Not exactly a hard read, particularly since it overlaps (and is cut/pasted for a good portion of) the last two books of the series. Author didn't even bother to do a POV change for some of it. :/
Most annoying - the previous book ended when the H of this book found his supposedly dead mate. We get the rest of the story - sort of - as there was the first mention that Max (previous H) was gravely wounded right after that, and it was never cleared up how he survived.
Add to these issue the fact that for the better part of the book, the h is presumed dead... Well, she was dead in a sense but she was half some sort of dream fairy and that didn't exactly kill *her*; just her human shell.
