I've read everything else in this universe, so I knew at some point I would pick up with the Reconstructionist set of books. I am not sure what I was hoping for, but this was something completely different.

This story is about Wisteria. She has been tasked with reconstructing a really weird incident in a cemetery, but typically that's where her job ends. Throwing in Kett makes everything that much stranger and ends up drawing both Wisteria and her cousin into some sort of vampire filled drama. It was interesting to get the inside scoop (or at least a teaser) about Wisteria. She and her cousin have some trauma in their past that we don't fully understand in this book (but I hope we will later).

So, the larger story - newly turned vampires (young boys) are dying. Since nobody should be turning anyone, this alarms both the vampire governing body and the witch governing body. Wisteria and Kett (and Jasmine) are tasked with hunting down who is doing this and making it go away. Along the way, we see Kett be bland, Wisteria be uptight, and Jasmine be the most interesting of all of them. While I'm sure there is a great story lurking in later books, this clearly was intended to simply set everything up. The last part was enough to perk me up and get me to want more, but it was tough.
