Lots of things going on in this book. Paisley dealing with changes in her life and Iskander coming to terms with his lost love and new love. No lags in the story it flowed seamlessly from beginning to end. For me it was a page turner, could not wait to see what was going to happen in the end. Nice to see a glimpse of Durian and Gray again. Lots of good minor characters in Kynan, Emily, Carson and Nichodemus. Nice cover to the book and fits with the storyline. Ms. Jewel is a great storyteller and a master in her genre. I highly recommend this book.
