A nice, solid start to the series. The exposition occasionally felt forced, and the plot has been done before. But, really, it's difficult to find a unique twist on the vampire-mortal thing at this point. The series as a whole varies in quality, with this one landing solidly in the middle. If you like the supernatural genre and are interested in this series, give it a try before you read one of the later, more "different" books.

This is the beginning of a vamp series written by different authors. The first installment was an OK read, but the vamp girl seemed to wimpy to me. But it did hold my attention enough that I wanted to see what happens in the next book.

This is a fun book set in a futuristic Los Angeles where a vampire/ human/werewolf caste system has evolved. Vampires are the wealthy, the humans are the middle class, and the werewolves are the lower classes. The main story involves a young vampire girl who is coming into her place in the clan and her fascination with a certain human male. I look forward to the next book in this series.

This book is an okay paranormal. It starts out a multi-author series that covers 5 different species. This is about vampire Fleur Dumont and her human friend. It's a good place to start paranormals.

A good, moderately fast read. I was previously unfamiliar with this author, but I would read more by her now.

Besides being a good stand-alone story, this book is an intro. to the world of Crimson City, created by Liz Maverick. Several other authors were then invited to create stories set in this world. I suggest you start here and read them all, though each one will stand on it's own. There is even an anthology of short stories. If you like this one search Romance for "Crimson" to find more.

After devouring the Laurell K. Hamilton series I was really missing my Anita Blake fix... but this series stepped right up to the plate! Crimson City explores a vampire culture in a new, but still familiar way. I'm already on book 5 of this series... and can't put the books down!
