This book is pretty traditional as far a vampire characteristics are concerned, nothing really new there. However K. Sparks really puts a humorous spin on this story, I found myself laughing a lot. So if you like a less dark and a more lighthearted/funny story with plenty of action to keep you entertained you will be well pleased with this book. I will be continuing with this series and will hopefully be caught up by the time the newest one comes out March 29, 2011.
