There is something magical about a good romance novel. When I come to the end I always feel so damn happy and I'm smiling like a school girl. I can't help it, I love the "...and they lived happily ever after moments." I know this book will not be for everyone, but I was truly impressed with Kele Moon's talent as a writer! She executed a well thought out novel in a complicated world. I say this book will not be for everyone because there are some taboo subjects in this book because of the vast difference in culture of this fictional world. I love that she took a very complicated family structure and weaved it into a tale that I came to adore.
The characters in this book are stellar! They are talented and complex. The struggle in relationships between the two main characters and their extended family is some of the best writing I've seen in this genre. Now don't get me wrong, I understand the Pulitzer is not going to be going to Paranormal Romance book, however, this book was head and heels over what I expected.
I give mad props to Ms. Moon for making me laugh so hard (tent camping) I cried, and for also gifting me with that wonderful, "Oh I feel so good after reading this book" feeling. There are graphic scenes, taboo subject matters, and excessive drug use which is why I would only recommend this book to adults.
