Avon Affair

THE AVON AFFAIR IS A 14-DAY AVON BOOKS REVIEW EVENT
ORGANIZED AND HOSTED BY CURRENT AND ALUMNI MEMBERS OF
THE AVON ADDICTS.

True love is put to the test in the third book in Kristin Miller’s Vampires of Crimson Bay series.

Tortured by demonic voices, Dante’s soul is as black as they come. But when he meets Ariana—an innocent vampire fighting demons of her own—he second-guesses everything he’s ever known about sacrifice, passion, and soul-scorching love.

Before Dante wages war against Crimson Bay’s greatest threat, he must make a choice: love Ariana the way she deserves, risking her life in the process—or fight to protect her, unleashing the monster he’s determined to bury.

This is the kind of book that you really wish you had read the first two in the series before reviewing-but I will do my best.
Dante is not sure what he is in the supernatural world. He hears demonic voices in his head and if he doesn’t feed the voices with either sex or violence, the voices will take over. He meets Ariana at the Black Market, a club for supernaturals. I am still not sure exactly what goes on in this club except that Dante frees Ariana from bondage there and transports her magically out. They end up close to Black Moon-her haven. She is what is known as an Elder in the vampire world. Elders live in a Haven where they spend their time honing their special abilities. The two fall in love but Dante is afraid to touch her because if he has sex with her, it will take part of her soul to feed him. Meanwhile an enemy named Savage is wiping out huge portions of the vampires and elders at havens in California. Black Moon,where Ariana resides is the last haven standing.

There is so much going on in this book, way more then I have mentioned. The story explores Dante’s quest to find out what he is, and his need to find a way to be with Ariana without hurting her. The war with Savage is also a big part of the story.  The supernatural world created by the author has many interesting facets and she has even created a new group called Watchers. Her characters are interesting and the two main ones are pretty well fleshed out.

A few of the lesser characters, that I am sure were main characters in the previous books, were not as interesting to me, probably because I had not read the other two books.There’s not a lot of rehashing of the previous stories, just enough to kind of know what went on. This is good if you have read the other books-not so good if you are new to them like me.  Definitely not the authors fault.  If you want to read these, I highly recommend you read the other two first.

I give this 3 stars as I was able to enjoy most of the story.
