I really enjoyed this. I was immediately drawn to and loved both Dominic and Ora, so watching them go from seemingly on opposite sides of an eternal conflict to being thrown together was lots of fun.
The story isn’t as convoluted and complex as some fantasy novels, and I liked that about it. Dominic hunts pijavice (like vampires, but creepier) that stalk the nights of Prague: Ora is a pijavice who has rejected the violent trappings of her kind.
The mystery was fun and I enjoyed the side characters – especially Cord and Kaja. I can definitely see the potential for a sequel, even though the epilogue ties things up nicely. I would be interested in seeing more of Cord and Darina as well.
