This book is less grim and with more romance elements compared to the previous book. While Vamp city is still a disturbing place, the story centers more on the main characters this time around. I liked to despise Arturo but it was a nice change to make him seem more approachable. Quinn really grew as a character and seemed more secure in her role and I can even stand her brother now. I was really curious to see where the author would go from the first book being very dark and develop the DC Vamp city and try to justify why Quinn should not let it die out.
