I liked the book overall. It follows Sahsi (a witch healer) who falls in love with Will (a human dying of cancer) and Astrid's (an abused and tormented werewolf) stories. The story ending just leaves the main characters unfinished. There is no closure and it is not a happy ending. I've read other synopses of other books from this author but none tie back to this storyline that I can tell. Perhaps Sashi, Astrid & Will are minor characters in another series. Just felt their story is left incomplete. Would loved to know what happens to these characters and see where their story leads. Thats the only reason I give it 3 stars. The book leaves you hanging and wanting more conclusion. Otherwise, well writen.
This is the first Melissa F. Olson book I have read and I would recommend reading it. This is a great prequel and leaves you wanting to read the next book straight away. The characters are unique and the emotions are tangible. I love Sashi's take on things.
