Back of the Book reads:
Los Angeles. Once, it was the City of Angels. Now, it’s Crimson City, whose inhabitants know nothing of Heaven. The tentative peace between the species – werewolf, vampire, human – teeters on the brink of collapse. Sides are being chosen. Yet the peril is greater than any imagine. There is a power here that longs for release, an ancient darkness held captive too long. Below, beneath, beyond, it seethes. And there are those who would see it freed.
Mika herself seeks freedom. She’s come to Crimson City looking for the key. But that key’s keeper is a killer, an outsider, a mercenary with a poisoned past. To her kind, he has meant only death. No matter that Conor McCabe’s pale green eyes hold a hint of lust, the glind of a bond never to be broken; the path ahead lies in shadow. In a city like this, death can come by fire or fang, by claw or kiss. And the moment of truth must come…

Review: Pretty good for what it was.
Could have been a little better though, I think. Comparing this one to the first two, it fell a little flat somehow. The author didn’t combine enough background info – it almost feels like something’s missing. You don’t really get the why of it all.
There’s no misunderstanding as to why Conor is the way he is. It’s crystal clear. I liked his character; strong, it takes quite a bit to succumb to his desires. I truly hope to see more of him.
Mika… sure, demons are made out to be just as sensual creatures as vamps are, and they are very open about it, but on her, it almost seemed immature somehow. That’s how it came across and I’m still not sure why.
The fight scenes are pretty good, the descriptions make you feel like you’re there – you see a clear picture of everything in your head while reading.
I say, read it – I think you’ll like it.
