Review and Giveaway: Eternal Kiss Of Darkness by Jeaniene Frost


Title:  Eternal Kiss Of Darkness
Author:  Jeaniene Frost
Series:  Night Huntress World, Book #2
Released:  July 27, 2010
Genre:  Paranormal Romance
How I Got It:  Purchased paperback (sorry Book Ban)

Book 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. 
But with danger closing in, Mencheres must choose between the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal destruction. 
My Thoughts
Eternal Kiss Of Darkness is the second book in The Night Huntress World Series, which is a spinoff of The Night Huntress Series (featuring Bones and Cat).  While I wasn't madly in love with the first book of the series, I couldn't not pick this one up.

Jeanine Frost is just one of those authors that creates such amazing book boyfriends, that you just can't stop reading her books.  So anything remotely related to Bones, I will gladly loose sleep until the last page has turned.

And if you are not familiar with Bones, I must insist that you stop what you are doing and run out and pick up The Night Huntress series ASAP.

Anyhoo, I loved  this story.  It had romance and action.  But, most importantly it had the infamous master vampire, Mencheres.  I especially loved him.  He was patient with his lady love and deadly as hell to his enemies.  He has officially earned his spot on my book boyfriend list.  With him being Bones's Grandsire and everything, how could I not.  I loved it everytime Bones called him "Grandsire".  Such a sexy great, great, great, and then some grandpa.

Kira I was not crazy about, because she started out with kickass heroine potential, but the feeling fizzled.  She had a few moments where I thought she was going to make a comeback, but that fizzled too.  Given the background that she had, she held her own so I do see potential.  Hopefully  her character will develop a lot as she adjusts to her new environment.

I was disappointed with the ceiling sex.  I was really looking forward to this book coming out because I had hear so much about it.  I almost tore the book apart trying to get to that scene.  It was okay, but for Mencheres to be a 4500 year old vamp, I felt like his sex should have blown the infamous Chapter 32 clean out of my mind.  Kira should have been bowlegged, bruised and  then some. Or at least passed out for a couple of days.  I'm just saying.

My Rating
I give it four flowers of love.  It was no Bones and Cat, but very entertaining.  It will hold me until I get my next fix of B and C, which is suppose to be released February 2011.

Cat and Bones are one of my favorite book couples; and I never liked Mencheres in their books. Who could love him when we watched him primarily through Cat's eyes in the past? BUT I loved him after I read his book. I am hooked on Jeaniene's world.

Congrats on the anniv! Way to go!!

Cat and Bones are my all time favorite paranormal couple. Hence the fascination with the supporting characters of their world. While I agree with your review in that the first of the Night Huntress World was definitely NOT the same as a C&B story, I liked it. Am totally looking forward to Mencheres' story - kind of feel sorry and think he needs a little HEA action too...
