I picked this up purely as I love Renee Raudman's narration: which was, again, excellent. The book; less so.
Yes, as a new series I expect a ..Show More »slow build up as the infodump of the word and its rules are introduced. But it took so long to get up and go that I nearly got up to do something else! Saying that, I quite enjoyed the second half and had a big listening binge at the end to find out what happened next :)
There was plently of good and bad. I liked the premise, the romance between the leads and the secondary characters were fun, if only loosely drawn. I hated Sera's incessant barage of meta-physical questions - it got old quickly. Nor did I like the random bits from the baddies point of view. I also felt really confused about the classes, powers and the hierachy of the demons (all of them: "good", bad and redemption-seeking). However, I really liked the fact that there were these three factions and subtlties and would've liked to find out more.
This hasn't inspired me to pick up another in this series; but I still enjoyed it. Recomended for those who like their paranormal-romance to be more romance than fantasy or action.
