It will take a special heroine to match up with enigmatic master vampire Mencheres; and thankfully the über-talented Frost has just the woman in mind. In this second spin-off from the bestselling Night Huntress series, Frost produces a tale that is wildly romantic as well as action packed. If Frost keeps this up, fans will need to build more keeper shelves!

After losing his ability to see the future, ancient Egyptian vampire Mencheres assumes his long life will soon end, so he has made Bones the co-ruler of his line. Mencheres’ nemesis Radjedef is closing in and a final showdown looms. But all of Mencheres’ plans are blown out of the water when he is “rescued” from a pack of ghouls by Chicago P.I. Kira Graceling.

Although she knows she is outmatched, Kira cannot abandon the man being tortured by the gang. Kira’s act of bravery and kindness thrusts her into a dark and dangerous world she never dreamed existed. For the first time in centuries Mencheres is fascinated by a woman. That mutual fascination could be a death sentence, for Mencheres’ enemy is on the move. (AVON, Aug., 361 pp., $7.99)

Jeaniene Frost has started a series on the vampire characters from the Nigh Huntress books and First Drop of Crimson is her second book about master vampire Mencheres.

Mencheres was not the master vampire I thought him to be. I did not realize he was so young, and an Egyptian King, Tut himself. I enjoyed getting insight into his character and his background. Menchere has lived a long time, is tiring and ready to die when an unsuspecting human woman comes into his life. A great story and another affirmation of an age old adage that life is worth living with love.
