Pretty decent read. I do like urban fantasy, however, I find most of it annoying when written by female writers. Too much romance and sex in the books. I'm no prude, but it really gets in the way of a good fantasy novel. This book has just a tiny bit too much of that sort of thing, but not as bad as some. The characters are well drawn and the plot was good.
