I enjoyed this book more the second time around. I originally read it when it was first released and didn't really fall that much in love with it. But I felt more of a connection the second time around.
The story is very dark, but not depressingly moody. All of the characters have a personality of their own, and I loved all of them. Well nearly all of them.
It was strange reading about the world as we know it, but different somehow. For those that love urban fantasy this is a must.
