ShortNSweet: Had major issues with the heroine and her bigotry towards other species. I just couldn't connect with her. Her dramatic overreactions to every species different than her really grated on my nerves. She starts coming around but by the time it happens I'm not endeared to her. There are some interesting things going on, which will probably lure me into giving the second book a try... but I was a little disappointed in this one.
