An interesting and enjoyable read though it was a tiny bit slow for me at the beginning. I think I had to get used to the Victorian-ish dialogue. It did pick up and by the end I really enjoyed it. Alexia reminds me of a paranormal Mary Poppins with an edge. An unflappable demeanor, dry humor, and proper etiquette at all times...even in the face of fangs and fur! :) Definitely looking forward to the next book in the series!
