This book was a strange cross between YA and romance. Tons of heavy "almost" sexual encounters but the main characters never do get to doing the deed
As a fantasy author I really enjoyed the diverse characters in this book, as a reader I was annoyed by the fact that not all of the different species are well identified or explained. Too much was left for my imagination to fill in.
Overall, it was a good book and worth the read. I probably won't be reading more in this series but then again, maybe someday I will get to it...it isn't one of the stories I am dying to follow.
