At the age of 21, Savannah is working for Paige and Lucas. The book starts as she receives some crime scene photos that have a supernatural element. Packing her things she runs off to the small town of Columbus in order to investigate.
I loved the character of Savannah, she's confident, bolshie and very much like her mother. She doesn't suffer from much in the way of self doubt and unlike Elena, doesn't wallow in her 'tragic backstory tm'. I enjoyed the mystery and was hooked on finding the answers. I even enjoyed the obligatory relationship.
However, having said that... the last quarter of the book wasn't particularly inspiring. My issues stemmed from the arrival of Adam (the obvious future love interest) and the ultimate unveiling of the mystery. The cliffhanger at the end of the book annoyed me as part of the reason I love Kelley Armstrong is her lack of cliffhangers. You don't have to read the next book in the series if you don't want to. The cliffhanger was unnecessary and purely designed to sell the next book.
The identity of the culprit came out of the left field and it bugged me. I can't say too much because I don't want to spoil the plot, but I would have loved 'any' other conclusion.
Will read the next book, but unfortunately it drops 2 stars.
