    3. This was a very interesting read. I hadn't read a summary before I started on it, so it was a bit of a surprise. But everything seemed to fit and was believable. The author was brilliant at setting moods and I loved the overall feel of the book. It's one of those ones where you think you know where it is heading, but have no idea of how, then you start to doubt a happy ending at all! - not going to spoil it. But give it a read, it can be done in a single sitting!

    4. This is a dark, romantic, almost brooding love story. About love, loss and what someone would do to get that lost love back again. How cruel, how disparate, how compassionate we are when we want something. I wanted to know Tad but I understand why he was written the way he was. This is really about Derek and Kellen.
