Killing vampires is easy. Trusting one will be the hardest thing Dahlia Sabin has ever done.
Dahlia has lived a lonely existence as a killer of the undead. Known as The Blushing Death to those that fear her, Dahlia uncovers a plot by Columbus’s Master Vampire, Ethan. He intends to raise a demon from the depths of hell to destroy the city, cement his power, and take control.
In her pursuit to stop a demon from manifesting, Dahlia sinks deeper into the city’s supernatural underworld and discovers that vampires are not only deadly; one in particular could be dangerous to her very soul and her heart. Patrick, the Master vampire’s second-in-command with dark penetrating eyes and a cool, deadly sophistication, can’t stay away and Dahlia can’t tell him no. There’s something that neither of them knows, Ethan wants Dahlia’s unleashed power for himself and is willing to do anything to get it.
Dahlia is in a race against time to send the demon back to hell, at war with her better judgment, trusting a dark and intriguing vampire with his own agenda, while struggling to save her own neck. As the portal to hell opens, Dahlia has only herself to rely on in order to survive, if she can . . .
Also be sure to check out more action in the second book of the series with Dahlia Sabin, MIDNIGHT ASH.

Immediately the story launches into action, there’s no slow build up here.
Dahlia is kick ass. The Blushing Death is her nickname if that gives you any idea. She manages to be the tough vampire/demon slayer while still being sexy and fun. She doesn’t know the depths of her own power, and discovers new levels throughout the book.
Jade is a great friend and brings so much to the story, I loved getting to know her.
Danny fled the scene after the hottest first kiss ever, I found myself anxiously waiting for him to call and for the next date.
Patrick is one of the most sexy vampires I’ve ever read about… His being so possessive of Dahlia was surprising and incredibly hot.
It brings to mind the age old question “should I date a werewolf or a vampire?” Hot or cold, day or night?
Pool of Crimson is full of vivid characters with great interactions. Interesting twists to the plot kept me reading, I couldn’t wait to find out what would happen next. Great mix of violence, humor and passion.
A fun, dangerous and sexy read, I would say this is a great book and I’m looking forward to reading more by Suzanne M. Sabol
