A thin, clumsily wrought story provides the vehicle to introduce readers to Kat and Bones, two lusty vampires trying to make a go of love in spite of lurking threats. I read a Sylvia Day novel last year that had all the same elements of this romance. I like Gideon Cross and Eva Trammel better than these two, and the story there was much more interesting and far better constructed. I'll maybe look at the next book or two in this series to see if things (hopefully the writing?) improve. Otherwise, I can seek elsewhere for superior urban fantasy - thank you, Jim Butcher!
