This is a very enjoyable book, though it is very short in length. I had another that was short and the recipient was not aware of the length, though enjoyed the book. This is a fast, easy read, best suited for a day of waiting around for appointments to get over with. Super read without needing a lot of time!!! Just wish for you to be informed in advance.... 84 pages long

Pulling her into his boat, he quickly discovers that she is still alive and much to his surprise she the vision of his deceased wife!
This story is a very romantic story about an Immortal High Witch whose past is littered with secrets. She has eluded death for years and finally she is convinced that she has for the last time. She finally finds what her heart desires when she turns mortal. I would really recommend this story it is a fast easy read.
I know I have rated this book pretty poorly despite not having finished it, but after drudging through the first few chapters, I just couldn't read it any further. I'm sure the story MAY be good, but it is written too "uninterestingly" for me. I had lost interest once the characters had met but tried to continue until I just HAD to stop, and I'm usually a person who tries to finish a book I've started no matter how I feel about it. Other people may like it, but it wasn't for me.
Great reading material. I love Maggie Shayne and this story was interesting and quite a fast read! The ending was very different than expected but it was awesome!

VERY SMALL BOOK. QUICK READ
Very nice story. This is the first I've read of her and it's nice to start out with a small story to see if you like an author.
I loved it! It is a wonderful conclusion of sorts to Maggie Shayne's Immortal series. Readable in one evening!
Excellent-sequel to destiny.

Good story. Very quick read.
A short book, but a very good one.
I havent ever read any of Maggie Shayne's books.. this is a short quick read about an Immortal High Witch.. the twist and turn in the book was quite a surprize to me..
This is a must read. It tells the story of Puabi the dark witch mentioned in earlier book Destiny. In this book she presents the story of an immortal whose existence has centered solely on vengeance and hatred-only to find a second chance at love, redemption-and immortality.
This is an intriguing book that ends very well.
IF I COULD GET MY HANDS ON THE WHOLE SET, I WOULD HAVE A WONDERFUL TIME READING THIS SERIES
