I have to say I am OBSESSED with this series. I honestly think I may like it more then Twilight. A lot of that comes from there being more action ;) between Rose and Dimitri then there was Bella and Edward. But also, Rose is such a strong character in contrast to Bella who has always seemed so week. Anyways, this series has made me fall in love with all the characters and this novel certainly did not disappoint. Although I thought I knew the direction the novel was going to go it continuously surprised me. I found that rose was a slightly different character in this novel she seemed depressed and vulnerable and without Rose, Lissa goes a little nuts herself. Read it to find out!!! Only downside is that the next novel Spirit Bound doesn't come out until May 2010 and there is a definite twist and cliff hanger at the end. It's going to be such a long wait. Oh and I also decided to read the whole series over again which took me two days... basically I was up until 5:00am every morning reading because I couldn't stop... that's how good it is.
