I have always been a fan of this author's writing style. I really think she's a talented writer. I have fallen in love with so many of the characters in this series and the vampire academy series. Adrian became my favorite character the more I read about him. He is the biggest reason that I continue to read the bloodlines series. One character I don't like is Sydney, the main character of this series. I continue because I love the writing and I love Adrian. I do have to say that with this particular book, I was happy to see some growth in Sydney's character and her relationship with Adrian. It made her much more likable.
