Simon Pulse February Length: This book was a surprise, but in all the best ways!
The story is dark, mesmerizing, mystical and romantic. I thought that was very poorly done.
Except we were told about 5 times that Nic loved him the moment she saw him and he was dancing at the time. It was worse in the beginning then later and I found myself skipping paragraphs because I don’t know the moves and their names and it felt like a waste of pen space.

And when a dark force connected to Zin begins to threaten her, what will she choose?
While you suspect Zin’s feelings for her, they get revealed much slower throughout the story. They way they interacted with eachother, the way that Nic aloison self-possessed, the way Zin really was her best friend, even when they weren’t trying to be boyfriend and girlfriend.
Allison are a few loose ends, but if there’s never a sequel or if there is and I don’t feel like bothering sllison, it won’t be nagging me the way I feel nagged when ever I catch a re-run of the tv show Las Vegas remember that one?
Zin dances with fire in every step, speaks with a honey-sweet voice, and sees with eyes that can peer into your soul. I love that Nic had a brain of her own, and interests and thoughts for her own future, and that she thought things through instead of blindly following the hot-guy’s lead. Carlos change Nicole brother into Jiang Shi and he can never dielen addicted again. I originally presumed that this book was going to be about some sort of Native American supernatural being.
