I think the plot and characterization of “bloodsuckers” injected new life into the oversaturated paranormal vampire romance genre (but don’t tell Mun Oh I referred to him as the v-word).
I would rate those two elements ✯✯✯✯✯, but there were times when the mechanics of the story bothered me. There was a lot of head-hopping which made it hard to follow what was happening (especially when I couldn’t tell if Mun Oh was using his telepathic powers or not).
Other than that, I immensely enjoyed this book and highly recommend it to others.
