did not like it
bookshelves: 2011, urban-fantasy

Needs to quit trying so hard to be clever. Yes, family is important, I'm not going to forget this central theme to the book from page to page. Also, we could use some different characters. Misha/Stefan/Cal are all functionally the same character with their reptative not terribly wise cracks, the overcompensating focus on junk food, their so gosh, golly, good hearted badassness. Which is all too bad, these are interesting ideas just weighted down with the flavor which winds up overwhelming the story.
