Here is my review. This has been my favorite First Look Book. This one really blew me away. I am still having a hard time getting into another book as these characters are still on my mind. I may just have to reread it.

I cannot WAIT until the next FL selection is posted!

I'll write my review over the next couple of days -- on a day I'm not fighting a migraine!
I have to say how much I've enjoyed this experience. First of all, the book was just fantastic. Second, I work evenings and weekends, so I can't participate in any book clubs. I've been amazed at the level of detail and depth of thought all the reviewers have put into this discussion. I hope I get to do this again, and now that I have an idea about the outline and the pace, I'll be better prepared. Maybe I'll even be able to restrain myself and follow the schedule instead of reading ahead!

This was by far one of the best books that I've ever read. Thanks so much to Shandi Mitchell and the First Look club for bringing this book my way! My review may be found on my blog:

Oh, and I also posted my review on B&N and a few other sites:

Thank you again for a memorable experience all of the First Look gang, Paul and Rachel. And thank you Ms. Mitchell for a vivid adventure.

I wrote my review and submitted it but I inadvertently did it from the thread page instead of coming here. This is my first FL book club and the thread page said click here to write your review so I did it. I just went back onto the B&N website to see if I could edit it, but couldn't, because then I would have posted it through here. Now I'll know better for the next FL book club.
I thoroughly enjoyed the FL book club. Between the book being a great read, the author answering all our questions and comments so candidly and all the participants, it was an amazing experience.
Shandi, thank you for writing such a touching book. I am only sorry that I couldn't add a plug in the review that I read it first through the Barnes and Noble First Look book club.
