(Tipping my baseball cap to Peterson) Not your average story. Totally original. I didn't know where the hell this story was going, but all I knew was that I wanted to get there. I LOVE JESS!!!!!!!!!!!!! I hope he is not just a fictional character. (maybe he's straight and Peterson can hook me up: hint hint) A soul like that needs to be real, so the rest of us broken-hearted can have a strong shoulder to sneeze/love on. The first couple of chapters with Lorcan thinking Q hated him had me rolling my eyes up into my head, thinking "misunderstanding syndrome," which lasted a minute or 3 or 5(this and the hospital situation is where my star came off), but then Peterson had Conner nip that crap in the bud. I also like the fact that Lorcan did not cave-in to Q's excuses and stood firm even through heartache. I love books with this type of realism. Peterson has a really good voice and I can't wait to read the next installment. Highly recommended.
