Helpful Score: 1
This is the second book in a series, and it suffers from MBS (Middle Book Syndrome) -- there were some good plot elements, but it was clear that the story was meant to flow from book 1 and set up the events for book 3. As a romance novel, I don't think it was very successful -- the 2 male "heroes" used in sex scenes were William Shakespeare (eww!) and a man who had been transformed into a dog-like beast (double eww!). Shakespeare alternated between quoting his own known works, which was nice, to "inventing" lines from well-known contemporary movies such as Star Trek, Raiders of the Lost Ark and Casablanca, which made suspension of disbelief difficult to maintain. Not recommended to any but fans of this author/series. Note: This review was based on an Advanced Readers Copy provided by the publisher.
