    Two different books

    It feels like I have read two books at once, and I can’t really tell if that is a bad or a good thing. My mind is reeling after the complex and secretive adventure Amnesia put me through and while some of the adventure was much enjoyed, it also at times felt like a too long journey on a straight and boring road. What has really stuck with me is the beginning of the book, when the biggest struggle was Amber’s Amnesia and her confusion over who Wrexel was to her as well as all the other men she found out about. The unknown information of what all the men meant to her made me fear that the book was going to turn into a reversed harem. Luckily I needn’t had worried since this was cleared up later on. Either way, the different lovers bomb that was dropped and kept mysteriously vague was very cleverly written into catching my attention and pulling me in to the story right away. The complications and her fear and confusion over who she was, where she was and what she found herself in the middle of built the story and her personality, as well as mysterious and overly protective Wrexel’s personality, beautifully. Their rocky but thrilling relationship and vague revelations from her missing memory kept me on my toes with my nose glued to the pages ... until she finally remembered. It was like suddenly reading a completely different book. Instead of following Amber and Wrexel working things out we were thrown back to the beginning to when they met and the story started developing from there and ending with present time just after she gotten her memories back. There is of course nothing wrong with the book written this way. As a matter of fact I found it imaginative and unique in a way. However, the reason for it feeling like I read another book is because that spark, drama and thrill I felt when reading it was suddenly gone. The main focus before that was their relationship and current struggles. Now the story was suddenly crammed with politics, war and culture. It couldn’t find any interest in any of it and neither in the relationship. Amber and Wrexel felt like different people all of a sudden. Amber being a Mary Sue disguised as a damsel in constant distress, crying, fainting and the whole shebang. Wrexel gave little to no emotion other than lust, anger or indifference. Both personalities fell flat and therefore so did the romance. Their relationship was all about lust and sex which, considering their agreement, was not that out of order in the beginning. However I never felt like it really developed to much else throughout the story no matter what was said and done. This was most likely thanks to the one dimensional personalities. The book was more driven by the politics and incidents surrounding that rather than characterization and romance. This was really too bad with such a good start to the book. This might be a personal preference, but I believe the story would have been much more enjoyable and better put together if the past had been mixed in with the present in the form of flashbacks throughout the story, focusing more on the present. While still learning what happened in a controlled and built up way through the flashbacks we also would have gotten a much more developed relationship between them, with them having to work out what happened, the betrayal and their feelings. The ending, where we readers finally knew what had happened haven’t become so rushed with them both instantly okay with everything and resolving it almost by chance. Even better, since this book was so long, might have been to make it into two books instead of one and not having to cram so much of the political information, plot twists and all other aspect into one book. I honestly wish so much that I had loved this book since it had such a compelling start, complex world and original plot. At the beginning I only had one complaint and that was the unfitting exclamation points. I had hoped that that was all I would have to complain about, but it just kept piling up. Still, it was an enjoyable read and I will give the next installment a chance sometime in the future.

    Fantastic fantasy hybrid, would read again!

    I was a little reluctant to read this book based on the amount of pages, but it proved to be worth it in the end! It was thrilling! I am primarily a fantasy reader but I really enjoyed the fact that this was a mixture of different genres! Loved the romance and the hot guy in the book ;) As of right now, I am on my way to buy the second book Forbidden!

    A great read.

    Really enjoyed this book. It starts off almost in a confusing way but soon you are told a remarkable story as to how the 2 main characters got to where they were at the start of the story. It is really interesting with a great love storyline..
