The Book of Life

So I finished the series.  This was way better than the second book, which isn't saying much, but it still didn't live up to the promise of the first book.

I thought it was unfortunate that the witch parts weren't as well-developed as the vampire parts.  Well-developed isn't really the right word for it though, since the vampire parts throughout the series were overwrought and complicated.  I just don't care about vampires; witches are much more interesting.  And there was so much more than could have been done with daemons.  I thought all the vampire politics and posturing ended up dominating and pretty much ruining what could have been an amazing series.
