3.5 stars. I did like it -- the mythology was pretty cool, even if it wasn't completely clear with certain characters -- but there was something missing. I'm not sure what it is, but I needed just a bit more. There were some excellent kissing scenes, but the constant hot and cold between Blake and Brianna [not to mention the constant arguing] sort of took away from how awesome the kisses were. Overall, I really liked the story [I loved the ending!] and I look forward to the next book.
