- This book is a great urban fantasy, a genre I enjoy. There are a couple of plot dangles and inconsistencies and extreme detail in the sex scenes that affected my score.
- I kept forgetting that I was reading this book for judging and not just reading it because I wanted to. It deals well with mental illness and doesn't get preachy on the good vs. evil battles.
- I liked the writing, but not the topic, but I lean more toward military fiction and military sci-fi.
- This is a very interesting book, especially since I read a lot of paranormal romance. I don't like the god/angel stuff here but the writing is very good.
