Bis(s) zum Tod …

Ein Leben ohne Vampire wäre Genny Taylor auch ganz recht. Aber leider scheint sie die Wesen der Nacht magisch anzuziehen. Dabei ist ihr Leben so schon kompliziert genug: Sie wird von Geistern verfolgt, von Hexen aus ihrer Wohnung geworfen und von ihrem Ex, der gleichzeitig ihr Boss ist, auf Abstand gehalten. Und dann findet man auch noch einen ihrer Freunde tot auf, und sie ist die Hauptverdächtige. Genny will nur eines: den wahren Mörder zur Rechenschaft ziehen. Doch dazu wird sie die Wesen aufsuchen müssen, die ihr sehr gefährlich werden könnten …

Vampire, Geister, Hexen und ein mysteriöser Mord – spannend, witzig und sehr sexy …

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Octane a href=""Kaleidoscope Reviews/a Ah, Genny. In trouble with the vampires again! THE COLD KISS OF DEATH took everything introduced in book 1, THE SWEET SCENT OF BLOOD, and went deeper and darker, making for more trouble for our poor protagonist, Genny Taylor. Genny is a half-vampire, half-sidhe. She works for, a business that fixes magical problems. Genny is being haunted by a ghost that she can't communicate with. Finn, the satyr Genny thought was getting romantic with her, has become her boss and gone cold in the romance department. Things get crazy when a vampire's human attendant shows up at Genny's place to demand the Faberge egg in Genny's possession, and then Genny is framed for the murder of a human friend. Suddenly she's on the run from a growing number of humans and supernaturals. The overarching mystery is wonderfully woven around supernatural incidents. Genny finds herself in an awkward situation-- asking for help from an ex-boyfriend while Finn is there and the boys literally bash their fae heads together. She's chased by dryads when the fae community get upset because they think she killed that human. Then Genny's vampire disguise-- the spell that enables her to change into the vampire Rosa so she can manage the disease she'd contracted-- stops working. In fact, the spell may have Genny connected more tightly to Rosa than she'd like. This is a particular problem because the other vampires don't like Rosa and want her dead. I would have liked seeing more of Genny at work doing the spellcracking thing. I always think that's neat. But, you know, being on the run when she's wanted for murder, I guess she's not going to stop to help a few clients. It was great that the murder was tied directly to her spellcracking, though. It was the magical equivalent of being caught with the smoking gun or the blood-covered knife. In all, THE COLD KISS OF DEATH makes for some high-octane reading. I loved getting more time with the fae in this book. The vampires are still a large part of the plot and they're great, but they're less of a novelty item this time around and more of the political-positioning vampires. The mystery kept me reading right to the end-- twisty and unpredictable. Just the way I like it.
