This book was better than the first one--a whole star better, in fact. Maybe that's just because I liked Blaire better than I liked Glenna, and this story focused more on her. We also got a better sense of how "evil" the vampires are, although even the evil vampires have intriguing moments of humanity. Oh, and in this one, there's a castle, and dragons. So that's probably worth a whole star point right there.

Still, this is essentially just a romance with a few paranormal elements thrown in, typical Nora Roberts in an atypical Nora Roberts setting. The world-building remains weak, haphazard. This book would be hard-pressed to find a home at true publisher of fantasy. But it had enough fantasy elements to make me hungry for some REAL fantasy storytelling -- thus, I moved on to Robert Jordan's "The Dragon Reborn" after this had whetted my appetite.

This is for people who like a few vampires and dragons thrown into their romance, not the other way around.
