A little more graphic and violent than everyday romance novels, but very well written and great character exploration. I would reccomend trying this author at least once, but she might not be for everyone.
I bought this book thinking it would be typical chic lit. I generally enjoy them as a form of light reading. In some ways it was chic lit, typical quirky girl who shops too much and does embarassing things (sometimes so embarassing I actually had to put the book down for awhile). But usually the heroine is charming enough in some way to make up for it; this one wasn't. She was stupid, selfish and gutless. I don't want to post spoilers so I'll just say I was disappointed in the end. The only reason this isn't getting just one star is that the actual writing (style, punctuation, sentence structure, etc) was decent.
Based on the movie starring Clive Owen, this is an untraditonal version of the King Arthur story. It does not contain any of the usual magic & has very low key romance. If you liked the movie, I recommend reading the book.
I liked this book but not as much as some of the others in this series. I loved Dark Desires After Dusk (Cade/Holly) so much that I dove right into this one and it just wasn't as good. What can I say, I'd pick Cade over Rydstrom any day.
