I'm glad I didn't gave up on the series after the Drakhouse. I did had few issues with it, but I liked it much better than the first book and it made me want to read the rest of the series.
I think the only reason I didn't like this book as much as the majority of readers is that I didn't find the whole shapeshifter-thing very interesting *whispering "I have read better ;-)*
But the book had enough interesting things going on to keep me reading. The whole mystery surrounding Dex is very interesting. And, even though the story is told from Perry's pov, after I finished the book, I realized that I don't know much about her either. Everybody keep saying that she is something special, but I yet to see that :).
I find Dex hard to figure out. Sometimes I think he is being a dick and other times he's sweet, sexy and considered, but always very mysterious :).
I love the fact that I can't figure him out :).
They had a deal to always be honest with each other and keep demanding that the other one will talk and share if there is something, but readers get to see that there is a lot they keep keeping to themselves :).
One other thing. There is his girlfriend, which might or might not exist. He keeps talking to her on the phone and her name pops out sometimes in the conversation, but we never get to meet her.
I am eager to find out what role is she going play in the Dex's and Perry's story, if she does exist. Dex could be pulling our leg for all we know :-D.
All and all, not bad, not bad at all.
