Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

What the Critics Say

“In the second spin-off from the best-selling Night Huntress series, Frost produces a tale that is wildly romantic as well as action-packed. If Frost keeps this up, fans will need to build more keeper shelves!” (Romantic Times)

    Story
    "couldn't stop listening"
    Where does Eternal Kiss of Darkness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I've "read" a few other books thus far, and I loved the intensity of this story. There was passion, there was a plot. I couldn't put it down.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I couldn't help but fall in love with Kiera. Her character was so tough and smart, but Mencari made her a teen again. It was beautiful to feel her falling in love. It was a book I truly felt.


    What does Tavia Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her voices were not always my favorite, but each character had their own voice signature, and she maintained them so flawlessly, that by the end, I couldn't imagine it without her.


    Any additional comments?

    I started listening while driving back and forth places. As I got past the first few chapters, I found myself pulling out my ear buds and tucking my phone into my shirt so that I could even listen while trying on clothes and grocery shopping. I was beginning to feel as tho the people around me were there simply to interrupt my wonderful story! At the end, I couldn't shut it off even to charge my phone, so I laid next to the wall while it finished!

    "Best Jeaniene Frost Work So Far"

    I love all the Frost books but this one in particular has made me want to listen to it again and again. From the very start you are drawn in and immersed completely. My only caution is that you will not want to stop listening... and you have to sleep sometime :-)

    "A bit boring"

    The story is not rich enough. I lost interest after a few hours. The narrator, however, does a good job.

    "To much sex"

    I have enjoyed this series and the world the author has created immensely. This book however went to far when it came to the frequent sex scenes. I don't know if the publisher pushed her for more racy content or her mind was just in the gutter while writing this. When I found myself getting bored after another long encounter between our two protagonists I gave up and started fast forwarding through them. This book would have been just fine and missed nothing by skipping most of these scenes. They didn't add anything, just seemed to be there for the titillation factor. Besides that, another interesting tale told by Jeaniene Frost

    I love to read but with my busy schedule I barely get a chance to. However, audiobooks allow me to "read" while I manage my crazy life.

    Story
    "A must read for Frost fans."

    If you are a fan of the Night Huntress series with Cat and Bones, then you've met Bone's Grandsire (what a hoot) before. This is Mencheres' book and the events take place after "Destined For an Early Grave" (Night Huntress series) and "First Drop of Crimson" (Night Huntress World novel). I have always found Mencheres fascinating. He is powerful beyond belief and his tragic love story was something I wanted to see rectified.

    I loved this book! It is one of my favorites of the entire series (including Night Huntress). Mencheres was exactly what I expected and more and Kiera was a perfect match. Their chemistry comes flying off the pages and you are cheering for their HEA the entire time. The overarching plot as well as the love story is well done and moves very smoothly although the ending is rather abrupt. I wish there was at least an epilogue or something, anything. I really wanted more Kiera and Mencheres.

    Narrator:
    5/5
    Tavia Gilbert narrates all the Night Huntress, Night Prince, and the Night Huntress World series. I like that the producers stayed with the same narrator even if the characters are not the same. The consistency in pronunciation, accents, and voices help the listener dive into the story without a hitch and I've read other comments that didn't like the way Gilbert does Bones' voice and accent, but I don't mind it so much. It does hamper his masculinity a bit, but his witty humor fits well with the accent.

    "It's not the best, but still very good"

    I think the story of the oldest, most powerful vampire needs to be epic. This book, while a good read, wasn't as memorable or grand as the character deserved.

    "good enough but not amazing"

    I would have given it a higher score if the reader could give a better voice for Mechere. She gave him such an old voice that i have a hard time imagine a man that looks like he is in his twenty.... of course he suppose to be really old but... at least give him a more lower and sexier voice... not an 80 years old man voice.... not sexy at all.

    "Book Okay, Narration Not As Good"

    The story line was fine. This is the first audio book I've purchased in this series. The narration was adequate until the narrator, Tavia Gilbert, did Bone's voice. It was absolutely horrible! I almost stopped listening to the book and considered going to buy the paperback because the voice for Bone's was so bad. The voice most definitely did not come even close to matching the character created in the "...Grave" books. I won't purchase any further audio books in this series due to the narration - I'll have to read these unless the narration changes.

    "Something a little more 'grown up' than Twilight"

    The second spinoff from the Night Huntress series, is again, another winner from Jeaneine Frost. Now overtaking Twilight as my favourite vampire Fantasy author Frost is an addictive writer, once I start one of her books I am hard pushed to stop listening until the end.I have now listened to all of the Night Huntress books and this was my favourite, I had fallen for Mencheres from the first time his character was introduced and so a whole book with him as the hero was a real treat.

    Mencheres is Bones?s Grandsire, a sort of father figure and a superpowered master vampire who refers to him self as ?older than dirt?. Kira is a straight talking private investigator, with a pure heart and strong sense of morality. One night on her way home from work Kiras stumbles on Mencheres being beaten by ghouls which starts and adventure that changes her life forever.

    I loved both Mencheres and Kiras characters, their chemistry is tantalising and Frost teases you with it until you are practically screaming at the characters to finally get together! If you love Vampire stories but wish there was something a little more 'grown up' than Twilight then look no further! However don't start with this book, get the first novel and work your way through the whole series. You won't regret it.

    "Heartstopping"

    What an amazing book this is. I started it last night and found it impossible to put down. A powerful romance, edge-of-the-seat action, and a male and female lead to rival the classics, this is a must for any lover of vampire fiction.

    "A good Listen/Read"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this book - it shows the back story to part of the Night Huntress.


    What other book might you compare Eternal Kiss of Darkness to, and why?

    A Drop of Crimson another book that shows the back story to another character from the Night Huntress series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes it was but not possible as I cannot listen continually for such a length of time but if it were in book form you could say I couldn't put it down.


    Any additional comments?

    Eternal Kiss of Darkness is an action and lustful story. Fits in well with the rest of the series. I will be watching for any new books in the series. I have no doubt I will listen to this again.

    "Excellent storyline"

    I adore this authors series, really need to be listened to in order as the protagonists evolve. Each book has an interesting storyline, that goes at a cracking pace. Do yourself the favour of allowing the time to hear each book without interruption, give yourself the pleasure. We all deserve to to have a little time luxury.
