Continue to enjoy this series. Raylene is not exactly breaking the mould in terms of snarky vampires gathering together a family, but some fairly frank self-examinations about the character's mental illnesses and how to deal with the gendered pronouns has made for interesting reading (although to be honest the book isn't perfect on either.)

It's refreshing to have an action heroine who isn't going on about her skin tight leather all the time, and makes a point of wearing decent boots. The sexuality of the character is mentioned, but no more than it is for Harry Dresden, who I think is a better comparison for this character than many female heroines in the same genre.
