I am still very much loving the concept behind theses stories. The perfect mix of good and evil captured in 8 siblings - each having to choose which way they want to go. Rhiannon has chosen the good. She's a healer and tries hard to avoid situations that may allow her darker side to emerge. But you can't really avoid falling in love. I like that the characters are falling in love with people that are already a part of their lives. It makes the love seem more true and long-lasting than if they were love at first sight.
I had a harder time connecting to Mick. He was just too "hard" for my taste. Not that he wasn't well written - he has an amazing story and it's very well developed - he just wasn't my type. I think his reaction to some of the events that happened during the "camping trip" were fantastic. His outrage and disbelief were so believable and I really felt his confusion and betrayal.
This seemed a bit darker than book one - but I can't put my finger on why. I really enjoyed getting to know another sibling, and we get a fairly good look at another, as well some visitors from book one. I think as the series goes on and the father gets more pissy things are going to get very interesting.
