So I picked this up under duress, as my choices were limited and I had nothing to read while I await the delivery of Meg Gardiner’s books.
I hate, hate, hate buying books with covers like this, particularly since most of my reading is done in public. I must say, however, that if the North American version had the same cover as the UK version, I certainly would not have purchased it at all.
I was pleasantly surprised and enjoyed this book. Publisher’s Weekly said, “fans of Anita Blake and Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse vampire series will be rewarded” and I agree completely. The publisher is releasing the other 3 in the series one a month for the next 3 months, which means at least I’ll have something to read.
