Reading this the second time round, I don't know why I was so hard on it.
I had a smile on my face the whole time I was reading it. The strength of feeling between Vayl and Jasmine was so strong, you can feel the love between them, but understand that they have to get their own heads straight before moving the next level.
Dave was so destraught at the fallout from the last book - although his move into alcoholism seemed rather abrupt following his love fest with Cassandra previously.
I missed Bergman, Cole and Cassandra, but it was right for the story for them to take a back seat. So much happening with Vayls former trust.
And Jack? He loves Jaz so much, he fits seamlessly into the team.
