My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I enjoyed this book. I probably would have enjoyed it more and given it 5stars but for a few things.

All the versifying. Turned me off with it’s repetition. Hostetler Tu’s food rants. They were too long to be funny after the first one. They were just annoying.

Other than that, I really liked this book. Started out with a bang with monsters and vampires and plots, oh my! Reminded me a lot of the first book. I found the political intrigue just as interesting as the monster/myth hunting.

If you liked the previous books, you’ll most likely like this one as well.
