Meet Siobhan Quinn - half vampire, half werewolf, and retired monster hunter. Or so she thought. Three years have passed since Quinn turned her back on Providence, Rhode Island’s seedy supernatural underbelly, walking out on Mr. B. and taking a bus headed anywhere. She hoped her escape would give her some peace from the endless parade of horrors. But a dead girl who quarrels with the moon can't catch a break, and on the streets of Manhattan Quinn finds herself caught between a rock and a hard place. Again. What do you do when you're stuck in the middle of a three-million-year-old grudge match between the ghouls and the djinn and accidentally in possession of a hellish artifact that could turn the tide of the war, all the while being hunted by depraved half-ghoul twins intent on taking the object and ushering in a terrifying Dark Age? Especially when you've fallen in love with the woman who got you into this mess - and you ain't nobody’s hero….
I loved the performance by Amber Benson. She really brought each of the characters to life. Each had their own voice that was unique and clearly recognizable. However, I really struggled to finish the story. As the main character pointed out: "info dump". The story had several of them. I normally enjoy a detailed storyline, but there was a very large and unfamiliar in-depth background mythology to work through as well as character background. I think it would have been easier to swallow in smaller bites over more books.
My god it was like this book was written by a few high school students extremely disappointed. Such a letdown!!!!
