Sevan has been having dreams of a woman for 6 months, not realising that Lorelei was dreaming of him too. Even knowing that he has a true mate out there, he doesn't expect to find anyone better than Lorelei and in their dreams they agree to mate. When Sevan's ship is in danger, he asks for the help of a nearby planet, not realising that it is the one planet that contains his mate. When Lorelei and Sevan meet in the flesh sparks fly, and tensions rise as they must defeat forces that want Lorelei dead.

Just when I thought Roth's books couldn't get better I read this series! I was thrown right into Lorelei and Sevan's dreams (which like the rest of the chemistry between them were sizzling!) and right into the story. I felt drawn into it and needed to know exactly who and what was going on.

Once the two of them met physically there was a change in the atmosphere between them. It wasn't just about the sexual chemistry between them, but there was an aggrivating banter that worked well. There was never a point where Sevan looked down on Lorelei either, which was good, though she had her moments when she considered him a 'mere human'!

There was a lot of focus on the central pair as well as on the other people around them, and it seems that there is a good set up for future books and future pairings, and I liked the fact that Roth set these up well, it left me feeling llike I was starting to get to know the future main characters already.

Plus there was a great bad guy! And great background to him. It was pretty much explained why he was bad at the same time as leaving plenty of mystery to him. It all also tied in with the name of the series (Project Exorcism) which I definitely liked.

This was a really good read, I'm looking forward to more!
