"I felt their hate-filled hungry minds vanishing one by one. Finally I could let go. I released the awful burden and awareness left me."
Very enjoyable. I really liked that both magic and technology had powerful effects on the world, but couldn't work at the same time. Making it something new and interesting. The twists on vampires was a bit weird for me, but worked really well in this world. Kate is an amazing character and rather headstrong. She is drawn into solving a mystery involving both the People and the Beasts, and the very personal death of someone extremely close to her. The cost of knowing the truth, could cost her life, but not knowing will drive her crazy, besides people are dying and she has to stop it. I liked several of the twists and am going to continue with the series.
