Wow! I just never know before reading a book how I will like it; good, bad, or totally awesome. On a scale of one to five this one rates a ten. This is a relationship novel and everything is included love, lust, hate, fear, friendship, disfunctional family members, and a thread of real magic throughout. Definitely not for those under 18 since the sex is a bit explicit and some of the story includes despair and child abuse. Love conquers all.
I fully recommend this as a great read, understanding that once started it will be impossible to put down. This will go on my short list of multireads.
