About the Author

Kallysten’s most exciting accomplishment to date was to cross a few thousand miles and an ocean to pursue (and catch!) the love of her life. She has been writing for over fifteen years, and always enjoyed sharing her stories and listening to the readers' reactions. After playing with science fiction, short stories and poetry, she is now trying her hand, heart and words at paranormal romance novels.

Kallysten is such a talented writer that I find I can enjoy reading anything that she has written, even when it is not my preferred genre. When given the opportunity to read this book, I was willing to do so (despite my misgivings) because, although there might be content which made me uncomfortable, I knew the writing would be good. I wish I could say that I liked the content, but I still find it hard to comprehend the appeal. However, I did like the characters and I think I understood their motivations. To be more specific, I felt that I understood Ray's issues, but I'm still not entirely clear on Grace's. Still, she was likeable because her intentions seemed to be focused on giving Ray what he needed and she understood him in a manner that fulfilled him in a way no one else could. She helped him to realize that because he was willing to give her his power he was really the one in control because it was his choice. Ultimately, I would have to say that Kallysten did a great job of conveying to me the potential psychological motivations that could drive someone to pursue a lifestyle that would cause me to run in the opposite direction. I must commend her for that because it takes a gifted writer to compel a reader to identify with and understand characters with whom there is no common ground. For that reason, I must recommend this book. For anyone who may be concerned that the "scenes" in this book could trigger something unpleasant, I don't think anything was too graphic or extreme. There was nothing sadistic about it, and for that I am deeply grateful.
