This book is the middle of a series. If you start here, you will be confused.Liked:* Cat & Bones! Love them. Always. They have such a great relationship (and some way hot sexxoring).* Poor Cat just cannot be normal even after she becomes a vampire. * The world-building remains very strong and the networks of vampire and ghouls keep increasing.* Vlad is awesome. That is all.Liked Less:* The plot was excellent and engaging, but this book didn't end on as hopeful a note as previous ones. I know that bad things happen to good characters but it was still a little bit of a downer. * Cat & Bones's major conflict seems to be resolved a bit too easily though it seems like the fallout may come out more in the next book.
