I love Emma, she doesn't even blink about the vampires. She has confidence in herself and goes through life in a free spirited kind of way. She never wallows in self pity. She is so different than other heroines (including Kiera).
Teren was awesome. He was a great guy. He is kind, caring, he still blushes at times, but he can be protective too. I liked his family as well.
The ending of book one was sweet.
