I'm a big fan of the Women of the Otherworld series, so I was waiting for this book for a long, long time. And although I kept expecting to read more of Elena, I did like this one a lot!
My only complaint is that Hope's character does not comne across as very strong. As an avid follower of the Women of the Otherworld, I expect the central characters to be really, really strong. Hope seems to fall a little short. Maybe that is what the book is all about - the fact that Hope is human, with all the failings that go with it.
All said and done, this is a fantastic book and I'd recommend it to anyone in a heartbeat.
Can't wait for the next one in the series!
