"Xander Stryker wants to die.
Ever since witnessing his mother's murder at the hands of his abusive stepfather when he was a boy, he has spent every day trying to reach that goal. But every night he's denied the death he craves.
When his eighteenth birthday approaches, an unforeseen chance for change is offered when his life is plunged into chaos and he's dragged into a supernatural world of vampires and other creatures of darkness. Caught in the depths of this new reality, mysteries of his supernatural lineage begin to unravel and Xander is given the ultimate choice:
Continue on with his wretched life or begin a new one as the vampire he was always meant to be.
Unfortunately, the supernatural world can be just as unforgiving and brutal as any other and Xander's choice is met with disastrous consequences. Now, with the chaos of the new world pressing down on him, his past reemerges and once again threatens to crush him. Will Xander be able to use his new strength to conquer his fears, or will he succumb to his own bloody darkness...
... and allow it to finally destroy him."

I am one with a taste for vampire novels. I thought I had read them all. I was wrong. This is a wonderful approach to vampire lore. It has a bold freshness that I have not seen in a very long time. The story it self has the ring of true honesty from the author. It is dark and enticing a book you just cant stop reading. As a woman I utterly fell in love with Xander and I must say the hot guy they have on the cover helps, but it truly is the way he is written. I felt his pain and would offer what ever to sooth his pain. Xander do you like O+ ?
LOOK OUT ANNE RICE NATHAN SQUIERS IS HERE!"

"A Dark and Tormenting Tale
Crimson Shadow Noir definitely delivers the dark! Xander Stryker is a tormented soul that wraps around your heart and makes you want to lash out at those that want to hurt him. He's not your typical hero, he's better than that, he's dark and tortured by a past he can't escape and yet uses that dark and that abuse to make himself stronger, better, more fierce. He goes after those that abuse and bully and he fights to make the world a better place, though I don't think Xander would look at it that way. I loved every minute of this book and I am very much looking forward to reading the next book in what I hope is a series!"
