This was the latest in the series about Eve and Rourke. I have waited for and read every one of the 47 books. They were a must read for myself and my friend. We both agree that since about 40 they have become less exciting and this one has no magic at all. The story is good and because I have long connected with the characters, I enjoyed it but it took me days to finish because I didn't care if I put it down. Could have been written by someone else. Will probably read the next one then give up. It must be difficult to keep up the momentum.
