It' a pretty cool idea -- a secret cabal devoted to genetically engineering and controlling supernatural creatures like witches and werewolves.

It's a solid novel that lags somewhat in the middle (when it seems like not much is happening beyond bickering). In this installment, there's no sense of plot other than running from the Edison Group, but it has plenty of suspense, a dash of necromantic horror, and likable characters with realistic flaws and self-doubts.

Definitely a good read, whether for teen or adult fans of werewolves, witches and zombies.

Despite these misgivings, I'm looking forward to the conclusion of the trilogy this spring with The Reckoning (Darkest Powers, Book 3).
