I am a little torn in my opinion of this book. I am a certainly a fan of Nalini Signh's work, even her earlier non-paranormal works. This new series, however, is WAY too dark for me. I have a hard time dealing with extreme violence and this book had it in spades. There was tons of blood, guts, and gore, which is not in my comfort zone. In addition, the book focuses much more on the action/story arc than the romance. As a die-hard romance fan, I was a little disappointed in this. The hero is an angel, but he more fits my traditional mold for a vampire: dark, sensual, ruthless, and violent. The heroine, while very brave and spunky, is a little over the top with the whole defying authority act. She frequently comes off as foolhardy and I wouldn't have been the least surprised if she had been killed off at several junctures in the book. But alas, that is not the modus operandi of the romance genre. Overall, a good book, but not my favorite by Mrs. Singh. None-the-less, I will still read the next in the series to see how story continues.
