I picked this book up because Series

What I liked the Most? Holy bloody hell – the whole dang book

What I liked the Least? Even in the future – wow

Review: For the record this book is not exactly a mystery. You know the who-did-it almost from start of the book – but this information did not take any of the enjoyment away for me.

I love a strong, independent, sensible character like Eve Dallas – I love the fact that she is so veryvery opposite of Roarke, and yet they make it work, and work well. Peabody is elevating into an interesting character and has quite an advance knowledge base and much softer side! Feeney and Eve's friendship is pushed beyond the breaking point. Just when I think my love for Roarke can't get any bigger, he goes and does something amazing, again. I liked the witch (white v. black) business. And don’t forget the introduction of Jamie, you’ll see him again!

Recommended to: Anyone

Best Quote: "Eve: "Was that like a cookie?"
Roarke: "Hmmm?"
Eve: "You know, have a cookie. You'll feel better. Were you making me feel better?"
Roarke: "I certainly hope so, it worked for me. I wanted you. I always do."
Eve: "It's funny how men can wake up with their brains in their cocks."
Roarke: "It makes us what we are. Let's take a shower. I'll give you another cookie." (Inside joke with a lot of my friends so when I read this section I literally pulled a Peanut!)
