Really fun read. Comparisons to Buffy are inevitable: young girl called to be a vampire slayer, endowed with exceptional strength through "magical" means, struggling to balance a real life with that duty. Gleason manages to impart her own twist on the theme.
The Regency setting meant Victoria had to also deal with the limited freedom women were granted. Raised to aim for nothing more than a good marriage, Victoria is determined to achieve that aim in addition to fulfilling her destiny. Slowly realizing that it may not be as easy as she thinks, Victoria has some tough decisions to make.
I didn't really care for Victoria's main love interest; he came across as tame and booring. Sebastian and Max both had more presence. I will definitely be looking for the next book.
