This is an absolutely wonderful book. I really love reading vampire stories and this has got to be one of the better ones I've ever read. The main character changes throughout the story. The change is gradual and you're left wondering which moments, exactly, were the ones that cause him to shift. The antagonist is an awesome character, someone who I started out hating to love and then just began to love him. He's very much a vampire, and yet has a sense of wonder to him.
The story is wonderful but there were a couple of times where the book slowed down and I had to put it down and come back to it later. It's well worth the read.
