I really enjoyed this spin off from the Evernight series. It goes into a lot more detail about balthazar, who was probably my favourite character. Really hope there are more!

Balthazar is like, so amazing! I love him so much. He was always my favourite and when Bianca didn't pick him I was like, "WTF?" But I'm happy that he got someone. ;)

I think I liked this one better than the ones after Evernight. Balthazar gets a little respect here, and Skye is no sissy.

I REALLY enjoyed this book! I think that it was a Great Book, Great Story, & an Awesome way to start off this series. I always rooted for Baltazar. That's not to say that I rooted for him over Lucus & Bianca, but I really loved Baltazar's Character & wished something positive would happen with him. Plus, I like the fact that you learn more of his history.
I also like that there is an apparence by Bianca in the book too! I hope their will be some more inter-connecting story lines that make it possible for Lucus & Bianca & a few of the others to have some parts to play in Baltazars future..

All in all, I enjoyed this book! (Finished it in a day.) & I am looking forward to book #2 of this series.

This story starts off with an action packed scene and a fabulous encounter with Skye and Balthazar. I really enjoyed these two and the way in which they both compliment each other as characters. They got each other, they helped each other and of course their falling for each other was my favorite part of this story. These two characters were written in way that made them realistic, they were flawed and I liked being able to understand them. Claudia allowed me to understand what drove them, and what made them make the decisions they did, and in Balthazar's cause what was holding him back.

I loved the historical parts of this story that came in the form of Balthazar's flashbacks. They worked well for the story and it gave me a glimpses into the person he used to be and what made him the character he is now. Not to mention it also provided the history of Balthazar, his sister and the other characters that are in this story who are after Skye. Skye's unique power also played a huge role into the flashbacks. Through everything that happens in this story between Skye and Balthazar, I loved the way they learn to trust each other, help each other and the way they fall in love with another. I felt like everything was well paced and flowed perfectly for this book.

The romance was awesome! It was snarky, hot, and sometimes hilarious. Skye can definitely hold her own and dish it to the often times stubborn Balthazar. He also dishes it back in a different way and I seriously loved the interaction between the two of them. Their relationship was at times sweet, hot, and other times completely enjoyable to watch how it grew. No matter what they said or how they acted it was obvious to there was more than just flittering going on between the two. Their choices and their actions spoke volumes in what they were both willing to give up for the other. Their love for each other was well written and really just a sweet romance.
