I actually liked it better than the first book. Maybe that was because I already knew all the characters and back story.
Of course she had to include a lot of information about the back story in this book so those folks who hadn’t read the first book wouldn’t be totally lost.
In this book Alexis finds out that her real parents are not going to give her the fairy tale she was thinking of. In fact it looks like they are not going to be any better than her human “adoptive” parents.
She grows up a bit in this book which I like. There was also a lot of action and interesting byplay with all the different love interests. One of the love interests is a several thousand year old vampire who she is told she has to marry. She is not happy about that as you can imagine.
It is a good read.
