My Thoughts: This one was middle ground for me. I started reading these because I missed the old Nick. He was in full force in this book. I also loved having some of the regulars from the early Dark Hunter books present.
That said, I didn't care for Nick's mom much in this one. Usually I like her and her love for her son is obvious but she seemed way to wishy washy for me. Her reasoning behind it did not work for me the way it worked for Nick.
I'm also not sold on Kody. Maybe if I didn't have all the info from the DH series I would be able to just go with this story line but my brain is refusing to mesh the two.
Overall it was a good read just not my favorite of this series. I liked the new characters from the underworld (I know, they're evil...). It looks from the ending that we may finally find out what happens when/if Nick finds out who/what Kody really is and why she is there. Long wait until March 2013 :(
