Customer Review

on 23 February 2006
Imagine Sin City spliced with Underworld and you have "Crimson City". Labelled so following the race wars between humans, werewolves and vampires, the 3 species now co-exist in uneasy harmony, a peace broken by the unexpected slaughter of 2 high ranking vampires.

Escaping the execution, Warrior vampire Fleur Dumont, now rightful head of her family following her brothers' deaths, feels humans are responsible after witnessing the assassin, a "mech", a mechanically enhanced human being. Joining forces with Dain Reston, a member of Crimson City's Battlefield Operations team, and a bitter man following his wife's death at the hands of a vampire, the pair find themselves attempting to untangle a mystery involving all 3 races in Crimson City. As more deaths occur, unrest is high in the city and in danger of escalating out of control.

There's loads of action and mystery in this book, as well as some fascinating characters who I hope crop up in future publications. For fans of dark fantasy we have supernatural races and hints of demonic experimentation, and for lovers of romance there is plenty of passion between Fleur and Dain. Despite their deepening feelings, both hide scarred pasts; Fleur breaking strict vampire code by converting a human lover, resulting in her losing her seat as rightful ruler of her family, and Dain, haunted by a wife he cannot remember and a new love he can never have.

I now eagerly look forward to reading, "A Taste of Crimson" by the marvellous Marjorie M Liu. There also appears to be another 2 further books within the "Crimson City" series, "Through a Crimson Veil" by Patti O' Shea and "A Darker Crimson" by Carolyn Jewel - I'll certainly be ordering all these books.
