i liked it. Esp. the first 75%. I like KA's darker, grittier side. a man takes from his slave unapoligetically, and she loves it and he obviously adores her.
i expected more of an epic confrontation at the end, as foreshadowed by the selection nightmare. i expected a more public declaration of love to save her life kind of thing, but its all good.
some of it was reminiscent of twilight, but i assume all paranormal vampy stuff has similar concepts.
