3.5. I enjoyed the premise of this book quite a bit. I liked the relationship between Raynard and Ori and how Raynard began to fall in love. What was missing for me was the development of Ori's personality. His submission was so ingrained and his belief that he was always at fault for something made him oblivious too often to what was going on around him and it didn't allow for any of his other traits to come forth.
