Much better than most of the paranormal romances out there mostly due to the excellent depiction of setting. You can really see and feel the claustrophobia and closeness of a small Southern town. The world-building in terms of powers and language is different enough to hold interest rather than just a cookie cutter version of the supernatural. I'm looking forward to reading the next one even though I gather it loses the setting.

I love the Duchannes' family powers too - so much more interesting than the traditional, one's a telepath, one's a telekenetic, one's a medium type stuff. Very original and atmospheric with a strong setting. I think Heide would have really liked this."
