I think that my 3 star rating reflects more on myself rather than this book.
It was interesting and tightly paced. The characters seemed well rounded and developed and I know very little about the time period that this story is set in (Civil War - History wasn't my favorite in school) but it seems fairly accurate from my sketchy memories.
The problem lies in the fact that I am pretty much sick to death of vampires.
If you're not, this is a solid read.
