OK, not exactly a 3, but not a 4 - 3.5 stars.If you suspend belief and just go along with the ride, this is a fun book to read. Well built and beefy vampires that only feed on other vampires, fighting with another form of the undead, half-human/half-vampire girl that changes into a vampire, lots of knives, guns, and other assorted weapons are all in this book. There was a secondary plot in the book that just annoyed me. Bring on more Wrath and Beth, I didn't care for Mr. X and his minions. Can't wait to start reading the next book.
