Of the three or four in the series that I've read I think this has been my favorite so far. Maybe its because I'm a sucker for vampires. Pun intended. If you like fantasy/paranormal, I really recommend this series. The talking skull is my favorite. In case your interested, Patrick Rothfuss (yes, incredible author of The Name of the Wind) recommended this series and I'm extremely grateful for it. Speaking of which, I need to reread that book!
