But, can love conquer all? Will Gia and Tajo have their happily-ever-after or is it back to Dumont Tower for this fetching furry girl? Over all, I really liked this story. This was no different, and I would expect no less from Liz Maverick, the writer who created his series. The second story, DX by Carolyn Jewel, had a lot less bite. Although the idea behind this story is very good, the plot has holes and the character development is fairly one-dimensional. The story centers around bounty hunter Hell Marshall falling head over heels for Jaden Lightfeather, a Demon posing as a a federal agent.
Jaden, of course, has a dark secret. Milo is hiding a great deal and just about everyone else is lying, evading the truth, or has a secret identity. This is definitely the weakest story in the anthology. The third tale, School Bites by Jade Lee, is sardonic and darkly humorous with a good deal of steam and my favorite in the anthology.
The main character, special ed teacher Toni Freedman is bitten by a student who turns out to be a werewolf and, even though Toni is treated with a sort of werewolf anti-venom, she still contracts lycantrophy.

With her cousin on her honeymoon halfway around the world she has no hope but to call on Nicodemus. When he is in San Francisco one night finishing up a drink trying not to think of Kimi, he suddenly finds himself in her front room, having been summoned.
Shards of Crimson
He finds out she is being attacked by the Bak-Faru, so puts himself in front of her. Kimi learns a lot about love, men, the varying types of demons and the vishtau-mating during this book. It is a fun ride we take with these two through Crimson City. I really enjoyed Ms. I look forward to reading more by this wonderful author.
I give the book five stars.
If you like witches, demons, and other assorted beings of the night, this book is a great addition to your library. Oct 20, Kerr rated it liked it Shelves: Full review can also be found on: I'd say after too, except that now is technically after reading it and that's when I found out about it being This had an interesting idea and having discovered there was 7 stories of back-history I do wonder if I'd have liked it more if I'd read them all. The main issue I had was that there was a nice build and then I sort of blinked and missed the ending. Also, after all the stressing out he did about hurting her because he was a demon, the sex scene seemed almost anti-climactic haha Nic was a nice character, he was Mr Goodguy even when he didn't really want to be.
Kimi in comparison seemed a little whiny and annoying - perhaps to illustrate the age difference - but it was a little frustrating to read and I ended up not liking her as much. I think the only reason I ended up caring about her was because Nic did.
See a Problem?
The outcome of the storyline was predictable, be this seems to be far more forgiving in novellas - I have no idea why this is true. I'll take things from novellas I wont from full length stories. Perhaps because they have so much less space to build things properly and sometimes corners are cut and traps are fallen into. This had a nice world. There were all manner of supernatural beings present, but we only met demons and witches. And, just like with anyone else there are good and evil in both groups, which was a nice balance.
Overall a good story, perhaps better enjoyed by those already invested - and therefore understanding of - this world.
Shards of Crimson
Mar 09, Shirley rated it really liked it Shelves: Even though this was a novella, there was an awful lot of action and heat packed into it. It was definitely a read that kept my interest and was very easy to finish in one sitting. There was just enough there to be satisfying and still leave you wanting more so you are intrigued enough to pick up the next one.
And yes, it worked. I will be checking out more titles in this series — very sneaky indeed.

Mar 25, Cat rated it really liked it. Ah, what a well told short story! I didn't feel like I was missing information or that I needed to hear more although I would like to ;! The characters are interesting enough and the plot is decent. The climax is a bit too short happens very suddenly but it is a novella.
The only downfall that I can see is Kimi's mention of her virginity on more than one occasion, yet neither Kimi nor Nic mention it again. Good, quick read with lots of sexy tension. May 14, Dren rated it liked it. This is my first entry into this series and this book interests me enough that I want to read the first novel in the series. If you're looking for a something quick and interesting, pick this one up. Mar 06, Lyndsey rated it it was amazing. Although this was a very short read, it was well written with a great plot. I would've loved to have a longer story just to flesh out more of the relationship, especially at the end.
Overall, though, very good short story on a newer take on demons. Recommended for a fast read. Sep 28, Michelle rated it liked it Shelves: I haven't read any of this series but I have been wanting to try it so I thoght I'd give this novella a try to see if I liked the writing style.
I did enjoy it but I know I would like it more if I had read them in order. Mar 30, SheLove2Read rated it it was ok Shelves: One of my favorite authors but I didn't feel like this was her best work. Mar 27, Arthetta Rodgers rated it really liked it. Kind of erotic which I like and the storyline was really good.
