Could¿ve Been Better
I didn’t enjoy this installment as much as I thought I was going to and it took me far longer than I would’ve liked to finish this book. The story started off really slow. The main investigation was disorganized and filled with too many secondary character interactions.
This installment did not do Delilah any favors, she looked like a tag-along in her own book. Most of this book seem to be about everyone else but Delilah. Shade is a HUGE mystery; the author could’ve spent so much more time delving into his background and how his fate intertwined with Delilah’s. That alone could’ve made one heck of a story.
I rated this book 3-stars because the story was interesting. Albeit, the whole novel felt like a set-up for the next installment; basically a huge waste of time and felt like the sisters were running in circles chasing their tails.
I think Iris’s wedding should’ve been a novella on its own. Instead it was mixed into Delilah’s journey with the two parts colliding and feeling mashed together. The wedding took up most of the beginning portion of the book. I enjoyed Iris’s background adventure from the Hexed anthology and would’ve enjoyed a short story on her wedding just the same.
One thing I did like is that the men in Delilah’s household are fully domesticated and don’t mind pulling their weight at home. They also don’t mind “manning” the home front while the sisters go out and handle their business.
I recommend this book and series to fellow dark urban fantasy readers and will read the next book Shadow Rising due out 10/30/12.

The book is good in terms of the actions of other characters and plot, but there was no true character growth inDelilah nor had she done anything that was particularly note worthy. Happy for everyone else, however as a Delilah fan I am truely disappointed and discouraged.

Was an ardent follower until now...
I'm not sure what has happened to the series at this point. The dialog is absolutely PAINFUL! Very pre-teen-ish. The plot was sound and moved along fine but in the end, I'm losing interest because of the interaction of the characters. These girls are supposed to be tough...not cheesy.

could be better
I would have liked this book & the series in general if each book didn't center on one character. Camille. Obviously this is the authors favorite character because in each book you can't go three pages with out it mentioning her name. The idea of this series is great don't get me wrong. But if the author would just keep the story centered on the character that the book is about, instead of always splitting focus for the Camille character in books that are supposed to be about some one else, I would love this series. In short, I would suggest skipping Camille's stories because you here enough of her in other characters' books.
