I had gotten this book, and after not being able to finish the first one and then seeing the ridiculous plot twist in the second, decided my time would be better spent finding something with better writing. (Once again, surprise, surpise... more "EVIL"! Shock, gasp, no! :P)
I just wasn't in the mood for reading about a female character who was going to "fall" for a man who was into that "It's okay for me to deceive you, because I love you (yet I'm troubled and have a bad past but it won't matter because you'll forgive me for being a bastard) and yada, yada, yada".
I've read other books by this author years ago and liked them, but sci-fi just isn't her strong point.
I first picked up the first book of the series when I was in High school and after that I had to read the rest of the series.This book has been on my mind ever since then. The story line was tragic and torture yet I could not put it down. The emotions that Varian felt, when he posed as Ryker, was vivid and wonderfully expressive.The love between Varian Saar and Jana Greyson seemed ill fated in the beginning of the book because of Jana's rejection of Varian and her acceptance of Ryker, but in the end their love did triumph even after the revealation of Varian's deception.This book sent my emotions into limbo because I could feel what the characters felt.I can't convey my enthusiasm without degrading the book.
Could Jana have given her love to the wrong man?
Was Ryker really the one who deserved her passion?
Well skilled at pleasing a woman's heart as well as her body, he seemd everything his brother had been and more. In a universe cloaked in stardust and shadows, could Jana ever hope to know the truth?
