Despite numerous truces, victories, set-backs, and maneuvers, the war between ordinary humans, magicians, and demons has never ended. But in this book, a wobbly resolution is achieved between them.

This book is, as all of Brennan's Demon books have been, exceedingly clever and twisty. My one problem with it is that although I like all the characters, I don't buy any of the romances--especially not Sin and Alan's. I can see what they like in each other, but it seems like their romance developed very quickly, despite taking up a large part of this book. I really enjoyed this book, but I think less time spent on the ever-shifting love quadrangles between Alan&Mae&Nick&Sin and more time on plot would have made it even better.
