I had heard that this was a bit dry, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I began reading. What a great book and engrossing narrative! I was pleasantly surprised by how cool a character Mina is. I'd expected her to be completely passive, and there was some BS about women and purity -- but Mina also has an active role in her own salvation, and she is clearly portrayed as being just as clever and brave as the men who protect her. Fantastic!
