Review:  If Blade had been a female, and you swapped all his cool gadgets and black leather for black silk and sex and romance, you’d have Cat, the Night Huntress.  Cat thinks all vampires are evil and is bent on eliminating them all.  How does a young gal find and slay them?  By hanging out at bars until one picks her up and then staking them when they make their move, of course.  Then her world gets turned upside down when she’s nabbed by a blood-sucker who turns out to be a good guy?  Well, good enough, anyway, and he offers her a great deal:  get trained by and work with him to kill vamps (which she likes to do anyway) or die.  The choice is pretty obvious and, unsurprisingly, a romance is born as they work together.
Ms. Frost has introduced (to me anyway) and interesting new source of vampires, dating way back to the Old Testament of the Bible.  Like most authors today, she’s also decided to break away from traditional vampire lore with regards to what can affect them.
Bottom Line:  It’s not the best vampire book I’ve read, but the fight scenes are decent and the sex scenes are stimulating.  A great fit for fans of the Paranormal Romance.  Vampire junkies who prefer horror should skip this series.
