More like 3.5 stars. Better than the Georgina Kincaid series already, although there's still a whiff of Mary Sue about the character (everyone who meets her wants to have sex with her, beyond the central premise about the prophecy). Also love triangle, ugh. I can already tell she isn't going to end up with the guy I want her to. But love triangles in one form or another seem inevitable for a Richelle Mead series. At least there's enough of an actual plot around the romance to make the book worthwhile. Her take on fairies is interesting and I do want to see more of the world and how it all works.
