If I thought the first book in the series was meh, this one followed suit. It's just more of the same cliches that have been done a thousand times already. Anyone who's read the Blue Bloods series (which is equally meh) will know exactly what I mean. You have pretty much an identical set up, with vampires, the bad vampires, and the part human protectors. I'm not a huge, rabid Twilight fan anymore, but at least Stephenie Meyer created something different.
