Overview

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 either the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal destruction.

    Jeaniene Frost continues to be one of the sub-genre's top Master mages.

    Ancient Egyptian Master Vampire Mencheres believes his life is coming to an end. Ti protects those he cherishes from an in family civil war to replace him by designating Bones as his co-ruler; especially since he expects a life and death showdown with his enemy Radjedef.

    In Chicago, Ghouls seemingly have trapped Mencheres, but mortal private investigator Kira Graceling saves his life; at least she thinks so when she courageously dives into the fight. Stunned by the mortal's bravery, Mencheres finds himself dazzled by Kira who is attracted to him though fearful of the strange world she discovered when she jumped into his fight. However, as he now has a reason to live, he fears her distraction and attraction will kill both of them.

    The second sidebar spin-off from the superb Night Huntress saga (see First Drop of Crimson) is a great urban fantasy as the Master vampire falls in love at an extremely bad time. Filled with action, as Mencheres tries to keep his beloved from becoming a pawn in the death match with his adversary a great risk to his existence, Jeaniene Frost continues to be one of the sub-genre's top Master mages.

    Bliss, pure bliss...

    Ms. Frost has done it again. Mencheres and Kira are as endearing as Cat and Bones. You will love this story. You will route for Kira who is so brave and headstrong (just like Cat). Mencheres is taken by her bravery and honesty and by her love for him. Bliss, this was pure bliss for me. Keep 'em coming, Ms. Frost!

    Loved it

    Another great book to te Halfway to the Grave series. I love JF books. The only thing I would like to see is the endings being a little less cut and dry. The whole book just builds and the ending is like ok we win, Love ya bye.

    Good, but...

    I really like J. Frost, the Night Huntress Series, and loved First Drop of Crimson. However, I didn't like this book as much. I probably didn't like it as much because I didn't really have a connection with the main characters. In First Drop of Crimson, I already knew the two main characters. In this book, I only knew of the main lead character, and even then there wasn't much I knew about him from the other books. Overally though, I thought it was a good book.

    Too simplistic for my taste...

    Brought to you by OBS reviewer Heidi

    The second story in Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress World series takes us to a story about Mencheres, one that tells all about the joys of second chances and feelings of redemption.

    Mencheres has lived a long life, but hasn’t felt the same vigor for living that he once had, ever since he helped deliver death to his estranged and evil wife, Patra. He no longer has visions and sees nothing, but darkness when he tries, which leads him to believe that his end is near. And, with his jealous enemy, Radjedef, after Mencheres’s power, he knows it’s only a matter of time before it’s taken from him and he’s killed. So, Mencheres decides to end his own life so that Bones and his people do not suffer from punishments handed down from Radjedef and the rest of the Law Guardians.

    Mencheres decides to investigate a young vampire’s death and feels it’s as good of a time as any to die, once he is surrounded by the ghouls responsible. He just never expected a young human to intervene, putting her own life in danger. He is forced to save them both and takes her home with him.

    Mencheres can’t read Kira’s thoughts and is unable to remove the memories of him and the ghouls from her mind. He keeps her at his house hoping that in time, he will be able to. Once, he determines that will never happen and that she needs to get back to her sick sister, he decides to trust her and let her go.

    Neither expects the loss they feel at not having the other around anymore. So, when Kira’s mission to find Mencheres leaves her in a life or death situation, it’s up to Mencheres to come to her rescue. But now his greatest enemy has new ammunition to use against him to get everything he wants.

    I really wanted to like this story, but I found the first half of the book to be incredibly boring, and I struggled to keep reading it. Once Kira starts looking for Mencheres it does get better, but it’s not Frost’s best work by a long shot.

    It was nice getting a more thorough look at Mencheres and getting to understand his character better. Seeing him near death and brought back by love is a touching concept, especially with Kira being the first person who has ever truly loved him. I’m glad to see he’s finally found that and can be happy, I just wish getting to that point hadn’t been so dull.

    Also, it was interesting to see the Mayan ruins, Chichen Itza, being the place where Kira was taken to after being kidnapped since I’ve actually been there and I could kind of imagine the scene.

    It was pretty obvious once Mencheres met with Aken, who was going back in that boat though. There was no way that it would have been Mencheres or some innocent. But it was nice to see that Kira wasn’t willing to play the damsel in distress and aided in her own escape.

    This storyline was pretty simple, a little too simple perhaps. This one is much darker than the other Jeaniene Frost books up to this point. There is no humor as this book is filled with Mencheres’s internal struggles and painful past. But the hot sex was definitely ramped up in this one, with the help of Mencheres’s power to act as an extra set of hands:)

    “Kira knew that his tongue felt like a vibrator set to the speed of Oh Hell Yeah”

    I would recommend reading this story to anybody that is reading the Night Huntress series so that they understand what has happened and don’t lose any important details, but I just wouldn’t go into it expecting very much.

    Awesome!

    I cannot express how much I have enjoyed these books! This one is a stand alone and will not give anything away like Spade's book did, but you should still read this before book #5 of the Cat and Bones series. I sincerely hope that Vlad gets his own story! I love his wit, and he could certainly support his own story......maybe Vlad and Justina.....would that be too weird?

    Great Paranormal Book!

    I loved this book...could not put it down. I liked getting to know some of the other characters from the "Grave" series with a little dash of Cat & Bones. Liked this one just as much as First Drop...hoping for a sequel!

    Not Frost's usual great writing, a bit bland and predictable

    I love Frost's story of Cat and Bones. She brought a fresh twist on what has become bland and predictable vampire love stories. Her ability to bring to believable life mythical beings and melding violence and darkness with perfect touches of humor is superb. I was really looking forward to this charactor breakout story. Sadly it was not even close to the caliber of writing I know Frost is capable of producing. This book is the same bland fare put out by less talented writers. The only saving grace is providing extra material on an existing major secondary charactor from Cat and Bone's story. If I had known in advance Frost was not going to put her true writing ability into this book I would not have bought it.

    Excellent love story. This book was a page turner and superior to First Drop of Crimson, which I also liked a lot.
