fact, together, everything is way more romantic! +.+
Moving on, I was so intrigued by Ari's dark side - the moments when the Seal could take over Ari's body and control her.
It was so interesting to see someone as good and pure as Ari to be tempted by the dark side and see her reaction to the effect of that darkness on her.
Well, I'm not going to say much more because I don't want to spoil things for you but seriously, you should read this entire series.
I can't wait for Darkness, Kindled! :D
