Quickie Review: Eternal Kiss of Darkness by Jeaniene Frost

Publisher: Harpercollins
Where did you get the book: Out now
Release date: Out now

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.

I love the Cat and Bones series by Jeaniene Frost pretty damn hard. I’m not always a fan of vampires, but the romance and depth she brings to her characters is top notch! Eternal Kiss of Darkness is a stand alone novel in the Night Huntress world. I’ve always been a fan of Mencheres, and since I’m slowly coming out of my self imposed ban on Urban Fantasy books, I went to Amazon and downloaded this asap.

Eternal Kiss of Darkness is my least favorite book out of the series. The romance itself I enjoyed, but I wasn’t a huge fan of Kira. I found her to be a little bland in her personality, and the spooky mysterious air Mencheres had sort of disappeared. Kira seemed to attach herself to Mencheres very quickly, and I found her to accept his past and what he did all too easily. I do love Vlad and I was excited seeing him make an appearance. I can’t wait for Vlad’s book to come out at the end of this month as the whole story of the heroine sounds really exciting. The action picked up towards the end of the book, and I enjoyed seeing the supernatural world expand into dark magic which was new.

All in all, Eternal Kiss of Darkness is an enjoyable read, but the characters and plot of the book seemed low in energy. I give it a B-.

I agree, I wasn’t thrilled with this one either but I liked First Drop of Crimson even less 🙁 I was surprised because I loved the Cat & Bones books so much.
