My Thoughts - Story
Well, Ms. Pillar did it again…I absolutely love the way she writes a story…especially because the story isn’t weighed down by drama or angst from a relationship. Instead, the main characters spend the majority of the story building up to the climax of getting together.

So, not only do we enjoy the adventure and action of a fantasy with a dose of thrill but the relationships bring about final ingredient to a perfect story. More or less like icing on the cake.

Another thing I really like about Ms. Pillar’s stories is her “realist” writing of characters. We don’t have the perfect heroine or hero, instead they are “real” with problems that they deal with.

I enjoyed these characters ---- Alice, Hannah and Byrne…and we get a mix of vampire, werebear and other magical powers…plus we get to see how the main characters from Graced is making out!
