Loved it from the first page!! Action, Angels, Sentinels, Vampires, Lycans, Demons, Love and Sex all rolled into one! what more could a girl want?
I read A Dark Kiss of Rapture the short novella in this series first which being short I devoured in one sitting (although a full on non stop 4 hour sitting) but it left me hungry to learn so much more about this world the author, Sylvia Day had created - so I dived straight into A Touch of Crimson, being a longer book it took a few more sittings but was still finished in a few days as I just could not put it down - the characters are fabulous the story line is fantastic and the detail and set up is amazing. Hats off to Sylvia Day for creating such a fabulous and engrossing world and story line that is intricately put together.
I have gone on to read the next instalment being A Hunger So Wild (which is possibly my fave of the two because Elijah makes your toes curl). I love the fact that the author goes from one set of characters to another seamlessly picking up loose ends and taking you through so you can see events from both sides of the story - its fab - am waiting for the next book A Taste of Seduction which, due to the Crossfire series, has been delayed from its original release date of February 2013!!, I read these books in September 2012! can I wait much longer?? I don't think I can!!!
All in all the whole series is a must read, I also thoroughly enjoyed the Crossfire series - I don't know how she does it but so far every book of Sylvia's that I have ready has been superb!
A Touch of Crimson, Book Description:
Adrian Mitchell is a powerful angel leading an elite Special Ops unit of Seraphim. His task is to punish the Fallen-angels who have become vampires-and command a restless pack of indentured lycans. But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals- losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly two hundred years, he has found her-Shadoe-her soul once more inhabiting a new body, with no memory of him. And this time, he won't let her go.
A Hunger So Wild - Book Description:
Elijah Reynolds is the most dominant of lycans, a rare Alpha whose skill on the hunt is surpassed only by his primal sexuality. When the lycans revolt due to the iron fist of angelic rule, he steps into command, becoming both enemy and coveted ally in the conflict between vampires and angels.
Vashti is the second most powerful vampire in the world, a lethal beauty with a path of devastation in her wake. Tasked with proposing an alliance between vampires and the lycans who killed her mate, Vash approaches Elijah, whose need to avenge a friend demands Vash’s death even as his passion demands her surrender.
Soon, their enmity erodes beneath an all-consuming desire. Elijah has never encountered a woman whose warrior spirit and fierce sexual appetite rivals his own, while Vash is faced with the one man strong enough to be her equal. But as war looms, each must decide where their loyalty lies—with their own kind or with the enemy lover they can no longer live without.
