9780062019844: A Taste of Crimson (Crimson City)

Los Angeles is no longer the City of Angels...

Dark, restless things prowl the L.A. streets. A series of unexplained murders threatens to shatter an uneasy peace among humans, vampires, and werewolves.

Keeli Maddox needs to find the answers. And now, if she and her kin are to survive, she must trust a man as different from her as night is from day. Michael is a slayer, a betrayer. . . an enemy. But Keeli, herself no stranger to shadow, knows that nobility can lurk in unexpected places— and that this remarkable being who takes her breath away is meant to be with her. . . forever. In the midst of gravest peril, their lives are about to change, as together they rediscover the unparalleled pleasure of skin on skin, and the sweet, forbidden ecstasy found in a taste of crimson.

About the Author:

Marjorie M. Liu is an attorney and New York Times bestselling author of paranormal romances and urban fantasy. In the world of comic books, she is also the writer of NYX: No Way Home, Black Widow, X-23, and Dark Wolverine. She lives in the American Midwest and Beijing, China.

From Publishers Weekly:

Set in a gritty, futuristic Los Angeles inhabited by werewolves, vampires, demons and fearful humans, this follow-up to Liz Maverick's Crimson City, the first book in Love Spell's Crimson City series, delivers a high-tension plot and protagonists so appealing that you might be tempted to invite them over for dinner-despite one being a werewolf and the other a vampire. There's no love lost between the hardscrabbling werewolves and the haughty, affluent vampires, but the two factions soon find themselves joining forces to stave off a possible human attack. All could be derailed, however, by a murderer, apparently a werewolf, who has taken to eating vampires. It's up to Michael, an outcast vampire who metes out justice among his own kind, and Keeli Maddox, the granddaughter of a powerful werewolf clan leader, to keep the peace, but their unexpected attraction may undermine everything. Liu (Tiger Eye) has a knack for making far-fetched circumstances seem feasible, and she draws characters with such precision-down to their dialect and mannerisms-that they practically step off the page. The too tidy conclusion may disappoint, but the fireworks between Keeli and Michael won't.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reissue. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Readers of early Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, and the best thrillers out there should try Liu now. -Publishers Weekly Anyone who loves my work should love [Lui s]. -Christina FeehanAward-winning, New York Times bestselling author Marjorie M. Liu s magnificent Dirk and Steele novels are the gold standard of paranormal romance fiction. Stepping briefly away from her unique detective agency of shapeshifters, psychics, and extraordinary beings, Lui enters the dangerous shadows of Crimson City with A Taste of Crimson. Set in a dark and twisted version of Los Angeles-a City of Angels from which the angels have long since fled-A Taste of Crimson has a beautiful creature of the night teaming up with an enemy, a slayer, to get to the root of an impending catastrophe that threatens to shatter a tentative peace between humans, vampires and werewolves. A breathtaking blend of sensuous romance with superior urban fantasy in the bestselling vein of Jeaniene Frost and Nalini Singh, A Taste of Crimson is a satisfying feast for every paranormal fan. Perhaps Booklist put it best: If you have yet to add Liu to your must-read list, you re doing yourself a disservice. Bookseller Inventory # BTE9780062019844
