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.

I have previously read this book when it came out 9 years ago. I miss the Night Huntress World series. So, after I listened to the newly released Ian and Veritas’ story, I listened to this. I still really enjoyed this story. Frost’s books are so page turningly delightful, gripping, and heart warming I just spent the last 3 hours finishing it when I meant to do other things today.

The performance was delightful, even if I wasn’t happy with the accent employed for the character of Bones. I know he’s a Cockney guttersnipe, but he shouldn’t sound like a caricature or Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins. Other than that, I was extraordinarily pleased with the book.

Master vampire Ian is unrepentant, shameless...and every shade of wicked. He’s made one too many enemies in his two centuries of existence, including Dagon, a demon who now lays claim to his soul. Ian’s only chance to escape Dagon is to join forces with a Law Guardian, but he's never been able to abide by the rules for long.

I loved this one so much. All of the “Night Huntress” novels are fabulous but this one really took my breath away. I always thought there was more to Ian than was visible on the surface but I had no idea the same was true of Veritas.

Derrick is one of the creatus, created beings who have lived on the Earth for more than 4,000 years. Many questions surround the origin of these sentient beings who are stronger than humans, eat differently, and live longer. But they were created just as we were, maybe even before us. It is from them we obtain our fairy tales - and our nightmares. They are the reason we believe in superheroes - and monsters. Because...they exist.

I loved the storyline and plan on buying and finishing the series. The narrator is talented but someone, somewhere during production, should have corrected his pronunciations. I’m not sure the narrator knows that the word library has 2 R’s in it. That’s just the beginning of quite a few mispronounced words. It was quite distracting.
