I couldn't put this book down. Anne Bishop is on trend with the Grimm-esque urban fantasy world. It makes sense and is engaging. People's names are easy to pronounce. It isn't esoteric.
The romance is tasteful. Anne Bishop can come off as sleazy. I'm a little creeped out by werewolf romance, so I'm not reading it for the romance. Bishop's humor is on point (a police officer's kid is named Lizzie Borden, the local radio station is WZAS).
This book is dangerous. The man character cuts and her magic is in her blood. The cutting releases the magic. Not a fan of this, but there are hints that Bishop is going to show a way that Meg can access her magic without cutting.
Definitely going to keep on reading the series.
