Chicago private investigator Kira Grace …more 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.
But with danger closing in, Mencheres must choose between the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal destruction.
This is the second Night Huntress World book but really the Night Huntress books should be read in order from the first one starting with Cat and Bones story. If you were to skip ahead to the Night Huntress World spin off books you would get serious spoilers!
Once again Jeaniene Frost did not disappoint. She wove another clever tale with it’s own unique story and characters I was anxious to learn more about. We’ve seen Mencheres in previous Night Huntress books and I was excited to read his own story. It was great to get in his head and see his own thought process.
I really liked Kira, a new character and one that stands on her own two feet quite well. Jeaniene makes strong women characters in her stories that really kick a@@. You’d think you’d get tired of them all being so strong and stubborn, but I guess that’s the way vampires need their women. *wink*wink* And I didn’t find myself annoyed at it at all. They are still unique in their own little ways so it’s not like she copies Cat in her new Night Huntress World books.
I like seeing the tidbits of Cat and Bones but enjoyed the story not being focused on them as well. Actually I found myself not really missing them at all. I’ll be happy, and excited, when the next book about them comes out, but I really do love learning more about these side characters. I would love to read more about Mencheres and Kira!
