Rated 4 out of 5 by from Much Better Than Expected When I first read the summary on the back of the book, I was a little concerned that I had just picked up some fluffy vampire romance. There was something about the way Kayla was described. When I started reading, I was so ridiculously pleased to find out that was untrue. What it really ended up reminding me of was Buffy's Initiative. High tech gadgets and a supernatural hit squad avenging the lives of loved ones lost to the vamps and weres. The story is deliciously complex, with characters never being what they seem and everyone's betraying someone else. We also get some bits of the story from different characters' points of view, which a lot of writers don't do and I think this worked out really well for the story. Great characters with strong personalities populate the book and you learn about a whole new and terrifying world just as Kayla is. It's smart and fresh and I'm so glad I got ahold of this.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not bad, could be better The name and the cover of the book enticed me, hence the reason that I picked it up. But I found myself being force to get through the first chapter. I found the book particularly boring to start out with and found that half the information given to the audience pointless and most confusing. But I forced forward and found that certain parts were more intriguing then others and enjoyed reading it after a while. Although, I found that the author introduced many characters to the readers without letting us know at all who this new character was. And there was no transition period, no time to understand who these characters were or how they tied in with the rest of the story before you were being introduced to someone else. Even though I had trouble falling into this read, the ending and certain characters intrigued me enough to eventually pick up the second. But only if there is nothing else out there to read.
