Review – Shade of Wicked by: Jeaniene Frost

In this thrilling new Night Rebel series set in New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress world, sexy and ruthless vampire Ian finally meets his match!

The Rule Breaker…

Master vampire Ian is unrepentant, shameless…and every shade of wicked. He’s made one too many enemies in his two centuries of existence, including Dagon, a demon who now lays claim to his soul. Ian’s only chance to escape Dagon is to join forces with a Law Guardian, but he’s never been able to abide by the rules for long.

The Law Maker…

Veritas’ normal role is police, judge, and jury to reprobates like Ian. But she has her own ax to grind with Dagon, so if she can use Ian as bait…well, all’s fair in law and war. As they scour supernatural hotspots to perfect their trap, Veritas soon realizes Ian’s carefully cultivated, devil-may-care roguish image hides something much more powerful. And Ian discovers Veritas has shocking secrets of her own. As they’re drawn to each other with a passion as intense as their peril, either love or justice will prevail. But each will have devastating consequences.

Frost dives right into the action and doesn’t let up. I was absolutely engrossed in this story so quickly. Once I started, I did not want to put it down.

Shade of Wicked is, surprisingly, my first Frost book and I was not disappointed in the slightest. Now I need to go back and read all the others so I know the backstory behind all of these characters because I am absolutely invested.

Ian Ian Ian… love love love. Sexy, adventurous, strong and caring. Plus, he is so selfless. I’ll take five of him, yep. On the other side of our main duo, we had Verity. Verity I adored finding out more about her and her strong female persona.

With the fantasy side, I really liked that vampirism basically took a back seat. Yes they are vampires, but it’s not what drives the story which I really appreciated. It is a wonderfully written book and I cannot wait to dive into the rest of the series.
