“Huff takes a wild mix of genres and weaves them into a surprisingly successful fantasy-mystery series [...] this mystery has a very strong and somewhat gritty contemporary setting [...] more than entertainment enough.”
“A dab hand at creating atmosphere and menace, Huff has no qualms about putting her characters through hell and so keeps the level of tension high throughout. Entertaining.”
“A great slice of mixed genre thriller/mystery/vampire/mummy kinda thing and adds nicely to the series so far.”
