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
When I read that the next book would be about Mencheres I wasn’t so thrilled to be honest. I was like “uhmmm, but why? I would love reading Ian’s or Vlad’s story why him???”
It was so much better than First Drop of Crimson and it truly can compete with Cat and Bones (although they will always be my favorites).
Once I started I couldn’t put it down, I was fascinated by this really REALLY old Vampire, who had so much to suffer with the bad choice of his last wife. He’s such a sad character but inside his heart so unbelievably loyal, caring, and lovely. I even found myself being angry with Cat and Bones ( and I ADORE those two) about how they are so mean to him sometimes.
Mencheres is an ancient ( and I mean really ancient) Vampire who is the Sire of Ian and the grandsire of Bones. He’s around 4000 years old, I mean take this girls! 4000 years is like… uuhmm really really old! Plus he’s extremely powerful!!! So don’t screw with him…
Truly, after reading the book I’m the biggest Mencheres fan! He’s so lonely and sad, it broke my heart! *sniffles*In this book you get to know Mencheres so much better and you start to understand why he did what he did with Cat and Bones. I promise, after you’ve read the book you won’t be angry with him anymore!!!
The whole story is about Mencheres coming back to “life” and finding a new love and it’s such a wonderful story. Kira was an awesome heroine as well and the perfect match for Mencheres. I admired her right from the beginning, she’s not whiny and also is not easily to freaked out! I loved that. Normally such characters that are humans and get to know about Vampires often are freaked out just to get more drama.But not Kira, she’s tough and smart and analyses the facts before judging. This is what I loved most about her.
The connection between those two are powerful, and the plot was fast paced, full of action and love. And certainly we get some steamy hot scenes!

Awesome review. I love Jeaiene Frost! She is such literay genuis. All of her books just get better and better!
I loved this book too. I know I am dating myself when I say that Mencheres reminded me a lot of Methos in the old Highlander television series. There is just something about a character who has lived for so long that fascinates me.

Great review, guys! I have to admit that – while I heart Jeaniene Frost (!) – Mencheres has to be the one character I am not at all interested in finding out any more about, lol … you're totally right about the way he has been portrayed so far … but I'm glad to hear that he has crawled into your hearts, hehe! I will definitely read this one of these days. P.S. I really want a Ian book ;D

Totally true! I can't wait for the next one which will be again a Cat and Bones book!!
Totally true and I'm glad I read the book. I love Mencheres now so much more and I hope to get more of him in the next books!
Gosh and I was a big fan of the Highlander series..
I hope we get a Ian and a Vlad boook!! Pretty Please!
And give it a try Sweetie, I didn't like him either but I do so much after reading the book! I'm pretty sure you will like it!
