    I really, really liked this book about 3/4's of the way through.

    I really, really liked this book about 3/4's of the way through. Karou is a great character, vivid, real, like-able. What I liked about her the
    most was her acceptance of her lot in life. Orphaned, raised by some epicly weird dudes (creatures) that she keeps secret, doing the
     little deeds demanded by her guardian, Brimstone, which she doesn't always enjoy but seem exciting none-the-less, and doing a
    wee bit o' wishing magic here and there with some help from Brimstone.

    The author weaves in such a creative, imaginative world right alongside our own. You can feel, hear and see things seeping from
     the pages. The creatures in her house love Karou.

    And there's Akiva. Mm mm mm. Beautiful angel, in all the right ways except his personality. He's hard and cold and distant and
    absolutely yum. It's wonderful to see that exterior begin to crack as he clashes with Karou.

    The ending is epic. A twisted betrayal that unfurls like the sails of a boat as the wind picks up. The story follows a strong undercurrent
    of secrets and lies of a past that isn't what it seemed, and that comes back to haunt both Karou and Akiva. It's an ending that will
    have your mouth dropping open.

    Here's what I didn't like. While I enjoyed the unfolding of the past story immensely and loved how it tied in to the huge epic twisted
    ending, I thought it went on too long...and the writing of the past romance was a tad bit too flowery for my tastes. I found myself raising
    an eyebrow and saying, "Really?"

    The book is a solid 'yes' in the recommendation department.
