I enjoyed Anna and Charles story in this first book of the series however I didn't love it. I found I was more interested in what the other characters were up to and their dynamics. the interaction between Charles, Samuel and Bran was more engrossing and I sometimes find with the whole mating storyline that I really have to suspend belief to go along with it and sadly I didn't feel it. I wanted to know more about the other female characters as well, Leah and Sage. I found Anna a bit boring and I guess I like my heroines kick ass.
