I enjoyed this book, as well as The Wolf Within, but not as much as I expected I would. It's entertaining, plenty of action and romance. Purgatory is a prison for paranormals - werewolves and vampires. But there's something bad happening there. Olivia is a doctor who goes into the prison to do some research - she wants to know what makes paranormals kill. But things go very wrong and Olivia isn't safe. Shane's a vampire who is working undercover. Luckily, he's able to assist Olivia in escaping when the prisoners break free.
There's a lot of action in this book, the characters are constantly on the run or fighting, but I didn't feel like there was much depth to the paranormals. I guess I wanted to know more about Shane and his vampire past, or how being a vampire affected his life. He just seemed like a normal guy who happened to also be a vampire. Also, I didn't feel any strong emotional connection to the characters' romance. Nonetheless, this is still a fun book.
I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.
I received a review copy of this book via NetGalley.
