This was my first foray into the world of urban fantasy. Unfortunately, I was horribly disappointed. The plot sounded interested but the development of the story was painfully slow. I truly struggled to get through this book as very little happened over a very long period of time. To make a painful situation even more torturous, I found the writing choppy and disjointed. There were numerous times I had to reread a paragraph, which rarely increased my understanding of the what the author was attempting to communicate. I really wanted to like this book, but it was dull.
