My reviewrating: 2 of 5 stars
Clare is trying to out-angst Buffy, but without including the humor of that series. Her twist on Vampire Simon (that he can go outside in the sun) is probably going to be explained in the next book (oh wait, it's got to do with Jace, right?) but it's nothing new - Yarbro's Count St. Germain can.
The plot is interesting enough to make for an entertaining read, but the lack of real originality makes this an 'if I happen across the next one' rather than an 'I'm actively seeking the next one'.
