This book is the perfect example of why writing doesn't make a writer, even taking talent out of the equation.
This is the difference between a flat tire and Earth, we are talking about depth, colors, nuances. All things this book sorely lacks, togeth

Quite an expensive price tag for a self publishing book. It's not a minor point as I felt it needed a strong beta reader or a better editor. World building wasn't good enough for me (and I was puzzled by descriptions like ' lithe as a cat' when

Pretty boring. A story about nothing with nothing to talk about because nothing happened.

Yes, all those glowing reviews aren't wrong. This is a lyrical tale of love (almost) lost and found.

Surprisingly and unexpectedly good.

UF-lite. Light world building, light characterization. Plot was intriguing enough, but it was wasted a bit given the lack of those two other main points. Flat MCs. Still an easy, pleasant read.
I might keep reading this series, but I'll have to think

Romance-light, as Casey's review correctly says. It's a NA Urban Fantasy that tacks a mate bond on the heroine, but as NA goes it's at least light on the silliness too.
