This is my first book by Katie MacAlister and I loved it! Even though it is book #6 in the series, I wasn't lost at all. Perhaps it is a new story line, I guess I'll have to read the others to find out. I like the way the heroine, Pia, isn't a "beautiful person" with a "perfect body" like the leads in many books of this genre. The humor has the right amount of snark-itude and I really liked the addition of the ghosts that follow Pia around. I think the story continues in Book #7, [b:Crouching Vampire Hidden Fang|5132915|Crouching Vampire, Hidden Fang A Dark Ones Novel|Katie MacAlister|http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51NTnb93kAL._SL75_.jpg|5199793], which I can't wait to read!
