About the Author
Sarah M. Ross started her obsession with reading at an early age, getting in trouble for sneaking Baby-Sitters Club and Nancy Drew books into math class in elementary school. She would read any fiction book she could get her hands on. She knew it was an addiction when instead of grounding her from TV or music, her mom would take away her books as punishment (The Horror!). Her love of all things paranormal was inspired by her good friend Laurie, who convinced her that books with vampires, witches, and all things shifter were amazing. After a little reluctance, she gave it a shot with the Sookie Stackhouse books, realized her friend was right, and the rest was history. Ms. Ross grew up in Pittsburgh, graduated from the University of Pittsburgh with a degree in English, and taught 8th graders to love reading as much as she does for several years. She will always be a proud member of Steelers Nation, but couldn’t take the cold and moved her frozen tush to Florida where she now lives with her family and two cats. You will find her many days with her trusty Kindle in hand and toes in the sand!

When she captures a vampire, her instinct is to torture it before killing it. Nice.
She just can't stand being in a classroom and being taught something that might be crucial, because she is just too anxious for action.
She has no comprehension of the fact that the hundreds of years of experience the other characters have had in their tasks might just have some wisdom to guide her actions; she cannot accept authority but has to try her best to manipulate it to her own ends.
Then there are the seemingly endless passages of -- tingly, ooooh he's so handsome, my body melts -- attraction to the main male character. -- Everything's all right just as soon as he touches me; I have to be near him; I don't understand what this is all about.-- (Step out into the hall and let me explain it to you, sister.)
But the straw that broke the camel's back was the quasi-Creationist explanation for the origin of humanity, and the consequences of the garden of Eden events rippling down through the millenia. I was a bit uncomfortable with the religious themes (though they were well disguised by re-naming) but the recounting of humans as not part of evolution, but separate and apart, was too much.
The ending pretty much just drops the reader off in the middle of an event. Boom! Bye! Buy the next book if you want to know what happens, because nothing is resolved in this one, except to learn that the two main characters are soul mates. Quelle surprise!
It didn't make sense to me that the 'queen' was so caustic to Lucy. And then Lucy kept saying things to the effect of 'that is so just like the queen' when she only knew the lady for several hours. Then just the overall immaturity of the tone of the book bothered me. Lucy, the narrator/heroine was supposed to be graduating college around the start of the book - so 22ish, maybe a bit younger if she did things in a hurry - but her attitude and dialogue seemed more along the lines of a young teenager to me.
I could go on, but it's not really worth my time. This book may appeal to younger people, but I wouldn't really recommend it to anyone. I did finish it, and there are books I haven't been able to because they're so bad. So I guess the book could be worse.
This book throws together so many religious, evolutionist theories that it's kinda hard to take it seriously. The end was absurd! We're Adam and Eve, that's why you lust for me. Really?
The main character is a whiny selfish idiot. The supporting characters only show up to be decoration.
The whole concept of these idiots protecting souls and vampires are just to stupid and convoluted.
I'm only thankful this book was free that's the only redeeming quality.
