As much as liked the first book, I did not care much for the most part of this one.
The story suddenly became plagued with sex scenes, which is all right, I guess, just not my
thing. Gaven turned into a peeping Tom. There is a lot of repetition, for example, Gaven being carried bridal style; using same old excuse to watch others having sex; hot-cold treatment by Vlar which got very old very fast and so on...
All the little things added up to two stars that I (unfortunately) have to take off. 3 stars.
