3.5 stars. I really like the main character, unfortunately she suffers from "too-many-lovers" syndrome. Surely Lucas is enough and the rest are purely in place for distractions. I didnt and still dont really relate to the whole desmond chemistry thing by comparison, i mean she obviously saw Lucas when she felt all those hormones at the cafe before she saw desmond? Then theres also the length of the book. Theres not really a concrete ending. Things felt unfinished and nothing felt concluded. Despite this, still a great book, one in which i enjoyed myself immensely and managed to read in one sitting. Time flew by. The writing is addictive and despite the flaws I cant wait to see what happens next. BTW the main character is like Buffy, except part vampire and part werewolf, and not only does she hunt down evil vampires, but she too kicks the ass of evil werewolves. She's awesome.
