This is a good addition to the Morganville Vampires series. It would have gotten 4 stars if it weren't for the author's deplorable penchant for ending these books with a cliffhanger. I tend to view suspenseful endings with a bit of suspicion--did the author not think the reader would buy another book without the urgency of putting characters in danger?
That aside, there's some nice attention to detail, growth of various characters and an exciting plot. Definitely worth reading.
