When this book came out in hardcover, my fingertips itched to grab it, but I held off. I love soft cover books. I love abusing them. And that's just what I did with this book. A four hour delay at the Atlanta International Airport made it possible for me to get half way through the book, when I had expected to whet my apptetite and be forced to put it away not far into it. Anyways, The story was grand. The setting is rich and different from any I've experienced. The two species in the story seem so different, but as the central characters realise through their journey, the differences are simply a matter of perception. As the reader, I bonded especially to the main character, an heir to a great fortune that escapes being killed by being submerged into the body of a young girl of a totally different race. The concept of the two working together, and the many twists and turns, the constant deceptions and misplaced trusts, makes this read very interesting and fast paced. If you're not careful, you'll find your mind spinning. As the first book, this was great. I can't wait to read more. Destiny, as I imagine it, is never easy.
