Dark is The Night opens with our old world vampire, Alexander, telling us how he perceives we humans. We are his prey and he is on the top of the food chain. His view of the hunt for prey is cold and calculating; as he has no wish to create fledglings as he feeds, he must after drinking his prey dry, remove their heads from their torso and dispose of such. With our ever changing modern world of communication and media growth, he has created himself as a serial killer like Jack the Ripper. He is the Antoinette Killer, the police are looking for.
We readers follow Alexander, from club to club, watching him follow his next meal. She is a pretty blonde who is being plied with drinks by her date, and our vampire is rewarded with them leaving the club and with the benefit of alcohol walking down a dark alley to another club. Alexander has decided this is the time to strike. This scene is both horrifying and sensual as Alexander sates both his appetites with this young girl, through sex and blood. He leaves the dead man at the scene for the police to find as an accident victim, and takes the girl with him to dispose of her body in his own way. He doesn't realize he has left a clue, blood stains from the girl at the scene.
Katherine Wells, Cleveland Police Homicide Detective, is called to the scene. Katherine, Kat for short, is a pretty, sharp and undeniably strong young woman who works a job in a male oriented society. She keeps pretty much to herself, doesn't date the office staff that usually ogle her, and has a reputation on the force as ice princess. She lives in an apartment building much inhabited by gays and feels safe there in a cocoon of safety. She is called to the murder scene with her partner Greg, where the crime is labeled murder, not accident as Alexander had planned.
This is where their paths will now cross...The Hunter and the Hunted!!! Alexander knows there is someone now looking for the killer. His sheer scorn of the humans makes him think he is above their hunt. Katherine now meets Alexander and he melts her to her core. She has never met anyone quite like him. He becomes enchanted by this human as a possibility for a life mate to end his lonely existence. This is where Brindle Chase unleashes his brilliance, as the excellent erotic and sensual writer he is. He takes these two people on a path of no return. My question was answered when reading this story "what would a woman, or man for that matter, give up or do for the one they truly love?"....This book is so worth reading.
Review By Gloria Lakritz
Review Chairperson and Senior Reviewer for The Paranormal Romance Guild
The Characters were odd. He seems at the beginning to be the bad, "evil to the bone" Vampire, what is nice, I love my Vampires evil. But then he gets all sissy about his Katherine. And she is police officer, smart and all rational but then comes a stranger says he is Vampire and all she does is get on her back open her legs for him and says "turn me".
I was flipping pages (a lot) just to get to the end, something I do not often with books. 2 and a half star I would give if possible but so I give 3.
