For me, this book was just a great read. I tended to read it faster than usual because I know the characters so well. There are parts toward the end (black moment and resulting pain) that were hard to read about because of caring about the characters and wishing they didn't have to go through it.
Bren might be my favorite hero so far. Maybe. I don't know--all the O'Kane guys in Sector Four are awesome.
I read the snippet for Beyond Jealousy (the next book in the series) at the end and I know for certain that book will wreck me.
This series is excellent and this book is a great addition to the series.
