The second book in a series is often a bit of a letdown, but not this one. I loved how the story got deeper and connected to Mary Shelley and Bram Stoker. Carmilla is a great vampire. She's very creepy but fascinating at the same time. I wasn't expecting Desiree to be in this story so much, but I liked reading about her adventures in Styria and New Orleans. The whole thing with Tobias was so sad. I love that Ruby and Simon's story is developing like a real life relationship, and it's awesome that he's not some creepy overbearing stalker like nearly every other vampire in other series. Simon's a cool, tough guy, but he's not a psycho. And that's a good thing.
