    Argh! I tried, I really did, but I just couldn't get into it. I had a hard time getting into the first one, but in the end I enjoyed the characters and the world that was created so I decided to finish it despite my desire to stop.

    I think two factors played into my rating:

    1. I could not connect AT ALL with Payton or Simon. I found them to be completely uninteresting characters. Well, I liked Simon a bit. I'll admit to that. And even Payton I liked at first. He was a kick-ass hacker and I liked that. But as soon as he married Simon, he was nothing more than a 'wife'. And don't even get me started in how they accepted their marriage! First it was impossible then there they were, getting married and voila, the people accepted them.

    2. The time frame within the story. Really? They fell in love, solved the big conspiracy behind the kidnapping and changed the planet's view on homosexuality in that small amount of time. Nope. Too much, too fast.

    I enjoyed the world on planet Englor, I had no problem with that. I like how the author went about describing all the aspects of the world - from the physical setting to the political aspects of it. Actually I think that the fact that homosexuality was not easily accepted there added to my enjoyment of the story since it differed from the previous book and added a sense of tension to being discovered. But really, did they have to go at it publicly so much? It was like they wanted to get caught even knowing what the Queen had planned for anyone who engaged in such relationships.

    By the end I was disappointed in how it all turned out. There were still things unresolved which I'm guessing are addressed on later books. I am sad to say that I am not looking forward to reading more of the series. I truly like J.L. Langley's writing but this book left me flat.
