This is my first Larissa Ione book and my god, it has everything! I don't think I've ever read a book that integrated so many different types of paranormal beings (vamps, demons, shifters, etc) seamlessly! The plot was totally unique and the world in which they play is very well done. This is book five in the series so now I've got to get the previous volumes.
I was able to read this book independently without reading all the others, though I did get a bit lost a few times in who was who. Overall, it was a fabulous book.
