Second in the Anna Strong series. Anna is still trying find balance between her old life as a human, and those she loves, and her new life as a vampire and the needs that come with being undead. She meets new and different beings. I love this series and am looking forward to number 3, The Watcher.
Really enjoyed this book. It's a new series for me, and I read the 1st 3 books in three days. Highly recommend this author, and other reviews which suggest a combination of Charlaine Harris and Laurell Hamilton are correct, although, thank heaven, sex is not nearly as graphic as LH's most recent.
Enjoyable. Fast read.
Anna is still adjusting to becoming a vampire and hiding her new, true nature from friends, family and her DEA boyfriend, Max. After being betrayed by Avery, will she be able to trust anyone?
Not only is Anna still not accepting she's a vampire, she's let all her vampiric responsibilities lapse.
I get a little irritated with series that never end and only give us a tiny taste of what is to come eventually. The story was well written and entertaining, and can almost stand alone as simply a mystery book. However, I'm going to need a little more plot progression to continue with this series.
I expected to learn a little bit more about Casper. I was also expecting Anna to learn about this legacy people keep mentioning to her. I also thought she would settle some things between her and Max.
More of a mystery with paranormal elements, those elements include Anna and the police chief being vampires and a school teacher being a werepanther. (That's not a spoiler: look at the gorgeous cover art by Cliff Nielsen.)
