Still love to read Linnea Sinclair; but her best book is An Accidental Goddess. ( )

I always like Linnea Sinclair and this was right on target. Good three dimensional characters, although I wouldn't have minded a little more exploration of Kaidee's early life.

I particularly liked that neither character ignored the fact that they were in imminent danger to boink and emote endlessly. Not that there wasn't adequate emotional story arc intertwined with character/relationship arc, but it didn't suffer from the "people, get a grip, they're trying to kill you" that romance novels sometimes suffer from.

I guessed two big reveals toward the end, but that was ok and organic to the plot.

We see some characters from previous books toward the end, but I don't think you need to have read the previous books to enjoy this one.

It felt a little slow/long in places, and maybe could have used a little tightening, or a little less repetition of some of the key backstory, but all in all a very nice book. ( )

Not as good as the other books of Sinclair that I've read. For me it moved too slowly. And somehow the story did not seem as full as the other books in the series, following from Gabriel's Ghost. I'm not sure why it was a little disappointing. ( )

Devin Guthrie isn't the livewire of the family. He's more the staid, dependable numbers guy. But when his nephew disappears leaving a murdered bodyguard, and his family's response is to pressure him to marry for political reasons, he's had enough. And when he sees Captain Makaiden Griggs again he realizes slipping away to track down nephew Trip may be the best decision he's ever made.

The further adventures of the Guthrie family - if you haven't already read Gabriel's Ghost, Shades of Dark and Hope's Folly it may make more sense to start there, but this is enough of a standalone for solo reading should the earlier books not be available. ( )

Epigraph
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most." -Marianne Williamson
Dedication
First words
His family was sending one of their corporate star yachts through two major jumpgates-from Sylvadae to the port city of Tal Verdis on Garno-just for him.
Quotations
"I've spent too much of my life doing what others expected of me, rationalizing that it was my job to handle those responsiblities that Jonathan was too busy to do, that Philip wasn't around to do, and that Ethan didn't want to do. So I did them, and to a great extent, I'll probably always do them. Just like I will make sure Trip and Barty are safely on their way home. But this chance to have you in my life, it's my one great rebellion. It's my making a choice because you are what i want. I don't walk away from my responsibilities. But I'm tired of walking away from my dreams." -Devin
