A hidden society of vampires—and the humans they love—are at the heart of this opening novel in a biting, all-original series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightwalkers saga.
Rafe DaSilva is an energy vampire, soaking up nourishment from the sun—and, only when necessary, drawing sweet sustenance from humans who are pure in body and spirit. As the right-hand man to his queen, Rafe is a key player at a historic peace summit in New York City, which will unite the vampire nations against a common threat: the sycophants, who feed on humanity and kill indiscriminately. But Rafe’s fascination with a beautiful blond police detective may put everything at risk.
Detective Renee Holden has never worked a homicide quite like this. The victim has twin puncture wounds on his neck, and the only eyewitness swears she saw a vampire. Now’s …not the time to get distracted by a seductive stranger. But the suave, darkly austere, exotically handsome Rafe DaSilva is a hard man to deny, and as Renee falls under his spell, she also falls prey to his enemies. Desperate to protect her, Rafe lifts the veil on a shadow realm she can only visit—a world of intoxicating power, terrifying dangers, and forbidden pleasures.
Jacquelyn Frank begins 2017 on a high note. With book #1 in her new Paranormal romance…we’re introduced to a whole new breed of vampire. Rafe DaSilva is an energy vampire sworn to protect his queen. Rogue vampires are out to destroy others like Rafe and to do this they are planning to sabotage the summit meeting that is being held in New York. On top of that, there is a vampire going around killing humans threatening the secret of their existence. It’s now up to Rafe to hunt them down before an Ace Homicide Detective discover the true nature of the serial killer.
Thirst will provide hours of entertainment as you dive into the world of a hidden society. Thirst was a well-developed, fast pace novel. A very strong start to this series. A must read, this reviewer can’t wait to see what happens further along in this series.
