Better than the first book
Reviewed in the United States on April 20, 2016
Better than the first book, but not much new to say on the vampire trope. (Is there anything new that can be said about vampires?) The romantic love triangle, now a quadrangle, is okay, and it's fairly clear to a savvy reader who she'll end up with eventually. The plot does move quickly, and the mystery is engaging, along with the lead character. Mercy is a bit different than most of the urban fantasy heroines -- she's an auto mechanic, not a cop, detective, bounty hunter, or agent. She's also not uber powerful, which is a nice change of pace. The author intermingles bits and pieces of German folklore and history into the mix, but not much on Native American folklore, which is sorely lacking considering the heroine's heritage.
Overall a fun read.
