This book is poetry in a novel form. From the very first sentence, I was hooked. A haunting mystery and a beautiful love story that shows love has no limits. Fantastic imagery, beautiful language, this book is amazing.

I loved this book more than I can really say. It was very confusing at times, as I put the book down for a day or two and the characters' names got me disoriented. HOWEVER, it mattered little, if at all. I just kept reading and felt myself being absorbed into the book. I will definitely read it again to get an even better grasp of the storyline.

I've recommended it to so many people already, including my dad, who said the cover looked soap-opera-ish. The title and the cover art are misleading. The book is simply a mystery about a strong-minded woman determined to find her mate.
