First a grippe, 22 reviews and all of them are kids playing a sily game. There is not a single, real review. This book has 330 pages. It is well edited. I paid $2.99 for it. It is a stand alone book, has a complete conclusion and other than a lot of sexual talk and insinuated unmarried sex, affairs, illegitimate pregnancies, all with no details, this is a very clean book. Some sub plots just stop. There is no reason to have them in the book, this is very annoying. The same thing occurs with many of the characters. This book turned into the typical romance and it got really stupid. There is quite a bit of violence, and many deaths. The father, his sister, and Italians became very monontonous. So did the heroine's attitudes. She was a grown woman, not a ten year old. I started out liking this book, but before, I was halfway through, I disliked it, by the end, I wished I had never started it. The pointless plot involving Lance, which went nowhere, was the beginning of the end for me. Most of the characters, were under aged, sex starved, man crazy, girls which were very juevenile and unreasonable. For adults. AD

Ok. I can heal your sight if i fill the scratches and missing nerves with shadows. They would become what is missing in your eyes. They would look like a part of your eye, instead of black streaks in your eyes. They would feel the same too. *he pauses* ...there is a catch though...
