Synopsis: Chicago private investigator Kira Graceling should have just kept on walking. But her sense of duty refused to let her ignore the moans of pain coming from inside a warehouse just before dawn. Suddenly she finds herself in a world she's only imagined in her worst nightmares.
At the center is Mencheres, a breathtaking Master vampire who thought he'd seen it all. Then Kira appears, this fearless, beautiful . . . human who braved death to rescue him. Though he burns for her, keeping Kira in his world means risking her life. Yet sending her away is unthinkable.
But with danger closing in, Mencheres must choose either the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal destruction.
I listened to this on audio so I must give props to Tavia Gilbert, this woman can narrate a book with near perfection. I love listening to her narrate Frost's books!
Cons: Hmm....well, beside the awful cover art, I actually had zero issues with this story. I only wish she had a better designer for these covers. They are so cheesy. Thank goodness for ebooks and MP3 audio!
Final Thoughts: I loved this book, even more than First Drop of Crimson. I enjoyed that one, but this was just wonderful, a notch better. Mencheres and Kira's story really drew me in. The connection was there, the drama was there and the story was easy to get into. If Frost ever decided to do more stories with Kira and Mencheres, I would definitely read them!
If you've been reading the Night Huntress series with Cat and Bones, I recommend that you read the two books in the Night Huntress World spin off. If you can, read them after Destined for an Early Grave (book #4) and before This Side of the Grave (book #5). You'll be happy you did.
Happy Reading and Listening,
Read my review of First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World #1), by Jeaniene Frost (Audiobook)
