Thank god, a book that has managed to portray vampires as they should be: Terror inducing, undead creatures of the night. Laurell K Hamilton has created a main character who is one I can get on board with; she's brave, intelligent, but above all NOT PERFECT. I'm so sick and tired of those perfect main characters who don't put a toe out of line *yawn* sorry but it's old and boring. We want someone who we can relate to, because normal people make mistakes, and we're not good at absolutely everything.
I like how mythical creatures are accepted as general members of the public in this book. Alternate realities are always interesting to consider. It reminds me of how the Casts tried to make vampirism a normal part of society in the House of Night novels, but Hamilton actually succeeds.
I gave this book 4 stars, because although it is good, there are a few grammatical errors and typos that irked me. A few bits of the book could be fixed a little bit, but overall it was an interesting read.
