Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book, but it was such a short read and hard to believe...but it's full of gods, so there's not much room..LOL. The thing I didn't get was how, in the course of a few hours, they fell in love. I mean Aiden is so full of hate, and a girl shows up at his cabin in the middle of nowhere, and he takes a nap...please! Then, he accepts she was in his dreams and all of a sudden he starts to fall in love. I don't know, maybe it's just me, but, I think there needed to be a bit more of a build up. But that's my opinion, and I will continue to read all her books in the hopes that I find those gems like the Dark-Hunters again....Acherons story is out August '08...yummy!
