*i really appreciated *really appreciated and Griffin are dynamic characters They fall in love almost at first sight but it takes them very long to vercome their wn limitations and prejudices Griffin is shocked by Allegra s free manners and independence not to mention the fact that werewolves despise vampires Allegra cannot believe Griffin wants to suppress his natural instincts f a predator and expects the same from his sister It takes them long to see that they are really very much alike even longer to trust each Iniquity other at all They don t jump to bed instantly their relationship rings true and is a pleasure to follow in mypinion it was a real highlight f the story I liked little Gemma and her clumsy attempts to imitate Allegra as well it was a good move to make her play a bigger role than that f a supporting damsel in distressThe world building was k perh.

Wanted to enjoy this bookseries and have not been let down my Ms Krinard writing before But this story line just slogged down To many twists to an already complicated plot To many arch nemesis and you really didn t know who was n who s side There was no relationship building between characters and I found it really hard to root for the good guys by the end To the point that I really skim read the last 5 chapters because I couldn t believe the story wasn t endingI will not couldn t believe the story wasn t endingI will not with this series but I will continue to be a fan Gardening with Shape, Line and Texture: A Plant Design Sourcebook of Ms Krinard writing I admit I wasn t expecting this storyline I liked the story but found the time period difficult Just because it s usually a flashback taking me to the time period It was good and I loved the mixesf species and the necessity for it Couldn t get into this book Finally made it through but it was slow moving to me What an irritating book I finished it but was sorry I d spent the time Ms Krinard is a
