For the love of her vampire suitor, Karl, Charlotte has forsaken her human life. Now her only contact with people is when she hunts them down to feed. Her thirst for blood repulses her but its fulfilment brings ecstasy.
The one light in the shadows is the passion that burns between her and Karl. A love that it seems will last for eternity - until Karl's former lover, the seductively beautiful Katerina, is rescued from the Crystal Ring. For nearly fifty years she has lain, as dead, in the icy depths of the Weisskalt. Now she wants to reclaim her life ... and Karl. In despair, Charlotte turns to the prima ballerina Violette Lenoir, an ice maiden who only thaws when she dances. Charlotte is fascinated as she has been by no other human, longing to bring joy to the dancer. But her obsession opens the flood-gates to a far darker threat than the vampires could ever have imagined. For Violette is more than human and if she succumbs to the vampire's kiss it could unleash a new terror ...

In A Dance in Blood Velvet, Warrington continues the story of vampire lovers Charlotte and Karl, adding some great twists and turns to deepen her vampires’ world and keep readers curious about her mythology. Karl and Charlotte’s world is turned upside down at the appearance of a vampire thought to be long gone—Karl’s former lover, Katti. Charlotte, already in doubt of her place in Karl’s life, drifts as Karl immerses himself in healing Katti and finding out how she escaped her fate. But Katti isn’t the only vampire to return. Humans have been playing with forces beyond them. Benedict and Lancelyn Grey have found a way to connect with the Crystal Ring, the vampires’ realm. Benedict unleashes a flood of long-sleeping vampires as his brother Lancelyn dabbles in making himself a god with the help of dark forces. Wanting to stay well-away from Katti, Charlotte becomes obsessed with prima ballerina Violette Lenoir. Violette leads her down a dangerous path, one that awakens the mother of vampires, Lilith. I’m completely hooked on the world Warrington has created! Her vampires’ mythology is unique and the twists she’s added in this book deepen that for me. I’m really looking forward to reading the rest of this series.
This book truly had me reading line after line. I didn't want it to end. I will not spoil, I loved this book.
