The blurb on the back of this work was a bit misleading. I thought the ghoul queen would have a greater role, but really her role was no more prevalent than the one she played in the last book. Yes, an important role, but I saw very little of her.

I wasn't disappointed in this book though. It was interesting enough even though it wasn't what I expected after reading the blurb. My biggest complaint was the secrets Cat hid from the reader. I have a preference to knowing whatever the main character knows. I'm not even sure Cat revealed the secrets she whispered to Bones. I can think of only one minor surprise announcement, and even then it wasn't that big of a deal.

Overall, this series is really sucking me in. I found I missed an offshoot of the Nighthuntress world, so I'll be start on Spade's and Mencheres's books next before cracking One Grave at a Time.

Oh well... guess I'll have to start that one next. Not stopping this book just to find out what I missed. Besides, I need to order First Drop of Crimson first."
