Drink, Slay, Love - Sarah Beth Durst 3.5 stars

Interesting characters, believable and solid development and an actual plot. I was not a fan of Durst's last book, Enchanted Ivy, but this was much better. A likeable and non-idiot/push-over boyfriend material. The unicorn spin and her presentation of the vampires and their culture - incredibly violent and heartless, even the Family - completes the setting. I really enjoyed Pearl's voice, her observations of the humans and everything she goes through as she changes, ever so slowly. A good sense of humor and dialogue that sounded realistic. Definitely worth checking out. I picked it up expecting a rather bland read, but ended up just enjoying the ride with no pressure or intensity pushing at me. It is not a weighty read, but concerns itself with questions of conscience and humanity enough to make it more than just fluff.
