All her life Seattle reporter Kristin Reed sought her breakout story. She never thought she’d find it in the crimson lair of a real life creature of the night. Kristin never believed vampires existed—until with dark brooding eyes and a decadent chocolate scent, Dmitri Dionotte called out to her….
Dmitri and his clan’s true nature was cloaked in secrecy until a warring vampire order threatened their existence. Kristin was just the woman he needed. She couldn’t resist their story…or Dmitri. Her blood pulsed hot and furious when he touched her, and with his kiss, all logic fled. But each night she spent with her vampire lover brought her closer to death and destruction. A death not even an immortal could triumph over.
Clare C's Review
The Truth about Vampires caught my attention from word one and held it for the entire ride. Dimitri Dionotte is strong, smart, and sensitive. He has strong morals and fierce loyalties. However, he doesn’t run over the heroine and impose his will on her. Kristin Reed is my favorite kind of heroine. She’s driven, focused, intelligent, and strong. Her mission to win a Pulitzer isn’t derailed because she falls for a vampire. I love a heroine who doesn’t give up what she wants for the hero. A real hero wants his lover to achieve her dreams.
This novel isn’t just a love story. The plot revolves around the exposure of the existence of vampires to humans. Two warring factions even go to war with humans watching their every move. Themes of racism are explored when huge masses of mortals react badly to finding out vampires are real. The pacing of the action and the skillful writing kept me riveted and on the edge of my seat the whole time. Meyers weaves layers of plot and theme together with great characters to create one heck of a novel. The major conflicts are resolved in this installment, but that conflict creates a ripple of more problems. I, for one, can’t wait to read the next installment of Meyers’s Sons of Midnight series.
