You will understand this book more if read as part of the series, since Viehl is advancing her story line of the battle with the Brethren throughout the books. However, she adds enough back story that it could be read as a stand alone.Twilight Fall is more intense, and the drama of Liling vs her twin Kane kept me reading way past my bedtime. The focus here was not so much Darkyn vs Brethren as is was the Brethren vs their little kiddie experiments. Liling ran away as a teen from the Brethren training facility after being separated from her twin brother, Kane. Liling's 'special power' is healing and pain relief 'omg walking Oxycontin!', as well as the element of Fire. Kane can control water to the point that he can use it to track someone's passage through it, even in large lakes. He can kill by drawing the water out of a person, leaving them a dusty corpse. Together, their powers clash create monster storms, necessitating their separation. The Brethren told Kane that Liling wanted nothing to do with him, which pissed him off to the point that he now wants to kill Liling. Liling eventually settles as the gardener at the same medical facility watched over by suzerain Valentin Jaus, where they meet. When her picture shows up in newspapers across the country, thus bringing her back to the attention of the Brethren, she is forced to flee for her life with the help of Jaus. As a sci-fi/ fantasy series, the book is fascinating. Dr Alexandra Keller's medical experiments in trying to unlock the mystery of the Darkyn brings out the nerd in me. However, I dislike the fact that Brethren are largely one-dimensional super evil people who are trying to rid the world of the Darkyn for no explicable reason. There is no real depth with Viehl's characters they're almost cartoonish in their classification of Good or Evil. The most compelling of her characters is Alex's brother John, who is struggling between what he was taught of the church, what he has seen, and his own desires of the flesh. He has been present thus far mostly as a side story, although the ending of Twilight would suggest that he is about to take center stage. Overall, I'd give this book 4 out of 5, and say that I like Viehl's Stardoc series much better. *high pitched, wild fangurl squees for Stardoc series*
