I had such hopes for this series; witches, wares and vampires all in one sisterhood..... but for me, this book was not a great start!!!
Though not an overlong book, it is way too dense; and it seems to depend on knowledge of other - more publicised - books on fairies and other such things to move it forward!!! For me, this made the dialogue stilted and lacking in any kind of reality. Also, like other reviewers I too felt that the D'Artigo sisters have odd powers and even stranger loyalties! (sex with the man who pursued her sister!!!!!)
So, I have to mention the sex in this book too! I was grateful that most took place 'off stage' because the sex written on the page was clichéd and I found myself smirking as each flowery line besmirched itself across the page. I was amazed that by the end of this book I did not covet one of the male leads at all!! For me, all lacked substance, depth.... and appeal!
I will purchase the next book 'Changeling' - why? I think this book would have worked in a longer form (with a glossary) or in a well edited shorter form. Everyone needs a second chance...........
