Eternal Kiss of Darkness, by Jeaniene Frost

3 Oct

Format: Mass Market Paperback, 361 pages
Published: July 27, 2010
Publisher: Avon Books
Back cover blurb:
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.

My review:
This was sitting by my bed for about a year and I was reluctant to start it for two reasons: I wasn’t sure I was all that interested in Mencheres, and the cover is so awful I felt embarrassed to pick it up. However, I can now admit my doubts were unwarranted. Mencheres is lovely, and once started, I couldn’t put his story down.

Kira was a great heroine – I don’t usually like the heroines in PNRs – and it was fabulous to see how strong she was all the way through, with no contrived angsty subplots. Finding out about Mencheres makes me want to reread Cat and Bones so I can fill in the blanks about him. This also has the bonus of Vlad, and I’ll be moving on to his story soon. I loved it, but I’m still taking a cupcake off for the cringeworthy cover – ugh.

My rating: 4/5

18 & Over Book Blogger Follow #16: Review-Go-Round

3 Aug

18 & Over Book Blogger Follow is a weekly feature that runs over the weekend, hosted by Crystal from one of my favourite blog sites, Reading Between the Wines.

Question of the Week Please share three books that are in your review pile (and unread) right now.

I apologise for not having participated in this meme for a while, but here I am back again, admitting my TBR pile is HUGE! I have a huge list of unread books on my Kindle, and a pile of a dozen or more books gathering dust beside my bed.

Top of the gathering-dust pile at the moment is No Rest for the Wicked by Kresley Cole, which I’ve had since last year sometime.  I plan to read it this month for a Good Reads challenge – but I’ve said that before, lol!

I also plan to read Eternal Kiss of Darkness by Jeaniene Frost this month for the same challenge, and I’ve had that for about as long as the Kresley Cole. I bought it last year on sale and just can’t seem to get up enough enthusiasm to read Mencheres’ story :/

Finally, and probably the most embarrassing of all, I have been daunted by the size of A Breath of Snow and Ashesby Diana Gabaldon, which has been in that pile since the book came out in 2006! It’s just too big! I’ve had the next book in the series on my Kindle for a year or more, too, so I really must get onto it. Bad me.

Don’t even get me started on the other books in that pile – mostly presents which hold little appeal. But I will get to them one day!

What about you? What’s been on your bedside table for a while? Leave a comment below or link up HERE to follow the meme.
