Slow to start, but suddenly it grabbed me by the throat and absolutely wouldn't let go again. It's been a couple of days since I finished it, and I still find myself thinking of it, and remembering the atmosphere of the book. I may have to prioritize reading the sequel higher than I had originally planned-It's very definitely Twilight for adults. There are SO many similarities between the two books - or rather between Edward and Matthew, and between the relationships described. A lot of the things Matthew said to Diana, I could totally have seen Edward say to Bella. That's not a bad thing though - I really liked Twilight, and while I noticed the similarities, they didn't bug me.4 stars rather than 5 simply because it did take rather a long time for it to start properly, and because it ended on a fierce cliffhanger with absolutely nothing resolved, but as a whole, I'd say I enjoyed it a lot more than I had expected to.
