This is a book where love comes lately while two people
struggle to find understanding of what being and having a
mate is. I don't usually read Science Fiction / Futuristic
Fantasy. I liked that this story was longer and dealt with
more conflicts than just the survival issues. The plot
allows the characters to grow and the love to finally take root.
