After reading the Lux series I was excited to get to this book. This book takes place in the same world as in the Lux series but instead of following the luxen, we get a peek into the world of the Arum. I also should mention that this book is most definitely NOT a YA book ;) Anyways, I must say I was a little disappointed in the book.
I found it a little hard to connect with the main character Serena, just because it was (for me personally) hard to understand how she can after the loss of her best friend and her world being tossed upside down she can just think how she wants to get down and dirty with Hunter. I guess, I I would have liked a little bit more fear or realism from her, After all that she is going through and what is going on around her instead of her lusting after the guy. Something about her felt wrong.Serena's Character doesn't seem to have a lot of growth through the book. She seems the same at the end of the book as she was in the beginning even after all what she faced.
I liked him..... he was arrogant,funny sexy and can be very deadly, but than again he is a arum and that is what he is supposed to be, well at least the deadly part ;) Tho he has his moments of being a creeper. But he seemed to grow and change through the story.
Overall it is a fast read that has some pretty funny moments. But I thought it felt kind of rushed and there should be more to the story between the down and dirty parts . It is most definitely a "romance novel". Some were very steamy and well written and some were pretty cheesy.
Fans of the adult romance books might like it better.
