I LOVED IT!!!
I have to admit that the initial meeting between Serena and Linc had me a little wary. Linc's reaction to Serena came off as creepy, in my opinion, but as the tale was told, his actions toward her made perfect sense and were transformed from "Ew" to "Endearing."
The whole story, which was written almost entirely from Serena's point-of-view, was very easy to read. That is, the plot was intriguing and the unraveling mysteries kept me turning the virtual pages DYING to know what happened next! The dialogue was very realistic, and I could easily "hear" the conversations being had. The overall narration was an excellent balance of "trendy-slang-speak" and "proper-thoughtful-reverence."
As a result of Linc's actions, I was almost in tears near the end. He is one of my favorite heroes, and I cannot WAIT to read more of him!
While the book didn't really end on a cliffhanger, the story is continued in the next book, SERENITY, which I will most definitely be reading!!!
