    I sort of enjoyed the book. However, I have a problem with a couple of things. 1) Matthew is abusive. I have to wonder why authors lately seem to make their heroes abusive. Matthew is controlling, cruel, over protective. As are most of the males in his family. The author tries to redeem them, calling it a vampire trait, that these are honorable men who love their mates. That being said, most of it is unforgivable and we would tell anyone going through what Matthew(and Baldwin) put Diana through to leave, to run, to get away. Yet authors keep making these abusive men heroic, almost begging us to forgive them. This isn't the only book that this is a problem. There seems to be a disconnect between strong men and abusive men especially in Paranormal and Urban fantasy. Authors should remember that domestic abuse is a real thing, and anyone reading their work might be inclined to believe their fantasy of abuse is because they're loved so much by dark and misunderstood people. 2) Another pet peeve that authors of series seem to do is make the first part of the last book so slow, so devoid of any relevance and then in the last chapters, make everything happen at once. Instead of spreading things out, it's like they give themselves a word limit, decide that they've wasted enough time actually writing and now have to finish the story. Harkness left a s***-ton of plot questions unanswered. So, not only did she do a terrible job writing at a pace that flowed, but she failed to answer many questions and grievances she introduced and reiterated making them seem like they were key plot threads. Over all, the series wasn't bad, but the first book was better than the last two. As for the reviewers that do not like this version of Vampire, who have lauded other authors ideas as canon, that's ridiculous. How a character is described is up to the author, and how an author imagines these creatures is personal. There's no such thing as a vampire, so there is no true outline of exactly what a vampire should look like and do outside of keeping to the meaning of the word, a blood drinker. When I read, I don't juxtapose one authors ideas and imagination on another's work. Read with an open mind and the knowledge that the author is sharing a glimpse of their imagination when the work is fictional.
