4.0 out of 5 stars Much Better than the First Book in the Series, October 31, 2010

This review is from: Eternal Kiss of Darkness (Mass Market Paperback)
Eternal Kiss of Darkness is a stand-alone book about a millenias-old vampire, Mencheres. Mencheres is first met in the Kat and Bones series and is introduced as Bones' grandsire. Consequently, Kat and Bones figure into this book, too.

Mencheres is longing for death. His visions have gone dark and he sees nothing but blackness. He believes this signals his demise and he decides that he will choose how he leaves this life before it is chosen for him. He courts the attention of a gang of young ghouls and lures them into an empty warehouse, in a way committing suicide in the fashion of a famous predecessor. His plan is foiled by Kira Graceling, a young private investigator, who hears the sounds of torture coming from the warehouse as she passes by. She grabs onto her courage and enters the warehouse to save the victim, not realizing that there are supernatural creatures in the world. Needless to say, the ghouls are really "happy" to see her, too. Kira's appearance sets in place a series of events that unravels Mencheres' death plans.

Kira brings something into Mencheres' life that causes him to welcome death less. But, death is stalking him in several forms and he is convinced his lack of visions signal the end of his life. His uncle wants him dead so that the uncle can inherit the powers that were gifted to Mencheres rather than to the uncle. The uncle sits on a powerful board of vampires known as the Law Guardians, a group that, under the uncle's influence, hunts Mencheres to kill him for using blood magic which is forbidden to vampires. The Law Guardians use the services of Enforcers, very powerful and old vampires, as a vampire police force who are set on Mencheres to capture him.

Kira is a snappy, sassy, spunky heroine with a smart mouth and a heart of gold. She quickly falls under the spell that is Mencheres, but has no idea how he feels about her. As she loses her fear of Mencheres, her eyes are opened to frightening paranormal things.

This book is much better than the first book in the Night Huntress World series. It has tension; it is well written, well plotted; and the characters are fleshed out. It is an imaginative and very rewarding read.
