I picked this up to see if is was reasonable for my daughter (12yrs). Well it sucked me right in. I don't normally read paranormal books, they aren't really my thing (I did read twilight but thats it). This however is pretty awesome. I will let my daughter read it merely because she is very mature and has read the twilight series. There is nothing in here that made me think she would need clarification on anything. There is chemistry between the couple but they are limited in what they actually do (as a mum thats always nice to know). I found myself curious and engaged in the world that Armentrout created. The characters are believable, they have flaws and yes Daemon can be a dick but he means well. It has similarities to other books in the genre but these days i think it is hard not to compare books and find something similar in them.
