Very nice story. This is a romance adventure with paranormal elements, all of it combined to make an entertaining story. Lots of effective background on different culture versions of folk/tribal exorcism, which set the mood nicely. 4½ stars if I had the option, and since I don't, five stars. The few things that bothered me had nothing to do with plot or characterization, just some name vs pronoun awkwardness when in character head space. This story had great balance between adventure and romance, pensiveness and action.

I bought this book on Friday, and finishing it has sucked up most of my weekend when I should have been doing more constructive things. I hated to put it down.

There are a lot of things I loved about this book. Both heroes are flawed, but likeable. I would love to see more of them, but the book doesn't leave any loose ends that make me think a sequel is in the works.

One major bonus for me was the magic - the author researched the magical background of both heroes in meticulous detail. It shows in the little offhand descriptions, but doesn't turn into a boring infodump.

The pacing was smooth, and kept the story moving without feeling that the author was trying to race through crisis after crisis to keep readers from putting the book down. There were plenty of crises, but all followed naturally from earlier events, and didn't feel contrived. The pacing of the romance was quite nice too - the sexual tension between the two men builds slowly but steadily, making the first sex scene explosive.

I was also impressed with the editing and overall quality of the prose. It flowed beautifully. It was never ornate, but I can't think of a single instance where I was jarred out of the story by an awkward phrase.

I've been looking forward to this book since I heard the author read an excerpt from it in May, and it was well worth the wait.
