What captivated me most about the book was one the cover (GORGEOUS) and two were the usage of words, they really amused me (no I don't mean that in a mean or hurtful way) "I need you back on the job. Murdering hobgoblin, vampire - whatever or whoever the killer turns out to be." America I love her, I really did. "I had no idea a man could get up a shag with a knife at his throat." Was that a smirk or a lopsided grin from him? "That wasn't a compliment." I really loved the witty banter back and forth between Phaeton and America. Jillian has done a superb job of writing memorable characters that you can't help but love and hope all the best for them. I can't wait to get my little hands on the sequel!
