From the Publisher:

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Night Huntress series comes a breathtaking new journey to the dark side of desire.

The night is not safe for mortals. Denise MacGregor knows all too well what lurks in the shadows—her best friend is half-vampire Cat Crawfield—and she has already lost more than the average human could bear. But her family's past is wrapped in secrets and shrouded in darkness—and a demon shapeshifter has marked Denise as prey. Now her survival depends on an immortal who lusts for a taste of her.

He is Spade, a powerful, mysterious vampire who has walked the earth for centuries and is now duty-bound to protect this endangered, alluring human—even if it means destroying his own kind. Denise may arouse his deepest hungers, but Spade knows he must fight his urge to have her as they face the nightmare together . . .

Because once the first crimson drop falls, they will both be lost.

My thoughts:

I was so excited about the release of the first novel set in the Night Huntress universe. I’m a total Cat and Bones fangirl and couldn’t wait to see what else Jeaniene Frost could do with the awesome world she has created.

First Drop of Crimson was almost as good as the Night Huntress series. I loved Spade’s character. I’ve been fascinated by him since his first appearance in Cat's world. I thought Denise was just ok. Thankfully Spade’s character was more than entertaining enough to keep me reading. I also loved that other familiar faces made an appearance in this spin off. Namely Ian! Naughty as he may be I just can’t get enough. Hopefully he’ll get his HEA in a future book.


  1. I love to read too. I just wish I had more time to do it. Between blogging and 4 little boys, it goes by the wayside. Found you via SITS. Glad I did.
