An immortal war has been brewing in the darkness ... and now one woman has stumbled into the shadows.
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.
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.

"In the second spin-off from the best-selling Night Huntress series, Frost produces a tale that is wildly romantic as well as action-packed. If Frost keeps this up, fans will need to build more keeper shelves!" (Romantic Times)
The second spinoff from the Night Huntress series, is again, another winner from Jeaneine Frost. Now overtaking Twilight as my favourite vampire Fantasy author Frost is an addictive writer, once I start one of her books I am hard pushed to stop listening until the end.I have now listened to all of the Night Huntress books and this was my favourite, I had fallen for Mencheres from the first time his character was introduced and so a whole book with him as the hero was a real treat.
Mencheres is Bones?s Grandsire, a sort of father figure and a superpowered master vampire who refers to him self as ?older than dirt?. Kira is a straight talking private investigator, with a pure heart and strong sense of morality. One night on her way home from work Kiras stumbles on Mencheres being beaten by ghouls which starts and adventure that changes her life forever.
I loved both Mencheres and Kiras characters, their chemistry is tantalising and Frost teases you with it until you are practically screaming at the characters to finally get together! If you love Vampire stories but wish there was something a little more 'grown up' than Twilight then look no further! However don't start with this book, get the first novel and work your way through the whole series. You won't regret it.
What an amazing book this is. I started it last night and found it impossible to put down. A powerful romance, edge-of-the-seat action, and a male and female lead to rival the classics, this is a must for any lover of vampire fiction.
I adore this authors series, really need to be listened to in order as the protagonists evolve. Each book has an interesting storyline, that goes at a cracking pace. Do yourself the favour of allowing the time to hear each book without interruption, give yourself the pleasure. We all deserve to to have a little time luxury.
