I'm really unhappy about the cliffhanger. The summary does warn, but it's annoying none the less. I really liked the idea of a pure-blood vampire being a throwback, but I'm not really sure about this series other then that. Pure vampires aren't a new thing (J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood comes to mind - although only one of them is a pure vampire). I did like Tessa, but I don't like love triangles and this series has one already: Cody, Jared and Tessa. It would be easier if I liked one of the guys and hated the other, but I like them both so far.
It took me a lot longer to read this then it should have. This is the only book I've read this month, and since it's already the 30th it's likely going to be the only one. I don't think the book had anything to do with my slow reading of it, I just haven't been reading much.
