Night's cold kiss

For centuries war raged between humans and Aeturnus vampires - until courageous efforts on both sides forged a fragile peace.
But the rogue Necrodrainiacs will never be controlled - addicted as they are to the death-high....and bloody chaos.

Since witnessing the murder of her mother, Antoinette Petrescu has burned with fiery hatred for the vampire race - even for Christian Laroque, the noble, dangerously handsome Aeternus who rescued her. Now an elite Venator, Antoinette must reluctanly accept Christian's help to achieve her vengeance - even as he plots to use the beautiful, unsuspecting warrior as bait to draw out the bloodthisty dreniacs. (Bookcover)

This is the first novel in the Dark Brethren serie.

So in this world there are two sorts of vampires Aeternus vampires and Necrodrainiacs or dreniacs, the good and the bad vampires. An Aeternus becomes a dreniac if he or she drains a human while feeding.

The story is about Antoinette Petrescu, a Venator, a bounty hunter specialized in dreniacs. The story starts off with one of her 'jobs'. So you get right into the action. She has to go unto a mission with two Aeturnus vampires Christian and Viktor. They have to find a dreniac who is killing woman who look like Antoinette.....
This story starts off with action and not much later it gets al hot and steamy. So no long waiting you just dive right in. Because it's throughout the book that didn't bother me.
Antoinette is a loner she works with her brother and lives for her work. She is tough but isn't reckless as most of the heroines you read about. No she is well trained and thinks before she acts.
Christian is the handsome vampire. Who also is the one who 'saved' Antoinette and her brother after her mother was killed by dreniac (she just doesn't know that)
The relationship between Antoinette and Christian is 'difficult' they both have feelings and both have different reasons to try and fight them. The sexual tension is great between them and you keep wondering when they will give in to their feelings.
Viktor is Christians best friend and funny as hell. The relationship between Antoinette and Viktor is great. She might hate vampires but she enjoys his company and they become friends. She has always been a loner and you get to see another side of her.

This is an action packed, fast paced, hot sexy, dark, well written story.

Tracey O'Hara shows a whole new paranormal world. And the last few pages of the book she put a glossery of terms to explame it all. And that is quite handy because she doen't have to explain to big in the story itself. So not an overload of information just a great story.

My rating: 5/5
