Release Date: July 27, 2010
An immortal war has been brewing in the darkness . . .
And now one woman has stumbled into the shadows.
Chicago private investigator Kira Graceling should have just kept on walking. But her sense of duty refused to let her ignore the moans of pain coming from inside a warehouse just before dawn. Suddenly she finds herself in a world she's only imagined in her worst nightmares.
At the center is Mencheres, a breathtaking Master vampire who thought he'd seen it all. Then Kira appears—this fearless, beautiful . . . human who braved death to rescue him. Though he burns for her, keeping Kira in his world means risking her life. Yet sending her away is unthinkable.
But with danger closing in, Mencheres must choose either the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal destruction.

In ETERNAL KISS OF DARKNESS, Mencheres has lived over 4000 years and wants to end it all. He feels that he has lived long enough until he meets Kira who gives him the strength and the passion to want to live on. But Mencheres faces off against an old enemy Radje who wants to kill him and take his powers. I admit the beginning was a bit slow for me, but the book really did pick up more into it. Most people who are a fan of the Night Huntress series knows that the Cat and Bones is so much more better than the Night Huntress World Series and that is true. No one can compete with such a compelling story as Cat and Bones, but I thought this was a bit better than Spade's book, that is for sure. I loved Mercheres and Kira so much. I kind of still felt that we didn't get enough of them, where the moment after Rajeh is no more.
Dead or not, you must be bored with women telling you how you look like the hottest, most exotic wet dream they’ve ever had. No wonder the thought of you, grapes, and some scented massage oils crossed my mind – and if you drop that towel again, I’m going to need a cold shower."
The only problem I have wit Jeaniene Frost's book is her endings. I wish she would write a epilogue for all of her books, becuase in EKOD. the ending is abrupt. The ending was great with Mencheres knowing that the darkness that he had for seen was not his death but Kira. Kira changed him and brought him back to life. But still she needs a more satisfiying ending with the main characters in the book. But this was still an enjoyable read. I really enjoyed learning about Mencheres because you get to see a different side to him and really respect him for everything that he does. This was much better than First Drop of Crimson. I loved Vlad in this book. He is funny. I am so happy that he will be getting his own book!
