Good story but repeating past facts over and over felt like she was writing to someone with memory problems. I had to stop listening from the annoyance a few times before I finished the book.

The issues I have with this series (and writer) are these:
1. She constantly restates what has already been said, sometimes even in the same or adjoining chapter. This includes the continual harping on her dying friend, restating over and over about Max, her brother, Ambrose and so on.
2. Zoe is 300+ years old, if she spent that much time in her head regretting her past - she'd be in a psych ward somewhere - or would have killed herself.
Having said that- when you make it past those points, this book got better than the last for the plot. There we're times in the first book that circumstances were really forced and there were far too many conveniences. Good job on the improvement.
Also, is there a more charming character than Dorian (sure, impetuous and sometimes immature for being 150 - but hey - no gargoyle is perfect right?), who just flat out saves Zoe from herself, and us from her character (and tendency) of being overly retrospect? Seriously.
A good next novel, looking forward to the improvements continuing - and loved the Poirot references :)
