SPOILERS BELOW!!!

25/7 - This is hovering between a three and a four - two stars for the romance side of the story and four stars for the fantasy side.

My main problem with the romance is that it was so slow burn on Silhara's side that by the time he finally noticed Martise there was no chemistry between them. Add to that Silhara being a bit of an asshole, especially in one scene where he gets possessed by Corruption and attempts to strangle Martise to death. Martise does everything she can to free herself, including kicking him in the balls, none of which has any effect on the possessed Silhara and he doesn't let her go until Martise calls up her Gift to help her. Once Corruption leaves him Silhara is more worried about how hard Martise kicked him than about how close he came to killing her, even making out like he's scared of her when she goes to him to try to help. The way he treats her you'd think she'd kicked him for fun, not because she was fighting for her life. I felt like he was putting his severe, but not life threatening, pain above what he did to her and that felt completely unfair to me.

The best part about this book was the fantasy. I really enjoyed the story of Silhara's fight against Corruption - the battle with the lich, the revelation of the truth behind Martise's Gift and the final battle with the 'help' of the priests. For once I was wishing for less romance and more fantasy. I will definitely read more of Draven's books (when I have the time).
