I found this book between 2 and 3 stars. It was an ok vampire story with the requisite evil bitches, sweet innocent heroine and such. It wasn't bad but it wasn't great. I don't think I'll read any more in this series but I would check out anther Barbara Elsborg book if I saw one. My favorite part of this story was the stuffed animals who were obviously three enchanted beings (dragon, unicorn, and some kind of princess).
