Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling 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 shape-shifter 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.

    "Liked it"
    Would you consider the audio edition of First Drop of Crimson to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read the print version.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of First Drop of Crimson?

    The passion of the relationship.


    What aspect of Tavia Gilbert’s performance would you have changed?

    British accent needs a lot of work.


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

    I found it hard to turn it off and finished it in 2 days.


    Any additional comments?

    Just as good if not better than the Cat and Bones story.

    "Repeat Performance"

    Almost the same story as Kat and Bones. The narrator is great at sounding like a spoiled, wining little brat. At times it was hard to continue to listen to the story.

    "Jeaniene Frost books"

    I am thrilled with Jeaniene Frost's books and I cant seem to get enough of them.. The narrater Tavia Gilbert does a fabulous job of making you feel like you are sitting and watching a movie not listening to a book. I highly recommend the Night Huntress World and The Night Huntress Series. Just love them. A very satisfied listener.. :)

    "Just as GREAT as the Night Huntress Series LOVE IT"

    Read the Night Huntress series first, all 5 of them so you will understand this spin off book. I listened after book 4 and it was just too soon. If you love the other series, you will love this as the characters still interact with each other. Just super, pulls you in, keeps you, and wont let you go. Worth the credit or worth the money. Definitely will listen to more than one time.

    "Disappointing"

    Cat and Bones are my favs so I thought this new series would be just as good. It was very disappointing. I didn't finish the book. I absolutely couldn't stand the main female character Denise. She was so whiny and annoying. There was no chemistry between Denise and Spade. Why would he fall for her? It was a waste of a credit.

    "Excellent!"

    This series is addicting!!! Highly recommended. The plot is intricate, characters compelling and narration superb. I often forget that I have not seen these in a movie format because once you begin listening you are immediatly emersed into the world of the night huntress - Thank you Jeaniene Frost for sharing your gift.

    "A Good "Kill-Time" Book"

    The story was well developed, but I found the premise a little hard to swallow. Denise could be a bit needlessly stubborn too, but Spade was sexy and very Alpha male and the tention and shower scene were nice additions to the story. I did NOT enjoy the narrator though. She made Spade sound.... well like a girl. The book did make me laugh and help me pass the time in my car so 3 Stars and
    the sex scenes were steamy, but few and far between. 3 out of 5 chilis for hotness

    "GREAT"

    I was worried that this book wouldn't be as good as the Night Huntress Books, but it was!!!! The same passion, violence, and heroism was in this book, and you get to learn about other characters from the Huntress Books!!! Perfectly written!!! Keep the books a coming!!!!

    "Good, But Not My Favorite"

    I did enjoy this book, and I really like Jeaniene Frost. I would have rated it 5 stars except that I had a hard time even tolerating the character of Denise. She just seemed a little too whiny and weak for the majority of the book. Maybe it's because Cat is such a strong character that it left Denise a little lacking.
    I thougth the narrator, Tavia Gilbert did a fantastic job on Halfway to the Grave. After hearing so many high class British accents, Bones was a delightful change once I got used to it. But after hearing Denise's semi-southern accent, I was a little disappointed with FDOC. She sounded sort of southern, but not really, and she spoke too quickly for a southerner. It would have been more believable to me if the speech was a little more drawn out.
    Anyway, with all the smaller things that I wasn't crazy about, this book still rates a solid 4 stars and if I were rating the book without the narration, the would be a little higher.
    Now, I am off to start Eternal Kiss of Darkness and expect that book to be 5 stars.
