I am still easing my way into more PNR and urban fantasy series. I would have never picked this one, if I had picked it based on the cover. That is one carp awful cover. Yikes. Its all the things that have always been a turnoff to me and why I was always reluctant reading UF. Thankfully, I was able to block out the image and enjoy the book. I did not know what to expect, but I found the whole thing very interesting. The weres, the vamps, the characters, everything worked for me. Glad to have found another series I think I will like. I like the intensity in this one.
