I really enjoyed this book.
It is not the genre I would usually read but I was pleasantly surprised. It was an easy read, light, fast-paced and imaginative.
I particularly enjoyed the mix of vampire lore with other fantasy concepts and modern day crime fiction.
The characters were unexpectedly engaging and I read quickly wanting to find out what happened to them.
I loved the idea that there is an intricate underworld of vampires, vampire hunters and witches just beneath the surface of our ordinary lives.
I would recommend it, especially for young adults, and plan to read the others in the series when I get through my current reading list. For the genre, I would have given 5 stars were it not for the fact that on occasion it felt a little rushed and some incidents were glossed over a little as the story jumped to the next stage.
