Book Review: Shades of Wicked by Jeaniene Frost

Shades of Wicked
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series: A Night Rebel Novel
Publication: Avon (October 30, 2018)

Description: The Rule Breaker...

Master vampire Ian is unrepentant, shameless…and every shade of wicked. He’s made one too many enemies in his two centuries of existence, including Dagon, a demon who now lays claim to his soul. Ian’s only chance to escape Dagon is to join forces with a Law Guardian, but he's never been able to abide by the rules for long.

The Law Maker...

Veritas’ normal role is police, judge, and jury to reprobates like Ian. But she has her own ax to grind with Dagon, so if she can use Ian as bait...well, all’s fair in law and war. As they scour supernatural hotspots to perfect their trap, Veritas soon realizes Ian’s carefully cultivated, devil-may-care roguish image hides something much more powerful. And Ian discovers Veritas has shocking secrets of her own. As they’re drawn to each other with a passion as intense as their peril, either love or justice will prevail. But each will have devastating consequences.

My Thoughts: Ian and Veritas couldn't be more different. He's a proud hedonist always looking for the next thrill. She's a rule follower, a cop, a judge, and jury to those who break supernatural law. The only thing they have in common is a hatred for the demon Dago who is trying really hard to ruin both of their lives.

Dagon had kept Veritas as a prisoner for years using her ability to gain himself worshipers and human sacrifices. He also tricked Ian into giving up his soul. Ian and Veritas both have reasons to want Dagon dead but he is a formidable enemy.

Of course, Ian and Veritas are enemies, too, until they realize that they share a goal. They need to find a way to work together to accomplish that goal. As they get to know each other, Veritas spills secrets that no one else knows and Ian reveals depths that no one else has seen.

This story was action-packed, filled with wonderful characters including a flying, demon dog, and filled with romance too. I can't wait for the second book in this new series.
