IDK, maybe my expectations were a bit high. Although I've read (AND LOVEEEE!) the Demonica series, I felt a bit disoriented during the first quarter of this book. I do like Larissa's writing style and the world/characters she creates but this book didn't completely enthrall me like her Demonica series. The ending was a bit too "wrap it up & make it sweet" for me. Also, War was described as sex on a spoon hot but ... he was a irritating. Cara, too. I did like the excerpt for Immortal Rider & will definitely read.
