Holy crap. I am loving Karou's journey. I was up and down all throughout this book. I wanted to cry with her and despair and laugh and fight. I love that she is finding herself and carrying herself through this journey without simply running into the arms of a man. She is young and scared but also brave and willing to make sacrifices.
I am a little tired of the shame and back-and-forth nature of her feelings for Akiva. I don't think he deserves all the hatred and anger she has brewing for him. His journey is as fulfilling as Karou's. He is learning how to be more than what he was bred to be. And willing to make hard choices. (Hazael broke my heart though) I am just growing weary of both Akiva and Karou as far as the self loathing goes and the constant berating of themselves.
Jael.....damn you Jael. I hate you Jael.
I am very interested to see how the story plays out as far as Ten and the White Wolf. And what happens with the Dominion. This should be fun!
