This cover has caused a bit of a stir among readers.

So, without giving too much of the story away. I'll tell you how I feel about this book now that I have finished it.

It was a slow start for me, because as it has been stated by others . . the cover and story don't match 100%. So, that in itself threw me for a loop. However, once I got past the first few chapters . . I was hooked. At one point I was laughing so hard, my 3 yr old told me to quiet down. I myself, never felt like I had the book figured out . . so it kept me on my toes, kept me guessing as to what was going to happen next.

This book had it all from the twist and turns of what's next, to the vampires, trolls, and many other underworld creatures, to the bits of romance, to the comedy. It was overall a very enjoyable read.

I will be looking forward to the next book, due out 11-1-11.

Good story but much too girly for me

I selected this book in an attempt to build up & expand my urban paranaormal collection (which includes J. Butcher, K. Armstrong, I. Andrews, R. Caine, C. Kittredge & L. Shearin) but I did not enjoy it mainly because the character is super girly with no special skills except an immunity to magic - big whup. If you're into the weak & helpless female who's constantly screamning, crying, ogling men and lamenting the fact she's hasn't been intimate in while...this is your girl. But if you need a female character with a kick behind attitude with a heart of gold this is not the book for you. I couldn't even finish this book...only made it to the first 3 chapters. On a happier note, at least the plotline has potential but I am passing on this author & the series.

    Great idea and plot -- very poorly written. Lots of scenes were

    Great idea and plot -- very poorly written. Lots of scenes were included that didn't necessarily advance the plot and one of the main characters had a sudden change of heart early on that was entirely unbelievable as it was unsupported in the story -- it just happened. Because the story was so very original, I hope that this author can advance her writing skills and really deliver with the next installment to this series.

    Harriet klausner

    And of course, the very first review is a plot spoiler by the worst plot spoiler here. Harriet klausner ruins every book she so calls reviews by revealing EVERY detail including the ending. Please bn, pkease ban this poster and delete her posts so that other readers can read books without her ruining them.
