When vampires begin dying in the Manhattan vampire community, the investigation must be swift and justice even swifter, without any humans finding out. (Well, except for a few trusted humans.) A drug equivalent of Ecstasy for vampires has hit the area. It had been outlawed for over a millennia by the vampire elders because the drug's effects are deadly and uncontrollable.
Sun Tze Lee is an Asian vampire, one of the Kiang-shi. They are unlike the typical vampires that have a pulse. They Kiang-shi have no breath, no pulse, no living flesh. They keep themselves oiled so their flesh does not rot off. All Kiang-shi were evil when they lived. After dying, before they are buried, they are reanimated by evil. They care for no one, vampire or human. Sun Tze has plans for those at Otro Mundo and then the world. None of it is good.
***** Let me start this with a warning ... This story has violent sections, including physical violations (male and female). No one under the age of eighteen should read this Dark Fantasy. Having said that, if you do not mind the darker fantasies, then this story rocks! It is obvious from the start who is supplying the drugs, but the author does not really try to keep that a secret. Of course the tension is thick between the main characters at first, but watching Blake strive to prove himself worthy is humorous, as well as romantic. This author has created a vampire world that is more believable than most of the others on the market. An absolutely fantastic read! *****

A loner for a century and a half, Blake loves Meghan but knows he can survive without her for another 150 years. Still he hopes to earn her respect and regard as he has vowed to be more considerate towards lesser species ever since he over indulged with her. His goal is to win her love. However, though attracted to him, she doubts her sire is a one blood woman man even as a serial vampire killer stalks the underground undead of New York.
This excellent vampire romantic suspense stars two vamps in love, but from the first their relationship seems stuck in negativity in spite of the BLOOD CALLS to them. Blake and Meghan are fabulous protagonists who must learn trust if their love is to have meaning and if they are to survive the serial slayer stalker. As always with the "Calling" saga, Caridad Pineiro provides a strong erotic romance filled with plenty of action on the streets of Manhattan and deep characters.
That accident happened to Meghan Thomas, a small town girl who came to New York City to start a new life; however, she didn't expect that new life would include crossing paths with Blake Richards, a Welsh vampire who was turned in the mid-1800s, and being turned by him when he fed on her a little too exuberantly. Now she has had to reluctantly readjust to being a vampire, a situation she hasn't embraced. But while she may be angry with Blake, she cannot deny that she cares for him and cares enough to join him and several other recurring members of the Blood Bank's clientele in the hunt for a dangerous and mysterious Chinese vampire who seems to have a hand in a series of strange drug-related deaths plaguing the vampire realm...
This has to be one of the best-written of Caridad Pinero's "The Calling": not only is the heroine's discomfort with her new self believable and even heart-breaking. Ms. Pinero has also looked beyond the usual European vampire model to introduce the kiang-shi of China and she hasn't shirked from making Sun-Tze Lee as unpleasant as these Asian vampires are in the original legends. Some may argue this is an Asian stereotype, but considering that the kiang-shi of legend are little more than blood-drinking corpses reanimated by demons, I'd say that Ms. Pinero created an especially creepy and dangerous antagonist. I'm wondering just what she'll bring to her world in her next offering, but I trust it will be something worth waiting for.
