To be honest, I kind of felt like this book wasn’t of the same caliber as the rest of the series. I enjoyed some of it, particularly the mythology and magic tying the case to ancient Egypt. Otherwise, though, I felt like it was maybe a bit too much of a stretch. Not that any of the series is particularly supposed to be “realistic”, but I just didn’t find the antagonist to be all that interesting, never mind plausible.
The first thing I thought when I started reading this book was that I was so over the whole vampire and werewolf storyline. It’s just been done to death. Once I got into the story, though, I realized that it would be different than the others.
