It still feels a little like I'm reliving my Buffy glory days with this one. It is just a fun read. This time, we get to see more of the Demon Underground - other half-demons (especially Shade), with more interesting powers, a lost book of magic, more dealings with vampires, and overall things are getting more interesting. And Fang, the half-terrier, half-hellhound is still there, of course.The romance in this one seems more appropriate (that's the best way I can describe it). I'll read the next one.
