I enjoyed this book. Once I got into it, I finished it in a day, couldn't put it down. The main character, Anna Strong, is aptly named. She's independent without having that rough quality that heroines like Anita Blake get. I like that, while she does have her damsel in the distress moments, she also has her own moments, where she gets herself of some dicey situations.

It's got a similar vibe to it as "The Turning" by Jennifer Armintrout. Another thing I like, the author did not leave you hopelessly teetering on the edge of a huge cliff-hanger so that you would froth at the mouth until you could get your hands on the next installment. Rather, she left several loose ends that could each develop into a story line. Fans of the Sookie Stackhouse novels, the Turning series,the Anita Blake series and The Dark Huntress series would enjoy this book. And hopefully the ones that follow.
