Second in Night Huntress World Series
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 either the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal destruction.
When I began this book I honestly did not believe I would enjoy it as much as I did the rest of what she’s written. What I found was the best book in the both series.
Menechares always seemed so cold, old, and unwilling to confirm to today’s society. What I found was a book that had more depth than anything else I’ve read of hers to date. Menechares is powerful enough to kill hundreds with mere thoughts, but strong enough to hold his power in check most of the time.
Kira, I’m more in love with than Cat. She is relatable, but strong enough to survive in a world that is so different than our own. Her heart is what is going to heal Menechares of years of grief and torment.
There is enough action to keep this book from being boring, but balanced enough to lend to great characters.
Again I recommend this book and anything she’s written.
