While I enjoyed the first book and did purchase the second my main complaint is this. It took too long for the story to really get going. I came to a point about 300 pages in where I was just frustrated and went to the last 150 pages or so to finish it. I am an avid reader and love long books as long as they keep my interest. But when you pretty much know the who, what, where, when and how of the plot after the first third of the book--well you just skip ahead like I did. I did go back and skim the middle of the book and felt that I really didn't miss anything by skipping it. I also have a problem with the heroine making stupid choices especially when it drives apart her marriage. It reminds me of those insipid romance stories with all the simpering angst when you know they are going to end up together. I still think Kim made the wrong choice because she did not consider her husband nor her children. I understand about miracles however I don't think we should take such HUGE risks and rely on miracles to see us through--rather self-centered. I don't like knowing what is going to happen. I enjoy the mystery and suspense of a tale. I don't like to know what the antagonist(s) are thinking or planning for the same reason. I haven't decided if I will puchase the next book of this series. I really want to because the plot line is solid and interesting but I also don't want the frustration if it is going to have the same issues that this one has. So if you like paranormal and basically knowing what is going on from protagonist and antagonist and being frustrated by the hero/heroine making stupid choices, then this is the book for you. I am sorry because I was SO prepared to love this book.
