There were things I loved. The insta-love that was done just right for my tastes, the vampire lore was interesting, and I loved the special-power thing. Also, Alec and Cronin were hot together.
On the other hand, I was irked by some stuff too like how "Alec is a cop turned criminal" part of the plot was completely unnecessary and a bit forced, and how Alec was too accepting of everything paranormal.
While I enjoyed this book overall, and I'm looking forward to the sequel, this certainly isn't NR's best work.
