I read the sneak peak and instantly got hooked, I must confess, Vlad was not one of my favorite characters in the Night Huntress universe, but I think he will be one of them now. It's like Spade, I fell in love with him in First Drop of Crimson, He was not on my favorite list before that book. I'm curious about Leila and her powers, I'm like Ian in the regard of liking unique heroines. Maybe I will like her as much as Cat and Denise. I really look forward to reading this book and the others that will follow.
