I am so used to DARK DARK DARK with Ker that it was a little weird having a story that wasn't twisted=) Ker proved she doesn't have to just write dark for me to like it! There were a lot of surprises, the very last sentence being a HUGE SURPRISE that I was so not expecting! I had it in my mind as something totally different. Yes, I just love not being able to predict things! I am a TOTAL Ker Dukey fan, if she writes it I read it! I can't wait for book 2 to come out!!
