I really enjoyed this book. The characters were extremely likable and of course I loved Gabriel. Who doesn't love a sexy, hot, compassionate vampire? I had a few problems with the writing at times. It was sometimes a bit over simplistic and there were some grammar errors. I would have liked to read a bit about Gabriel's life in the 300 years before he met back up with Hannah. Maybe in a sequel or a spin-off. I think the story ended in the perfect spot, but not a major cliff-hanger. It definitely left you wanting to know what would happen next and how Hannah would deal with what she just learned. I will definitely be reading the next book.
This was a much slower paced book than Guardian. There was not a lot of nail-biting action that keeps you wanting to forego everything else and just read but everything seems to be an integral part of the storyline. The relationships between the characters was more fully developed. I was glad to see the relationship between Hannah and her biological father did not suffer when she found out the truth. Hannah had many of her questions answered when she went with the mermaids and spoke with (no you don't get the spoiler). The answers will hopefully make her life much simpler, at least in the relationship area. This was a good addition to the series and I can't wait for the next one. I'm still waiting to hear about Gabriel's life in the 300 years before he was reunited with Hannah.
