Though the plotline is a bit like Sherrilyn Kenyon's Fantasy Lover.
In other words, it involves a guy cursed to eternity in a magical object and cannot die, awakened by the heroine.
But Marjorie is a better writer, Hari less cliched and Dela more interesting. I've never been to Beijing (it's really cold there you see LOL) but it feels like I've been there through Dela's eyes.
I'd have liked to hear more about Dela's talent and Hari's past. I do think that this book didn't delve deeply enough into either of the two lead characters.
This book moved pretty quickly, and the suspense element was pretty well done. The secondary characters are interesting (check them out here), but it's not so heavy-handed that you think that they are just there so she can introduce them for the next books in the series.
There were one or two details that she didn't tie up in this book, but I hope she did in the next book, Shadow Touch. I'll get this one when I see it–seems that she sells pretty well, because my bookstore owner said she's recently reordered all the books.
On the whole, I think para romance (and romantic suspense ones who like their paras) readers should pick this one up and give it a try.
