2nd time around for reading this, 1st review tho. I really liked this book. Richard is ofc still being a total ass. He's really bugging me, but that's the only bad thing about this book.Here we met the vampire council for the 1st time, and it was pretty good and bloody. I enjoyed the plot, the chars and Anita's growing powers. I like the part with Nathaniel and the healing. It was really awesome.
