Though I felt like this particular volume in the series didn't flow quite as smoothly for me, there were a LOT of things I really liked about it.
I really liked delving deeper into the Silver Bloods history, seeing their relationships with humans, and getting a few more details revealed...
I really liked seeing Mimi be, well, Mimi...forceful, smart...yes, a little bitchy, but for good reasons. Plus, she and Oliver become friends and well, I just thought it was super sweet how it developed.
I liked the introduction of Deming Chan, a venator from the Asian Blue Bloods coven. That was cool. Her philosophies and skills were different and added more depth to the world that De La Cruz has built.
I cannot wait for Bloody Valentine and then Lost in Time which comes out in October 2011.
