The book had a really good plot, but the execution of it was overly wordy. The author chose to tell us, the reader, all about the history of the witches, slayers, and some characters, which bogged down this read. On the flip side, I stayed interested enough to finish the story even though this read falls into my B-book rating. Just an okay read. May continue the series as I already have it. Hopefully the author will have a better grasp on the flow of her writing.
