Avid reader/reviewer and editor. I don't pull punches when I review, love it or hate it, you get what I think.
I waffled back and forth on my feelings about this one. I went into it expecting a romance and while there is a couple who fall in love, it's more romance light. There's a kiss here and there, and some trust issues that can be expected considering the circumstances, but it's not an all-consuming love story. Nevertheless, the more I read, the more interested I became. This first book does a great job of introducing the reader to the world of The Cities Below. We also get a bit of intrigue and action as tension builds between the vampires and demons. We do get a bit of a cliffy on that front, and even though the romance lover in me was a little disappointed, the paranormal/fantasy lover truly enjoyed this tale of complete vampire cities beneath our feet.
