FIRST DROP OF CRIMSON
In the first spin-off from
her wildly popular Night Huntress series, Frost turns the spotlight on Cat's best friend Denise and devilishly handsome vampire Spade. Since these characters have been important secondary players, moving them to the forefront is a welcome development. Book by book, Frost builds her reputation as an author who delivers only the best.
With Cat and Bones out of touch, Denise contacts the one person whose number she also has: Spade. He discovers that Denise has been attacked and marked with demon essence by Raum. Unless Spade and Denise can track down a man named Nathaniel, who escaped from Raum, the rest of Denise's family will die. As they begin their worldwide hunt, Denise and Spade realize the spark of attraction between them is turning into a raging forest fire! (AVON, Feb., 384 pp., $7.99)
