This was not the book it should have been. You've got a vampire hunter with the literal soul of a dragon, a "child of the earth" who can control plants, the evilest vampire ever, and a volcano -- it should be fun, right?
A cheesy, guilty pleasure, sure, but fun.
Nope. Nope, nope, nope.
Saccharine, Barbara Cartland-like emoting, flat characterization, hardly any action, and a criminal overuse of the word "sexy" (like, eleventy-million times).
