There was so much going on. I didn't have time to focus on one catastrophe in Maddy's life before something else happened. And when the background was provided on why these things were happening now, they didn't quite jive for me. This book was all about the implausible.This book is in the middle between PNR and UF. There wasn't enough romance to make it the first but there wasn't enough fighting to make in the second category. Again, it goes back to there was too much going on in this book.
