I thought about this one for awhile. I originally gave it 4 stars, but finally decided on 5. I am SO going to miss these books! Well, mostly I'll miss Shane (EVERY woman needs a Shane!) and Myrnin. This story put the vampires in a whole new light and made the humans look like real monsters. Things ended as they should have, with most ends tied up. It would be so nice if she'd revisit these characters again sometime down the road. I'd like to see how life progresses for some of them. RECOMMEND!
