I bought this book after receiving the first one, Passion Of The Different (The Passion Trilogy), from an author giveaway. After reading the first one, I couldn't wait to start the second.
I love that this book starts right where the last one left off, giving us a great back story to Ryan without bogging us down in the past. The author continues to craft wonderful, strong characters (especially the females).
Each of these books can stand alone, but I warn you, if you read one, you'll want to read the other. However, I would recommend reading them in order, it just fits better.
For those who aren't familiar with the series, it takes place on a pastoral planet inhabited by humanoids, but not humans. This, the second book, shows what can happen when advanced technology is introduced unintentionally and follows our heroes on their next stage in life.
The only thing I would suggest to the author is that I felt less of a connection with Myra in this book than the first. She's a fantastic character, and I wish we'd spent more time with her.
It is difficult to classify The Passion Trilogy by genre. It would fit comfortably in fantasy, sci-fi, romance, futuristic, and others. If you enjoy any of these genres, I would recommend picking up this series. There is one erotic scene, but it fits well in the story, not just put in randomly.
I enjoyed the book very much and eagerly await the third book!

What can I say....
It is always a problem when writing a book/making a film, people expect the second one to be as good as, or even better. Daniel isn't good, He isn't better, he is an experience, blowing you away to a new level, taking you by the hand, and let you experience his story.
Daniel keeps surprising you with plot changes in the story, that can have big impacts later in the book.
The story doesn't read as science-fiction, it stays true to the first Fantasy part and as romantic as the story is, keeping your fingers crossed while reading, if everything is ending well, and hate Daniel for things that don't go as well.
Daniel has, with this second of the passion trilogy, made another entertaining book, filled with love, hate, understanding, misinterpretations, etc.
A book of lifelike stories, that could have happened, everywhere.
It just happened to be in Daniels imagination, but lifelike written.
I'm so very proud to have made the cover for this book.
To be able to visualize parts of the story, I've come to enjoy.
