I picked this book up because it came with high praise - and was almost tempted to put it down again when I saw it was compared to Twilight (and as most people know I am not a big fan of Twilight). However, I was really impressed with this book, and hope that the next book in the series is not far away as it was thoroughly enjoyable. Retra is a complex character, and the world she lives in is just as complex, with a supporting cast that is fully realised and fully involved in the plot. There are times when I stumbled and wondered if I had missed somthing - but that may have just been because I was reading when I was tired. This is a great read and doesn't have the same old, same old that other "vampire" novels have - not that this really classes as a vampire novel, but more books in the series may make a more "vampire" feel to the series.
