This book really grabbed me in the beginning! Whoa! And I loved seeing all the other characters show up. But the actual romance between Jasmine and Adam really falls short. It's like an accident that happens as a side story to the rest of the action. I loved the action, but needed more for their romance. All that happens between them is that Noah pairs them together to hunt foe Ruth, and when we next see them together (almost), they discover they are Imprinted. They decide it is useless to fight the Imprinting, so there, we're done. Period. Hmmmm...could have used a bit more there. But I still love the series and hope it's not done!

Helpful Score: 1
I re-read the other five books before starting this one. I had forgotten how much I liked them.
This starts out with a bang. It's 13 years after Noah, and the whole of Nightwalker society is falling apart. Teenage Leah, the first Demon of Time, feels compelled to alter time by bringing Adam from 400 years ago to the present day.
That part of the book grabbed me and held on. It slipped some from there. I felt that Jasmine gave in a little to easily. The whole of the polt wrapped up without enough conflict.
That said, I still couldn't put it down. This one goes on my keeper shelf with the other five.
