Overview

The tension between the Aeternus, an ancient vampiric people, and humanity has been mounting for over a century. But when rogue vampires begin to drain humans in order to achieve an illegal blood-high, all bets are off.

After the death of her parents, Antoinette Petrescu devoted her life to becoming one of the top Venators, the elite hunters who destroy the rogue Necrodreniacs. Her kill count is legendary and her skills superb.

But now the serial killer who killed her parents has returned. And to stop him Antoinette must join forces not only with the Aeternus, but also their most legendary killer. One that is both dangerously attractive, and involved in buried secrets of her past. More dangerous still, a dark attraction grows between them--one that could doom both races.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Watching her mother being savagely murdered left Antoinette Petrescu inflamed with hatred for the vampire race, but she now realizes that to exact her revenge, she needs the help of one of their kind. Little does she know that the bloodthirsty Christian Laroque cloaks his own secret agenda. Guaranteed to raise the pulse of readers who crave dark vampire fiction with strong romance plotlines.
Nalini Singh
“Intense, sexy, bold, NIGHT’S COLD KISS is a superb debut. Tracey O’Hara writes in a voice full of passion and power - I’m already waiting impatiently for the next book from this talented author.”

    Entertaining in a dark way

    Night's Cold Kiss is a slightly different perspective on the paranormal genre with shapeshifters and vampires and other magical beings.

    Antoinette had a dark past starting when she was only a child. Her father thought dead after Antoinette saw her mother murdered she and her brother Nici were sent to live with their uncle. Now 16 years later she finds out that her father never really dies all those years ago and the vampire who killed her mother who she thought was dead is very alive and hunting for her.
    Christian works as an agent for the parahuman police, 16 years after he helped save a young child and her brother he seems to be dragged back into the situation. There's and evil plan that involves Antoinette and the only way to find out who is responsible is to have Antoinette play bait.

    A worthwhile read, the characters are entertaining and well written along with the plot that keeps you turning the page as fast as you can.

    Great book!

    I started reading this book yesterday and didn't stop until I was done. It doesn't really pick up until about the 6th chapter, but then it is great! I am really looking forward to the next in the series.

    Those who like books by Jeanine Frost (Night Huntress Series), Charlaine Harris (Sookie Series), and Kresley Cole (Immortal After Dark series) will enjoy this book! Pick it up, you wont regret it :)

    Interesting

    I liked the way that the writer takes you through the history of the characters but isn't long winded about trivial items.
    It was a good page turner with a nice supernatural feel.

    I AM ICE chapter 1 part 1

    Icekit opened her eyes warily. The sun always hurt them, exept this time, she saw only blackness. Fur. Black fur. "Darkkit!!" She yelped, through his fur. "Hmm?" He mumbled "Move!" She pushed him away with her forepaws. "Oh, stop bickering!" Lilyfurs voice cut in. Leafkit and Redkit lay in the curve of her belly. Darkkit shifted away from icekit. With a huff she rose to her feet. Hawkkit murmered in his sleep behind her. She giggled and nudged him awake.

    A NIGHT'S COLD KISS-A BRETHERN NOVEL

    I HAVE JUST COMPLETED A NIGHT'S COLD KISS BY TRACEY OHARA.IT WAS INTERESTING TO READ ABOUT THE VENATORS, DRENIACS, AETURNUS,ANIMALIANS, AND THE PARANORMAL POLICE FORCES, AND POLITICAL COMMUNITIES ADDED TO HUNTING DOWN OF VAMPIRE SERIAL KILLER. GENERALLY, I LIKED VAMPIRE ROMANCE NOVELS- WITH MANY COMPLICATIONS- ADDED WITH LOTS OF THRILLS AND TURNS, AND THIS BOOK HAS ALOT OF THOSE. I WANT TO SEE WHAT DIRECTION SHE GOES OR HOW SHE CREATES HER OWN SERIES.I HOPE TRACEY O'HARA WRITES A FOLLOW UP TO HER NEW SERIES, AND I WILL BE LOOKING FOR IT IN THE B&N BOOKSTORES.

    The first Dark Brethren tale is a terrific foreboding urban fantasy

    The Hundreds Years War between the humans and Aeternus vampires finally ended when courageous leaders from both sides reached a desperately needed peace accord. However, Necrodreniacs rebels reject the pact as they thrive on human blood; their thirst is insatiable.

    Fifteen years ago, when she was six years old, Antoinette Petrescu observed in fear and horror as vampire Dante Ribins slowly killed her mother. Although another vampire Christian Laroque saved the child's life, she loathes all undead. Her racial prejudice has driven Antoinette who as a teen worked obsessively hard so she could become part of the elitist Venator corps stalking down paranormal criminals.

    The CHAPR council between the humans and para-humans that has maintained the peace is beginning to fall apart due to distrust fostered by the actions of rogues on both sides especially the vamps. To save the council, Antoinette and Christian agree to taem up though she loathes doing so. However, as she begins to believe Dante is behind the prime assaults on the council, no one accepts her theory that the notorious serial has returned from the dead. She also ponders whether Christian, hiding behind his mask of concern, is the impetus behind the dreniacs's bloody surge.

    The first Dark Brethren tale is a terrific foreboding urban fantasy that uses sentient species' needs to be numero uno as a form of prejudice to anchor an ominous looking world where danger is everywhere. The story line is fast-paced, but the introduction to who's who slows down the reader (thankfully Tracey O'Hara provides a scorecard). Fans will enjoy the hostilities to be top dog on earth yet Antoinette makes this thriller work as she witnessed the tragedy of her mother's s death; the adult is the child. This is a great start to a world in which NIGHT'S COLD KISS is the warmest time on planet earth.
