Been there, done that.
While mildly entertaining, and a easy fast read, I just had a hard time connecting with this book. At times the writing and story telling is really great, funny and exciting... and other times it is too predictable, and juvenile for my taste (and I read a lot of YA novels, so that is saying a lot).
Demon hunting, a missing magic cup, vampires, werewolves, and magic runes...this books seems to have it all. Especially the all to familiar teen angst of first loves, missing parents, and magic worlds... but something just seems to be missing.
Probably something I would've liked a lot more 18 years ago, but I bought the whole darn series...so I have to finish it.
