Vampires. Werewolves. Beasts that hunt in the night...When New Orleans Detective Jane Hart investigates her first official homicide case, she never expects to have her world ripped apart. But the murder she’s investigating is part of a deadly war between vampires and werewolves…and now Jane is caught in that eternal battle. A battle that can’t end well.

Werewolf Aidan Locke has been running New Orleans for years. It’s his job to keep the vamps out of the city. But when a Master Vampire comes to town, determined to unleash hell, Aidan knows it’s time to fight with all the fury of his pack. Beast versus vamp, until the last breath. Then he meets Jane…

One look, one taste, and Aidan knows that Jane is far more than she seems. Far more than she even knows herself to be. She’s important in the paranormal war, not a pawn to be used, but a queen to be won. And if he can’t keep her at his side, if he can’t stop the darkness from descending on the town…then Jane Hart will become not just a fierce cop, not some guardian, but something deadlier. Darker. Aidan will fight heaven and hell to change her fate. To change their fate because he is more than just a predator.

And Jane is more than prey. Far more.

The world is changing—for the humans and the monsters. Hot, sexy, and intense, BITE THE DUST is the first novel in New York Times and USA Today best-selling author Cynthia Eden’s dark new “Blood and Moonlight” series.

Elizabeth's Thoughts
Another pulse-pounding, brilliant read from Cynthia Eden!

Oh my goodness! Ms. Eden won me over once more with her entertaining and exciting storytelling! I absolutely loved the book. I couldn’t put it down! I loved the new twist she put on werewolves and vampires while weaving mystery, intrigue and betrayal intricately throughout the plot!

I loved and deeply admired Jane’s character. She is strong, no-nonsense and a complete match for anyone who comes afoul on her. Aidan was a perfect match in wits, strength and exasperation. He’s a hunky werewolf that is fiercely protective and wickedly funny. I loved them together as well as separately.

What I also really loved about the book was that their relationship was not insta-love and destiny-filled. Their chemistry was on a slow simmer that gradually morphed into something explosive and intense. I was totally captivated.

The secondary characters were also brilliant! I can’t wait to find out more about Paris, Garrison and the rest of Aidan’s pack, as well as a Voodoo Queen and an interesting medical examiner. The story has everything and I cannot wait to read the next book! I highly recommend this or any one of Cynthia Eden’s books!

I was gifted an eBook copy from the publisher via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review. All conclusions reached are my own.
