liked it

I'm no prude, but I was a little taken aback by the (to my mind) gratuitous sex scene in the previous installment of this series. It seemed out of place. Abrupt. Unnecessary.

So I was concerned that we'd be heading into that territory again when it is revealed that Harry would be investigating the set of an adult film. I worried that this series was heading into a "pseudo-porn" territory that I wanted no part of. Well, my fears were unfounded.

With that said, this installment didn't hold my interest like the last couple have.

Things I liked:

1) learning more about Murphy
2) the description of the White Court vampires and how they differ from the other courts
3) the final battle with the Black Court is AWESOME!

I still plan to continue this series, but this installment was a step backwards.
