The heroine once lived her life in a cage at the hands of an evil man who kidnapped her from her family and experimented on her. Known simply as the pet, she was liberated by the leader of their race but once again found herself in a cage, this times at the hands of the hero. But she escaped, driven by visions of a child who, with her help, will rise up and end the barbaric gladiator games that enslave her people. The hero follows her, fully expecting to drag her back to Greece but the strong willed woman he encounters throws him off. She's bold in her dismissal of his powers and openly mocks him. He's disturbed by the way she makes him feel like a man. For so long he's been untouchable. The all powerful, but reluctant leader of their race, both relishing in his arrogance and command and bemoaning his unwanted position. He uses none of the influential powers to help his people but just one day in the heroine presence opens him mind to just how selfish he's been. Despite the fact she's been a slave almost all of her life and is cursed with ability to see the future, both good and bad possibilities, she's using her powers for the good of others. She's open in her belief that things will be as they are meant to be but that isn't something the hero is comfortable with so he denies her abilities and calls her a liar for most of the book. Though she's deeply hurt by his lack of faith, she's unable and unwilling to stop their destiny of becoming lovers. I so wanted to like this book and in many ways I did. I knew in my heart that it was a great book but the language and the tempo of the story threw me off. I struggled to become engaged with the writing. This is because every sentence was so grand and dramatic with metaphors and heavy phrasing. It was like trying to read Shakespeare in a lot of ways. But as I said, I did like it. There were times where a got into a rhythm and could go with the flow and it was then that I could have felt right in rating this a 5 star. But alas, I overall it was a jumble of conversations going around in a circle with nothing much happening in between blips of action. ( )
