It was nice seeing Kagawa delving into another realm of fantasy besides fairies. I loved The Iron Fey series so I was curious to see how this book was going to turn out and I wasn't disappointed. Vampires is a topic that has been written about countless times, so when writing a vampire story I think its hard to be unique because everything has pretty much been said. But this book introduced something I hadn't seen in vampire stories before, true this book had a bit of a hunger games plot to it, the whole being locked in this society, but the difference is that vampires are the one running the world now. If my invisible audience has read any of my reviews before, I usually have problems with the female protagonist in stories because they annoy and piss the hell out of me, but Allison Sekemeto is pretty bad ass in this story and I enjoyed her character. Like all other stories, it ain't a story if there isn't a love interest and thats where the human Zeke comes in, that was pretty weird, I'm use to the female being human and the vampire being male (Twilight, Anne Rice) so it was different seeing the roles reversed with this story, and though I like Zeke and whatever...I kinda got the impression that Allison and the vampire Kanin (who turned her) were going to have something going on, but thats why this is a series and I'll see what happens when the next book comes out....which is when?
