Re-read 10/26/11: Have I mentioned how much I love this series? The first time I read it, I read out of order. After finishing Heart Search a few days ago, I wasn't ready to Celta behind and decided to re-read. It held up very well. I can definitely see how Owens has grown as an author from this book to her latest release. The characters bothered me some. The lack of communication between Danith and T'Ash rankled, though not enough to kill the story for me. The world-building wasn't quite as tight back then. Still, this is an excellent series and this book is one of the better ones. ____________I was kind of nervous about reading this one after I finished Heart Duel, but it was awesome. I loved both T'Ash and Danith.
