The most compelling "vampire" book I've read? No. But considering my depth and breadth of reading in the genre, it still stands out.
I really liked the first book, and this continues the story without disappointing.
(Guess it's a 'trilogy' now.)
A lot of sensualism and bloodletting without sex, which is nice. (This is not paranormal romance.)
Ryan is tasked by the Council of Elders with a millennial cleansing- basically, to kill as many of "the Others" (don't call them vampires- they hate that) as she sees fit- and is able to do. All while her father - the patriarchal leader - lies gravely ill.
She has to step lightly around the political machinations of the various council members even as tries to determine who is responsible for her father's predicament.

The book is full of dry, sarcastic wit. The wording can get a bit repetitive, but the author has done her homework, there aren't a lot of 'suspend disbelief' plotholes. (No one, not even a 700 yr old vampire, walks away from jumping out of a plane.)

I'll be curious how the 3rd book turns out.
