A must read!

I loved this book, it is about a psychic private detective and her trek through the dangerous vampire filled streets of Lyndhurst. As a former orphan and, street smart kid Nikki James is used to the trouble filled streets, so when she follows a girl(someone she is tracking for her job) into the town's "Haunted house", she thinks she knows what to expect. Nikki is in for an unwanted surprise when she finds out that she really doesn't know everything about what goes bump in the night. Because of her psychic abilities she is a high prize for two feuding vampires who have chosen the town of Lyndhurst as their battle ground. But before she knows what has hit her she finds herself on more than friendly terms with one of the vampires. As the story progresses you, the reader, with find yourself face to face with a sociopathic vampire and a strangely erotic vampire romance. This book is a must read for all vampire lovers. Five stars! I loved

Fast and Exciting reading!

This first book in the series is GREAT! If you like the Anita Blake Vampire books you will like this author. Keri Arthur builds the characters of Nikki, Jake and Michael extremely well and keeps you interested from start to finish. Nikki was a "street kid" with psychic/kenetic abilities that had seen too much death and betrayal in her live. She bonds with her current client (yes, she too is a private eye) and gets pulled into a battle between two enemy vampires.Too bad there aren't any more books by her yet!

What A Supernatural Ride!!

First of all, I LOVED this book. I bought it on a whim and I am soooooooooo glad that I did. Nikki James is a private investigator who possesses physic ability. She believes that there is nothing in this world that would shock her. She has seen it all or so she believes . . . One night, she trails a young girl into a mansion whose history is steeped in evil. She senses the menace hoovering in the dark shadows. The evil waiting to be unleashed. She has no conceivable idea of what is waiting in the deep shadows. Nikki becomes a pawn caught between two different vampires. Jasper is supremely evil possessing a madness that threatens her own sanity. Michael has tracked his long time enemy to Lyndhurst, determined to destroy him yet Nikki isn't sure if he is on the side of the angels. Can she trust him?The deadly cat and mouse game between Jasper and Michael was incredible and kept me on the edge of my seat. Both are trying to outwit the other. The scenes were so realistic, I was drawn into their world. Not too mention all of the other supernatural creatures that wait in the shadows!This story wasn't so much of a lovestory. Oh, there was romance between Nikki and Michael but it didn't overtake the story. Both of them have secrets they are keeping from each other. Both are afraid to love . . . From the start of page one until the very end, the action was non stop and intense. I could not put this book down. What a supernatural ride!!!

Loved it!

It seems I've been looking for too long for a book that's going to keep my interest from beginning to end, but this book did it. Michael is suitably dark & tortured, and Nikki takes no prisoners, while maintaining a believeable vulnerability. The action *moves*, thanks to the author's atmospheric phrasing.I liked this book over Laurel Hamilton's for a very simple reason--I didn't fell 'teased' by having the heroine go back & forth between two men. While that worked for the first few Anita Blake books, I started to get sick of it. With 'Dancing With The Devil', it was obvious that Michael & Nikki had a true connection--can't wait to read the sequel!


This is Keri Arthur's first published book.. and in my mind excellent. The story is fast moving and leaves you sitting on the edge of your seat.. I read this book in one sitting and was not amused with anyone who interrupted me. The Story.. is of a psychic Detective.. and her colleague.. The case involves a missing rich girl... once found she leads them to a situation that will mean changing their beliefs in everything.. Enter vampires one good, one evil... a load of yukky zombies and you have a fastpace gripping novel... Romance develops with Michael but both have some serious baggage... this is a story that the more sentimental of us..will need a good mansize box of tissues... Very emotional in places.. I loved this book and I believe that those who love a good Vampire Romance with enjoy this book.. so give it a go.. I think its worth it... I can't wait for the sequel... My congratulations to Keri on an excellent story and very enjoyable to read... and I imagine books always have such interesting covers and the print is nice and easy on the eyes
