One thing this book was really good at was creating atmosphere and scenery. The vivid descriptions of the clothing and the way a character looked were great and well thought out. I also liked how Annie Scarlotte decided to only take out the people that had done bad things instead of preying on the innocent, it just made a lot more sense than killing whoever was nearest including family members which is what happens in many vampire/dhampir novels.

- In moments a bit predictable.
- Sometimes the tiniest bit cheesy.
- Each individual character has a distinct personality.
- Lot of tension towards the end of book.
- Plot twists stay true to story and character’s inspiration.
- Good read if you want to have something to read little snippets of during intervals.
- You gave absolutely no idea how the book is going to end.

- Characters come to life.
- Great idea, as well as though provoking satire.
- Off the chars weird while enjoyable.
- The package includes: Disney Land, an Angel with punk combat boots and wings that change pattern, an average teenager that has an incredibly rare fatal disease, a ginormous road trip with the weirdest characters, and a kickass talking garden gnome and dwarf. I mean…
- Captures interesting aspects of our morals and beliefs.
- Is incredibly well written if we’re talking about the vivid description of places.
- The jokes in the book are sometimes so random and just plain strange, that at one point it feels like you have these inside jokes with the characters.
- The dialogues sounds real, and the characters’ personalities come off great in them.
- Tends to get a little repetitive, and you will see the ending coming as soon as you pick up the novel.
- A little bit too long.
- Doesn’t exactly grip you from the beginning.
- The tone that Libba Bray uses can sometimes come off as though she’s trying to hard to make her characters sound funny and sarcastic can get annoying at times.
