Has anyone read this new one from Maya Banks?  I am debating whenter or not to purchase it, however I am torn because I didn't like the last one she wrote. 

Any suggestions?

I thought it was good but not good enough to keep or buy.  If you?re thinking this book is like her erotica novels then the sex is very tamed in comparison. The interaction between H/H is okay and I wasn?t really that satisfied with the ending. Honestly, I say if you have it in your WL then just wait for somebody to post it you.

Interesting, Marjana....I was lucky enough to be really low on the WL so have it in hand, but of course I haven't read it yet! I love love love Maya Banks.

I liked it alot, it's more of a story about rebuilding a relationship than it is about suspense or romance

here is my review of it

 It was a refreshing read for me because it was not erotica.  It's on my keeper shelf.

I like most Maya Banks books and this one in particular I was really looking forward to.  As the first book in a new series, it grabbed my attention quick.  It's fast pased and action packed....I found myself having a hard time putting it down because I kept wanting to find out what would happen next!  Although I don't consider it a keeper (already mailed my copy to another PBS member), I'm still really looking forward to reading the next books in this series when they come out.
