This book took me a little to get into but then it hit a point where I was completely invested and wanted to see what was going to happen. I think at the beginning it was just taking me a bit of time to figure out whose side everyone was on and what the links were between the various characters.
I really liked Harrow and how conflicted he was. He hated that he was the cause of this disease yet I'm still not 100% how he even got it. He was willing to go through anything to help find a cure and save those infected. He had such a huge heart and truly fell for Jordan and wanted to break down her walls.
I liked Jordan and understood why her walls were in place. She really wanted revenge and knew that she may not come back if she was able to get through to the vampire that caused her parents death. Yet through Allison and Gail she was able to open her heart and then allow Harrow in.
All of the other characters on the "good" side were great and I really liked Tack Pritchard. He was ready to do anything to find a cure for Allison and his compound was a safe place where he wanted everyone to feel free.
I can't wait to see where the rest of the series goes!
