This is one of Kenyon's B.A.D. books, but I mean that in a good way! As always it delivers SK signature features - fascinating characters in a page turning plot - but the overall 'feel' was slightly different. There was relatively little humor [as you find in the earlier short stories] but I'm guessing that is due to the inclusion of a coauthor. Since there is almost no info on the SK site and the link to Bureau of American Defense sends you to the Diane Snell site, I get the feeling that this series has been 'handed off'.

I enjoyed this book very much. This is the first one of the BAD books I have read so I
didn't have any certain expectations. Just that it be a good read. And as always anything
Sherrilyn Kenyon is part of is excellent.
I think this book is getting a bad rap in the reviews. Is this book _War and Peace_? No. Obviously not. But I am one of those people who will put down a book that cannot hold my interest or I find the characters 2 dimensional or annoying. Life is too short to read a crappy book. I did not put down this book.
I found the action in both the front story and the back story interesting and fun to follow. I really like that there is a thread running all through the books about the secret society trying to control the world. I find it fun to see how they've advanced their knowledge about the evil guys. This leaves room for a new and fresh story with new characters that you get to know.
I really liked it. Worth the read if you like these kinds of books.
