I also really liked the characters. Zoey was strong and sarcastic, without ever becoming suicidally mouthy. Daniel was the silent type, but he had a surprising vulnerability to him. There were also saucy side kicks, sexy bits on the side and even a beautiful bouncing baby.
I did find the book quite repetitive. We are told the same things over and over again. I really can't abide by love triangles (and honestly, it's the triangle that makes me consider not continuing the series) and I don't AT ALL understand Zoey's decision at the end of the book (I was a bit infuriated by it.), especially since she knows Daniel is coming back.
I also found the tone of the sex scenes inconsistent with the rest of the book. By this I mean that while the whole book is soft, hazy, true love the sex is of the raunchy, gritty, f_ck-you-into-the-mattress kind. Now, I like that kind just fine, but it didn't at all fit the rest of the book or the characters outside of the bedroom.
All-in-all, I found it a well written, funny fantasy romp.
Ms. Blake does a great job of creating a world full of vampires, werewolves, witches, fairies, trolls, and demons. It is ironic that it is easy to suspend your disbelief with characters like these when they are well-written when so many authors are unable to write a credible story about modern life. The plot is fast paced with twists and the dialogue is fun. The romance angle is well done, although if you have a horror of love triangles, you should be aware that this story has one. It is done in a sensitive way which is why I compared it to the Kathleen Turner.
The only issue, is that there is a cliff-hanger. Although I hate them, the good news is that I actually want to read the second book because I liked the first one so much.
"That's how I woke up under a bridge with a monster hangover and a date with an earthbound faery prince."
""Yer mother, God rest her beautiful soul, is crying her heart out somewhere in Heaven." My father managed to squeeze out a single tear meant to induce maximum guilt. "My mother is in Cleveland. I talked to her Saturday."" Ha!
""You look beautiful, girl." My father was waiting as I closed the bedroom door behind me. "You're going to make such a lovely corpse when the demon murders ya.""
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Neil, who is a werewolf is one of the members of the crew and always has Zoey's back is an interesting character. He is not your typical were. I have to say that my favorite character is Dev. He is Fae and shunned by his people for being a halfling. He is charming, sexy, handsome and rich and also wants Zoey. Makes for an interesting love triangle. There are many other subplots throughout the story that make you want to stay up all night to finish reading the book. This is a great series and I can't wait to read the next books.
