My First Book Review!

I got it in my head to start doing book reviews! They're not going to be long, nor will they be eloquent. My book reviews will be short, straight to the point, and honest. I try not to include spoilers. I WILL say if I did not like the book.

My Rating System:
1 - Horrible!!
2 - Don't bother with this one.
3 - I feel like I wasted my time on this one.
4 - It was okay. Not horrible, but not good either.
5 - Neutral opinion. I could take it or leave it.
6 - Liked it, but didn't love it.
7 - Good
8 - Very good!
9 - Loved it!!!
10 - LOVED IT!!! Nothing wrong with it that I could see!

Now, on to the book.....

Book Blurb:
Chicago private investigator Kira Graceling should have just kept on walking. But her sense of duty refused to let her ignore the moans of pain coming from inside a warehouse just before dawn. Suddenly she finds herself in a world she's only imagined in her worst nightmares.

At the center is Mencheres, a breathtaking Master vampire who thought he'd seen it all. Then Kira appears -- this fearless, beautiful... human who braved death to rescue him. Though he burns for her, keeping Kira in his world means risking her life. Yet sending her away is unthinkable.

But with danger closing in, Mencheres must choose either the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal desctruction.

First Sentence:
Mencheres smelled blood even before he caught the earthy scent of ghouls clustered on the ground floor of the decrepit warehouse.

This novel was fairly fast-paced and stuck to the plot at hand. That being said, I felt something lacking between Mencheres and Kira. I got the insatiable lust, the attraction, but I felt the later "I love you"'s to be very empty and meaningless. The ending was also abrupt, which was a minor annoyance. It was still an entertaining read and I would like to continue reading Frost's novels!

Liked: The characters and fact-paced storyline
Disliked: Lack of emotional love between Mencheres and Kira.
Favorite Character: Mencheres
Least Favorite Character: Radje (because he's the bad guy!)
Book Cover: 7/10
Writing: 7/10

Ending: 7/10
Overall Rating: 7
