The Scarlet Dagger by Krystle Jones

The Scarlet Dagger [The Red Sector Chronicles #1]
By Krystle Jones

From Goodreads:
The strength of Sloane’s heart is about to be put to the ultimate test.

After the Eclipse – the night vampires began openly slaughtering human victims – everything changed. Out of fear, the government salvaged what remained of the human population and enclosed them in massive, security-laden cities called White Sectors, while marking the vampire infested territory as Red Sectors.

When seventeen-year-old Sloane McAllister’s twin brother disappears, she seems to be the only one who thinks he isn’t dead, and vows to stop at nothing to find him. Gathering her courage, she braves the Red Sector to search for clues to his whereabouts. By chance, she encounters Aden, a handsome, charismatic vampire with a hidden agenda. He turns Sloane against her will, and whisks her away to his underground city. Enemies quickly become friends as Sloane struggles against her attraction to Aden, and resists her growing loyalties to the creatures that ruined her life. But the vampires themselves are the least of her problems. The city is harboring a devastating secret, one that could change the tide of the war and threaten to destroy everything Sloane has come to believe in.

Heart-stopping action and scorching romance collide in this dystopian, urban fantasy thriller.

Alexia’s Review:
What an EPIC book!! I just love a book that is action packed – I’m talking about sitting on the edge of your seat biting your nails type. The characters are freaking awesome and captivated my attention from the beginning.

Sloane… um… wow just wow!! She is a warrior through and through, whether it’s physical or emotional. She is tactful and strong willed – you need to watch your back if you ever get on her bad side. Having said how amazingly kick ass she is, she is also soft hearted and gullible – I love that about her, she’s got the whole package. She is thrown into a whole new ‘world’ and yet she rises to every occasion, kicking ass’ and taking names. She is a true heroine.

Now for the swoon worthy boy toy in the book – Aden! Firstly, can I have him?? Pretty please?! *bats eyelashes* Holy moly, cinnamon and cloves… he makes my blood boil *fans self*. Aden leaves you second guessing where his loyalty lies and yet when in doubt I still want to believe in him. He is very protective of Sloane and will do practically anything to care for her. *wipes drool from mouth* Ok I can carry on now…

This is a very well written book, that leaves you wanting for more! Very gripping storyline with twists and turns – you better hold onto your seat when reading this sucker, it’s a bumpy ride. J I can’t freaking wait to read the next installment of The Red Sector Chronicles. Krystle you get a standing ovation from me!!

Delicious – make mine a double
