I absolutely loved the first 1/2 of this book. After that, it seemed to have lost its ugh err magic. So many of the things that happened just seemed so 'unlikely'. Isn't that what makes for a good story? To be so caught up that you are not really sure if this could really happen or not.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading about the old manuscripts with the handwritten notes in the margins of these ancient texts. It seemed as if Harkness had actually held those books in her hands. I enjoyed the idea of living among witches, vampires and daemons without knowing it. The next time I see someone that seems a bit odd, I will be thinking about the beings in this story.
Unfortunately, there just wasn't enough here to make want anymore and I am not so sure that I will read the next book when it comes out in 2012.
