This book was okay. I the world building confused me but i eventually grew to the like the characters. It way it was written was not as strong as i would like. I will read the sequel. I did like the 2 perspectives though.

Superb. It really feels like a story taken from the Younger Edda, especially when told through the lens of Willa and Dana. Willa is such a delicious character. She has an interesting mix of being repulsive and benevolent but only in the worst of ways. Dana, on the other hand, is very much maternal and combative to the world around her. Much of the story is centered around these two mothers unwittingly being the catalyst for their family's destruction. This, however, is a small backdrop to all the themes and motifs used to tell an allegorical tale about trying and failing to stay afloat when you are a member of the downtrodden. Another important element is how society treats women and how women rise above that. Diane and Tina, for example, are prime examples of this. Which reminds me of that famous scene in Dolores Clairbourne when Vera says "Sometimes you have to be a high-riding bitch to survive. Sometimes being a bitch is all a woman has to hold onto" Plenty of motifs are present but none is used more consistently than this. Even though I loved the book I was really bummed about the ending. W.T.F, like really? I can't have one slither of hope in this world, you gotta take that away from me too! Overall I was really taken aback by how much I cared for these characters especially Dylan and Gren. (how could you?) and Can you puh-lease write a romance novel?… (lisätietoja)

Somehow, my copy of the e-book didn't make it clear that the subtitle is "A novel of Cleopatra, the Vampire." I'm not really into vampires, and vampire in Classical Egypt was just too much of a stretch. I've read some of Headley's other books and loved her writing, but the writing in this was not engaging enough to draw me in. I didn't finish.
