I don't want to spoil the book for anyone, so I'm going to stick to generalities. I had high expectations for this book and Singh did not disappoint. The main couple were each emotionally damaged and still managed to make a believable connection. Their stories, past connections and struggles were heart wrenching. Much of the romance was carried out with the couple isolated from others, so there was little chance to visit with past couples. I actually think this worked well with the plot and added to the overall tone. Singh also managed to advance the Pure Psy, Silence and Netmind chaos arcs. Overall a wonderful book and my only regret is that book 13 hasn't already been published.
