Shades of Wicked by Jeaniene Frost
Shades of Wicked - Jeaniene Frost

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

I loved this book! I have to tell you that I went into this book with pretty high expectations. How could I not?! I have enjoyed the heck out of the books in the Night Huntress world and Ian is an awesome character. I knew that this would be a great book and I am happy to report that I was right. Once I started reading this book, I didn't want to put it down. It was really a lot of fun to be back in this world for just a bit.

This is the first book in the Night Rebel series which takes place within the Night Huntress world. Fans of the Night Huntress series have had a chance to get to know many of the characters that appear in this story but this book does stand on its own. I think that readers new to the Night Huntress world will be able to start with this book without any problem. I have read most of the books but it has been quite a few years and I hate to admit that I forgot a whole lot of the details but I had no problem keeping up with this book.

This story focuses on Ian and Veritas. Veritas is determined to take care of a demon and she thinks that Ian may be able to help. I really didn't remember much about Veritas from earlier books but she is a Law Guardian and upholds vampire laws. She is really old and has a few extra abilities. Ian quickly learns that she may be willing to bend a few rules if it helps them achieve their goal.

Ian and Veritas made a great pair. They seemed to understand each other from the very start. It was fun watching them try to outsmart the other, oftentimes unsuccessfully. They fought well together and against each other. It was just a ton of fun to see their interactions and I loved the way that they instinctively knew when they should trust each other.

This book had everything that I was looking for when I picked it up. There was plenty of action with some pretty intense scenes. I found that parts of the book were rather comical and couldn't help reading with a big smile on my face. I loved the chemistry between Ian and Veritas and enjoyed watching them become a team. I had a great time learning about the background and extra abilities that Veritas has.

I would highly recommend this book to others. I had a fantastic time with this story and thought that Ian and Veritas were perfectly matched. I cannot wait to read more from this new series!

I received a review copy of this book from Avon Books.

Initial Thoughts
It was as good as I hoped it would be. Ian has met his match!

Great final book. 
Bones and Cat were back. I loved their banter and Cat's thoughts and sayings were humorous. There were some really unexpected turns, truly heartwrenching moments, and a lot of action. My favourite characters Marie, Vlad, and Ian were also back. Loved it.

The storyline was rather good but ...
How clueless can a person be? I am so disappointed right now. Cat used to be such a bright girl. In this book she didn't have the edge, didn't use her brain, and wasn't as witty as before. Actually, she was quite annoying at times. And Bones ... where was the fierce vampire hottie I've learned to love? There were times when the villain seemed to be the only intelligent person. Finally about ten pages before the story ended Bones proved he had brains, too. I was actually impressed because all through the book I waited him to start discussing pension plans, wear comfy slippers or something similar. It was so weird. Even sex scenes didn't have the usual spark. Did I mention how disappointed I was?
If it weren't for the other characters it would be a 2-star book. Fortunately Tyler, Dexter, Ian and Spade managed to entertain me enough to finish the book and even enjoy some of the chapters.

For a good portion of this book, I was sure my rating was going to be 2 or 2.5 stars at the most. Both of the main characters, Leila and Vlad, were annoying me. But, somewhere along the way, I got invested in the story...mainly because I wanted to see the villain get what was coming to him for the awful things Leila suffered during her captivity in the current time, and for the horrible things Vlad suffered during his captivity as a child hundreds of years ago. The annoying things became less annoying the more I wanted vengeance for these characters, I guess.

 

Though, I did do a lot of eye rolling...

 

There's one more book in this series, and I'll likely be saving it for next year's Halloween Bingo.

 

Also, reading this reminded me that I still need to read the final Cat and Bones book, though, I do believe the ending of that book was spoiled in this one. :
