Not emotionally appealing for me to keep my attention throughout *shrugs*. I just didn't believe in their attraction, not enough tension-built there in the beginning. The fact they 'did' it early on just didn't help my reading mood for the better. The time jump was bit distracting; it sort of threw the sense/momentum out of whack, which made me a little uncaring about Jin being captured *double shrugs*.
The cover is pretty, though ... which was the reason why I went ahead and bought this during one of DSP's wide-store sale events.
