I'm in completely denial! It's over...no more Vlad!
I really enjoyed it! Even though my favorite is the previous one I have to give big credit to Heather Brewer for a very well done closing. The characters once again are so endearing and special. I always see myself comparing this books with Harry Potter which I'm sure it's not fair for the authors but I think both sagas has that same core about the main character and Otis reminds me too much of Sirius Black!
I would love if Brewer would come up with a prequel based on the Chronicles of Otis (I just adore the character) in the end I think you should be please with how things end. Remember you can't please everybody and Heather does not believe in happy endings unless involves blood. ..Which in this case...it did! And lots of it!
