The Crimson Corset (The Vampires of Crimson Cove Book 1) by Alistair Cross #mf #review @CrossAlistair


The Crimson CorsetWelcome to Crimson Cove

Sheltered by ancient redwoods overlooking the California coast, the cozy village of Crimson Cove has it all: sophisticated retreats, fine dining, and a notorious nightclub, The Crimson Corset. It seems like a perfect place to relax and get close to nature. But not everything in Crimson Cove is natural.

When Cade Colter moves to town, he expects it to be peaceful to the point of boredom. But he quickly learns that after the sun sets and the fog rolls in, the little tourist town takes on a whole new kind of life – and death.

Darkness at the Edge of Town

Renowned for its wild parties and history of debauchery, The Crimson Corset looms on the edge of town, inviting patrons to sate their most depraved desires and slake their darkest thirsts. Proprietor Gretchen VanTreese has waited centuries to annihilate the Old World vampires on the other side of town and create a new race – a race that she alone will rule. When she realizes Cade Colter has the key that will unlock her plan, she begins laying an elaborate trap that will put everyone around him in mortal danger.

Blood Wars

The streets are running red with blood, and as violence and murder ravage the night, Cade must face the darkest forces inside himself, and perhaps even abandon his own humanity, in order to protect what he loves. addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da16 Kim Talks TomesTAG

Just when you think you’ve read everything you need to know about Vampires, another book comes along and shows you that there is more out there. The Crimson Corset is so much more than just another vampire book. Full of darkness and horror, this story features a war against good vs evil. Those that cherish humans and those that drain them. The Crimson Corset is full of many plot twists. Gretchen is not a meek little girl, but a kick-butt woman bent on controlling the vampires and making them her’s. She’ll go to any length to do that, including manipulation of Cade.

I found this story to be intriguing and very well done. I love a good horror story, but I don’t like too much gore. This one has the perfect balance between horror and fantasy, making me want to keep on reading. The characters are very well developed and unexpected in certain parts of the story. Just when you think you know what is going on, the plot takes a turn and you have to start guessing all over, again. Love that kind of story! It’s a must read for those that enjoy a little horror with your paranormal.
