Anyhow, I must say that I prefer Protector (Healer a little less) than this. I couldn't connect fully with Cassandra and Michael was very stubborn about his erroneous convinction that's he's as bad as the bad guys. He's supposedly intelligent, but he just couldn't get that what defines a person are that person's actions. Otherwise it was an interesting book full of action and nice twists and turns. I'll read the next one!
