This was the same in quality as the other books in this series. I loved that Lucian, always described as so ugly and hideous, is so attractive to Anya. I liked how she treated him and how much she cared for him. I wasn't in love with the ending, I don't like Anya that much, she's rather annoying, and as with all the books in this series (maybe all Showalter books?) the editing is non-existent. So many malapropisms, poor grammar, and typographical errors, it is very distracting. But Showalter writes a compelling story, so despite the distractions, I was able to enjoy the book.
