Review: Eternal Kiss of Darkness by Jeaniene Frost
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 her 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.
Truthfully I wasn't looking forward to reading this book like I am Vlad, Ian, or even another Cat/Bones book. Mencheres wasn't as great a secondary character to me as some of the rest. But this book very pleasantly surprised me. He turned out to be a very sexy hero with a very strong take no shit heroine. I really liked the back story and the bits and pieces we learn about Ms. Frost's supernatural world in this book. This book just made salivate more for the next book in this series. This book could very well stand on it's on but reading it in order with the series could only increase the enjoyment of this book.
I give this book 4 1/2 stars and would recommend it to anyone. I purchased this one with my own money for my personal use.
