Interesting world building, hampered by a bog-standard Nonsensically Reckless Urban Fantasy Heroine and her Mysterious/Dangerous Love Interest. I'm quite interested to know more about the universe the author has created, as well as some of the secondary characters and villains, but we'll see how quickly my patience runs out with this Feisty and Independent Heroine. Also, the transition from slavery to love interest was handled...awkwardly. I didn't buy the psychological gyrations of the heroine. It felt like there was a lot of handwaving and trust-building experiences that happened offscreen.
Basically, how much more would I have enjoyed this book if it weren't first person narration? So much.
