This started out with so much promise - a scholarly witch who doesn't know much about her powers accidentally "unseals" a magical, alchemical book and riles up the "creature world" of demons, vampires & witches. What this book ends up being is a sappy, stupid "romance" that's worse than the worst Twilight book. Our "hero" never truly owns her power and she falls apart whenever her vampire lover decides he doesn't like her anymore. What a waste of a really good story idea!
