I remember why I love this series so much. It was a little odd to have a year gap between the events in the last book and the events in this one, but that worked out well, since I took a break between them. It would have been a lot stranger if I'd read this book right after reading Blood Rites.
I don't really have anything to say about this book that won't spoil, so I'll just say that the subplots (White Council vs Red Court and White Council vs White Court, with Harry always in the middle and often everyone against him) have gotten a little crazy. I really loved that everyone is assuming that Harry is gay, since he's living with Thomas. He denies it, but never says Thomas is his brother, which would be a lot more believable than the denial.
