The series also received a warm welcome, got many positive reviews, even on the IMDb site the series got an 8.5 / 10 score. But despite many positive reviews, the series did not escape shortcomings, one of them was in terms of dialogue, a lot of heavy dialogue, and difficult to understand, even in some scenes, there was a lot of dialogue between players who seemed stiff and a little bit forced. The series also focuses too much on romance between Diana and Matthew, where they can explore more about Demons, Vampires, or even Witches. The supporting players were less used properly. But even though there are some drawbacks, this series is indeed good, and is worth watching, the players’ acting is very good, plus the chemistry between the two main players, is worthy of later.
