I knew it was a teen version of the early Dark Hunter books, so wasnt expecting a lot, but with a 5 star rating I hoped for better. Nick was much more likeable in the adult books. He pretty much starts off as a brat here, rather than turning into one a few books later. Im not quite finished, but at least this offers some excusesdemonic forces for a fledgling hero becoming a villian despite the efforts of the good guys. Maybe the 5 stars came from teen readers, I think my 3 stars are more than generous..
