There wasn't anything in this book that really stands out. Vaughn clearly has a Grand Plan for the series, and this book is simply a bridge to get the series a bit closer to the end. Another words, it doesn't work particularly well as a stand alone book, but moves a few storylines along nicely - mainly, Kitty and Roman have another facedown they have been building to; some interesting secrets - and ones that will hopefully come into play later about Rick were revealed - and the powers of Cormacs' new buddy were better explored.

Overall, however, there is something about the book that feels like the whole thing was really an excuse for Vaughn to write off a vacation to San Francisco as a tax line as her work as an author (file under "research"). While taking Kitty and crew into Chinatown and the introduction of asian mythology into Kitty's world was an interesting sideline, it is exactly that - a sideline. It appeared out of nowhere, and didn't really integrate well into the entire plot line, since it started - and ended with just passing references to historical figures in American History that may or may not werewolves. And given how much weight is given in the books to vampire territory and werewolf pack territory, the complete lack of regard that Kitty and her crew give to either in this book (and how easily they get out of the consequences) also doesn't fit well with what has been presented elsewhere.
