An unusual take on vampires, it works well. The main character is likeable. My only criticism of this book is that it felt like it was building up to something and didn't. I know that it is part of a series and perhaps this was more scene setting, introductory book.
Drake and his siblings are intriguing. I found the book a little short, but that is just my personal preference and not necessarily a bad thing. I think that the introduction of the best friend was clever and well thought out added a new dimension to it. All in all a good read and I will definitely be buying the series.
