This was a quick read and the plot is interesting. It puts a slight spin on the typical vampire books you read with the introduction of the conduits.With that said, I struggled with this book. I didn't really care for the main character, Kira. At times she came off as annoying and pushy...I found myself somewhat put off by her personality. The other characters in the story (Luke and Tristan) were interesting and I appreciated getting the back stories on both. At times I found the story somewhat choppy and although it was implied, I felt like the relationship that was happening between Tristan and Kira was rushed and we missed out on something. It seemed as if they just jumped into the I love you's and we just were given the 50,000 foot view of how they got there.It was nice that the preview of the next book was included here - I am interested to see what happens and will add it to my to read shelf out of curiosity.
