4 1/2 stars. Actioned packed follow-up to where the crazy left off with the last book. While the story kicked in to high gear with the race to Nebraska to protect the evil book from Mallory, the relationship was on hold AGAIN. WTH! After going thru all the that has happened... Come on... When the fight returns back to Chicago, Tate is the outside threat that must be dealt with and big bad GP Vampire counsel is threatening the Cadogen house from the inside. Lots happening, much support from all the supe friends with a nice cliff hanger which makes the wait for the next book too long again.
