The night is not safe for mortals. Denise MacGregor knows all too well what lurks in the shadows - her best friend is half-vampire Cat Crawfield - and she has already lost more than the average human could bear. But her family's dark past is wrapped in secrets and shrouded in darkness - and a demon shapeshifter has marked Denise as prey. Now her survival depends on an immortal who craves a taste of her.

He is Spade, a powerful, mysterious vampire who has walked the earth for centuries and is now duty-bound to protect this endangered, alluring human - even if it means destroying his own kind. Denise may arouse his deepest hungers, but Spade knows he must fight his urge to have her as they face the demon nightmare together...

Because once the first drop of crimson falls, they will both be lost.

Hello again readers! I currently have my parents visiting from out of town (Washington State) and so I've not been able to listen to my audiobooks as often as I might like, but I did manage to finish the first book in Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress World series- First Drop of Crimson. You don't know how good it was to get back into Frost's little Night Huntress "World"! Granted, this wasn't about Cat and Bones, which is okay, they made brief appearances and I got to hear Bone's quirky, crazy British accent that Tavia Gilbert NAILS! LOL! This book was about some of the other minor series in the Night Huntress; Bone's best friend Spade and Cat's best friend Denise. I have to say, I really love Spade after this book. He's kinda a douche in the other books, but this one really focused in on the why's and how's of his mind and his emotions and I thoroughly enjoyed it! Denise's story was pretty cool too! This story line coincided with, I think book 4 or 5 in the regular Night Huntress series, which they hinted at, and it was really nice to see what was going on WHILE Cat and Bones were off doing their own things, it's like a different point of view along the same timeline- which is so fun!! I have since started the second book in the Night Huntress World series but I've been really preoccupied with doing custom blogs for client's and my folks visiting from out of town as well as my kiddo's first week of school, so when things settle down a bit more, I will be updating more frequently and simply can not wait until the book after this one I'm on right now, which is Vlad's story! I thought about skipping ahead to it, but will be patient and wait! I'm just so excited for it!!! I know I will love it because I love the lore of Vlad aka Dracula (lol! he hates being called that in the books!) and love his personality and really loved the relationship between Cat and Vlad, so it will be awesome, I think! Anyway, I am cutting this short, so sorry! This was a really good start to a whole "world" series and I know I will love the rest of the books as I loved this one! :)

I think I'm going to give this book ★★★★.5 stars!
