I had higher expectations for this book than it delivered. It picks up right from where the last book left off and there was very little recap - a good thing - but I think I've been reading too many teen urban fantasy books because I've gotten tired of teen angst. I love how Armstrong is keeping her worlds separate and yet not. We hear about the Pack and the Cabals but no names, no connections. There were too many scenes trying to make Tori into a human being, rather than teen-witch-bitch and not enough scenes with Derek until the last half of the book. It took a while for the action to get going but once it did, it flowed well. I just wanted a little more meat. Maybe in the next book.
