I read the 1st book in this series, "Crimson City" and was familiar with the set up of future Los Angeles. This particularly installment deals with the underground world of the werewolves. Liu's description of the tunnels were good - I almost felt the walls closing in on me at times.

The book takes place over a span of a few days - The plot began to get just a bit mired down when the two main characters, Keeli & Michael, hung out in the tunnels just a bit too long. Lots of jockeying for power and dominance within the werewolf community.

One thing I noticed, the characters had lots of "thoughts" in italics. Though I don't read many historical romances, this style reminded me of that genre. I thought those types of thoughts for Michael were just a bit too girly. He is this big, bad loner and, yeah, he immediately likes Keeli. I just didn't picture his character thinking these types of thoughts as much as he did. A few here and there would have been fine.

As I mentioned in my review of the 1st installment, "Crimson City", I would have like to read a bit of background on how LA became residence to three species - humans, vamps and werewolves. Understanding the history of how they got there would have enhanced the storyline. It would have revealed why the werewolves are so poor and looked down upon. That type of message would also explain in more detail their distrust of the vampires and humans.

Overall, a good read. I will get to the 3rd installment soon.

Marjorie M Liu has the amazing ability to take the tone of headline news and spin it into the most romantic of poetry.

I'm not going to provide a synopsis as that has been repeatedly done by other reviewers. For me, the author told a story in 372 pages that should have been 272 pages. Some things are redundant. Ms. Liu just because you rephrase something doesn't mean you aren't repeating yourself over and over and over again. It is for that reason that I will not read another one of your books. Fellow readers, that is not to say that you won't find this read rewarding; it's just not for me. The concept of vampires, werewolves, and humans isn't unique; but, it could have been so much more interesting than it was depicted in "A Taste of Crimson". Someone is killing vampires and less than half way through the book, I knew who it was. For me the mystery was why and who was behind it. Unfortunately, the answers became a disappointment. I understood why Michael, the Vendix, killed and was shunned by his people; his motivation for killing was clear. I enjoyed Keeli most of all. Her transition from pup to top dog was page turning. I got the attraction and connection between Keeli and Michael. The erotica in this book is more implied, keeping this book in the paranormal romance genre. For me, that was a missed opportunity for some hot expression. In general, there was not enough action in this tale. I found this to be a disappointing read.

Marjorie Liu is a beautiful writer with strong characters, a wonderful story line and a lyrical sense of prose. I will probably read anything by her and love it. So I hope she hurries up and writes something else in Dirk and Steele series! Incidently, I read all the books in the Crimson City series, and this book was, by far, my favorite.

Marjorie M Liu is a great author. Crimson City is an imagantive new series from Love Spell's. Put the two together and you have magic. What if a the city's preeminent vampire enforcer, Michael, and a pink haired werewolf, Keeli, get stuck investigating a series of murders? All the vics are vamps and the killer maybe a wolf. Vamp/wolf politics are already tense. What if they fall in love? Did I mention that Keeli's the only surviving grandchild of the city's werewolf leader.

I am a Marjorie M. Liu fan, which is what brought me to the Crimson City series in the first place. If anyone knows why Ms. Liu didn’t write more of the series, I’d love to hear it. You know, hear it in my head as I read what you wrote. Alas, she did not write more of the series. She isn’t included in promos for the series and frankly I don’t get that.

I’ve continued to read the Crimson City series and I think that the future authors handled Ms. Liu’s characters with respect.
I hope you enjoy your foray into “A Taste of Crimson,” should you choose to embark on the journey.

Yup. I am so sick of how the male love interests in all the urban fantasy I read are all white and macho. This was a nice deviation and I will definitely look for more from Marjorie M Liu.
I keep thinking that I have already rated these. However, I can do it again. I loved all of these Crimson City books. Having different authors contributing keeps the stories different and alive. Cant wait for more
