I gave it a 3 star because I like the Angel/Vamp/Hunter world. However, I had absolutely no interest in Jason or Maniya. Their stories and the murder mystery just dragged out.There served no purpose for Dimitri and Honor to be in this book. They brought nothing to it.This new power surge just served as a prop to bring in more good and bad guys. I don't think it was handled well.This was definitely not my favorite.
