The story is intriguing, as are the characters, but Michael is so damn violent with Christina that I can't see him as a sympathetic character. It was hard to root for him when he was just...sadistic. That's what kept this from getting four stars.Some words are missing and there are some typos, but I still enjoyed this book and the constant surprises. Still, I'm hooked, so I'll be reading the rest of this series. Campbell is a talent.
