"First Drop of Crimson" by Jeaniene Frost


SERIES: Night Huntress World #1

GENRE: Paranormal Romance
SOURCE: Gifted
LINKS: Goodreads | Book Depository


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...


This was the first time I've read something by Jeaniene Frost (finally!) and I wasn't disappointed at all. I found the writing fluid and captivating, so much that it was practically impossible for me not to enjoy this book.

The plot is intriguing and everything is fast-paced. I may not have been too involved in the relationship between the main characters at first, but then something clicked and suddenly I was all in. Perhaps I didn't completely like Denise, but Spade? Well, there is practically nothing to dislike about him. His personality and his seduction gave me a great time and, together with Bones and Ian, a few good laughs. Speaking of, Bones is definitely the main reason why I want to catch up with the Night Huntress series—I get you now, girls—and Ian is the I-always-get-your-attention-babe kind of character that fascinates me, so I'd really like to read more about him as well.

With very interesting vampires and an evil, angry demon, "First Drop of Crimson" is a real page turner! It was my first Jeaniene Frost book and it won't definitely be my last.
