Killing vampires is
easy. Trusting one will be the hardest thing Dahlia Sabin has ever done.
Dahlia has lived a lonely existence as a killer of the undead. Known as
The Blushing Death to those that fear her, Dahlia uncovers a plot by
Columbus's Master Vampire, Ethan. He intends to raise a demon from the
depths of hell to destroy the city, cement his power, and take control.
In her pursuit to stop a demon from manifesting, Dahlia sinks deeper
into the city's supernatural underworld and discovers that vampires are
not only deadly; one in particular could be dangerous to her very soul
and her heart. Patrick, the Master vampire's second-in-command with dark
penetrating eyes and a cool, deadly sophistication, can't stay away and
Dahlia can't tell him no. There's something that neither of them knows,
Ethan wants Dahlia's unleashed power for himself and is willing to do
anything to get it. Dahlia is in a race against time to send the demon
back to hell, at war with her better judgment, trusting a dark and
intriguing vampire with his own agenda, while struggling to save her own
neck. As the portal to hell opens, Dahlia has only herself to rely on
in order to survive, if she can ...
Pool of Crimson by Suzanne M. Sabol
Vampires, werewolves, demons and one lethal vampire killer, The Blushing Death equals one amazing and dark tale from Suzanne M. Sabol titled Pool of Crimson. Dahlia Sabin trusts no one, her life is lonely and she deals with the dark side of life, the part that normal people believe is all myth. She is The Blushing Death. When she discovers a demon is about to be raised by the Master Vampire in town, she becomes determined to stop him, but time is not on her side and she never expected the Master’s second-in-command to prove to be a danger to her heart, as well as her life. Is Patrick being honest about his feelings or is he an agent of evil, in search of the powers she possesses for his master?
Suzanne M. Sabol can write dark paranormal intrigue and romance. With powerful villains, a feisty heroine who knows how to take care of herself, well, except for her confusing romantic attractions, and a plot that flows with the tension and action, like a river rapids, this is an excellent fantasy read. No one was perfect, no one was completely evil, but even with some slightly blurred lines, each twist and turn made this ride a wonderful from start to the unknown finish! Ms. Sabol doesn’t’ ease us into her world, she drops us in from at least 30 stories above, so when you land, get ready for the action, the steam and the conflict to come barreling right at you!
