I loved the book. I liked the romance, I liked how the good characters were genuinely good and the bad characters were bad. I liked how it ended and I loved Hollin and Erris. Beyond that, I can't think of what makes me love this story.The ending seemed like a total cliffhanger, yet at the same time it seems like it could just end there (oh I hope not). The characters all had their flaws and didn't act all high and mighty (except for one, but he's not important to this point). I loved the author's very unique concept for how the automaton communicated. I never would have thought of that.I certainly wish the book was longer. But my only real complaint would be the fact that there wasn't a prologue introducing the world we were looking at. I began reading and was trying to figure out where exactly this was set and it took a while before these names of places I'd never seen before were thrown at me. Then it clicked that this wasn't really any place on Earth that we know. It would've been nice to know before I began reading because these kinds of things distract me.I also need to say, that I love this cover. It's gorgeous!
