synopsys got it wrong
ignoring the violence as it is a strong theme in this book there is really nothing else negative about it. all the things that could be considered not for young children are discredited by the way it is looked at. the main character Jamie may not seem like the best role model but in hindsight he is being viewed at a time when he is in extreme distress from losing his mother. the most sexual thing in this book are a few kisses that happen between Larissa and jamie, and there is little swearing. there is however a fair amount of drinking and drug references but they are for the most part looked at very negatively as the vampires are mixing the drugs with blood and aside from that the only real mention of it is that it states that some of the older members of the department spend some time in a bar.
also in the synopsys it states that jamie watches his father shoot himself. this is not true, his father is shot down when a group of dark figures notices he has a gun. so if you have an issue media regarding suicide you wont find problems here. also it states that the vampires are mixing meth with blood but that is incorrect, they are mixing it with heroin.
