I enjoyed most of the book. I really liked Blade he was almost a perfect hero.I liked Honoria too. She wasn't stupid. It was heavy on paranormal elements and had a few steampunk elements in it.
My problem was with the world building which was really confusion and last 50 pages or so .
After finishing the book I still don't know how long the blue bloods live,if they age,how can they have unaffected children and lots of other stuff. With main characters there were some issues that remained in the dark.but I won't get to them, too many spoilers.
I'm going to read the 1.5 book which is about Rip and Esme and is free.
