I checked out Talon and I liked the author's writing style a lot. I was a bit hesitant reading this because I really loathe vampire stories but man..this book just blew my mind and I couldn't put it down. It is so beautifully written. The main character is really epic and there is action unlike in TALON. Second book that has a powerful FEMALE/ASIAN lead!! Really loved this book. 5 stars.
