The minute I finished this book, I was already looking forward to more from this author. I fell in love with the characters. The plot kept me engaged and guessing to the end, without frustrating me over the mystery of Archer's disfigurement. And the final confrontation was emotionally satisfying.
Miranda and Archer are both used to keeping secrets from everyone, scared to share their hidden powers/sides. Yet they still manage to build a relationship and slowly learn to trust each other. The secondary characters were also strongly drawn and I can't wait to read more about them. I'm definitely going to be reading Ian's story when it comes out.
The pacing was wonderfully done. I never felt a lag and it moved the storyline along well. I also really enjoyed the fact that Callihan managed to keep the nature of Archer's problem from the reader until it was revealed to Miranda. I came up with and discarded multiple theories until that moment and had fun in the process.
Overall, a great book.
