One of my most highly recommended, "Must Get" books. Incredible!!!, August 31, 2005
Reviewer: Taissa "Tai" (USA)

There are hardly enough words to describe the talent of this woman. She ingeniously drew her characters along, new and old ones, to wrap both serious together in an incredible style. She leaves you bouncing and hopping from foot to foot while you wait to get to the next one, but unwilling to finish her last book as you wish for the story to never end.

That is, that's how it was for me. *Smiles*

Indeed, there are some characters that seem to have no impact on the storyline. But those who see those characters that way have no insight into the amazing storyline of this book. Each person, and each scene, no matter how inconsequential it may seem, lend to the book's overall lessons and the lives of the characters. Melanie Rawn, also, is an author that has no problem (seemingly) killing of her main character; in this way as well she is an incredible author, for doing such unexpected things, especially after getting attached to them, wrenches the reader's heart in sorrow.

And that is the whole point to reading a book--getting drawn in so strongly that you feel as if you are the character at the moment, and you feel as they do, and those feelings change as the book goes on.

Overall, her storyline, character growth, and the in depth information she creates for this knew world is amazing and one of the best. If you are in the mood for an emotionally wrenching storybook that lasts longer than most, or just in for a good read--I highly recommend this book!
