Coming off the high that was Lover Awakened, this was a disappointment. I'll be honest. I have never taken to Butch. His actions in the first book left a bad taste in my mouth and while he had gotten better, I still did not like him. Also the use of "baby" as a pet name makes my skin crawl and he used it all the time.
The book was saved by the overall story between the lessers and the vampires. I still enjoy that aspect and making Butch into a vampire and him being a prophecised warrior is interesting and I will continue the series to see where it goes.
