    For Eve Dallas is all protect and serve even if in this novella the victims are exsanguinated through a two pronged wound through the carotid artery. A vampire bite. Very interesting.

    4 stars - Romantic Suspense/Futuristic/Mystery/Crime/Romantic ThrillerThis was a great novella! "Eve Dallas, Vampire Slayer. One for the books." Light killed shadows, and it created them. But what loved the dark would always scuttle back from the light. Her badge had given her the light, Eve knew. Then Roarke had simply, irreversibly, blasted that light straight through her.

    I think this is the first book in this series that hasn't mentioned the busy streets of New York and the smell of grilling soy dogs.

    #24.5 in the In Death seriesAnother winner in this wonderful series. This is a brief episode following the death of a rich young woman who seemingly died from a vampire bite. When they delve into the underground club called Bloodbath, they discover a whole different world of people who believe in this strange cult. Dorion is a charismatic leader who reminds Eve of her father. Appearances by all of our favorite members of the team.

    The novellas tend to have a paranormal flavor, and this one is no exception. Early in the series, I thought Eve’s own mystical powers would play a greater role as time passed, but that hasn't happened. Nonetheless, I love the way Peabody and Roarke always line up together as sympathetic to occult powers, while Eve is hyper-rational. While I tend to agree with her, I wouldn’t mind being proved wrong occasionally.Eve’s careful in this story, so she takes Roarke, a couple of other cops, and plenty of firepower when she ventures underground at night. Nora always does a great job of creating spooky settings, and the killer’s lair is wonderfully weird. Even better, whether by magic or otherwise, he manages to fool Eve despite all her caution, and she collects evidence that proves he isn’t a murderer. My main problem with the story is that it’s too short. She doesn’t fall down any rabbit holes, and her instincts immediately tell her when she meets the right-wrong guy. But there a couple of twists and turns. I did enjoy the way the murderer avoided being arrested by the police, and he definitely had a flair for the dramatic. In the end, he managed to give Eve a good run for her money. I was plenty worried for her, despite knowing she had to survive to be in the next book. Another fun read.

    Tiara Kent had it all: beauty, youth, money. Now she's dead, found in her bed exsanguinated through two puncture wounds in her neck. The search for the killer leads Eve to an underground club catering to vampire groupies, owned by a man purporting himself to be a vampire who gives even Eve the creeps. Another Halloween-ish novella, entertaining short read.

    This was a fun little story that had Eve Dallas going up against a self-proclaimed vampire. Things get creepy when a famous socialite is murdered in her bed with bite marks on her neck. Eve and her partner, Peabody, are then thrust into the underworld of New York City as they investigate a "vampire" club.I am a huge fan of vampire-themed stories so I was excited to see the pragmatic Eve deal with the potential for paranormal antics. It was interesting how JD Robb made the culprit pretty obvious from the beginning yet I still felt the suspense element while listening. I knew that Eve would get the "Dark Prince", but I wasn't sure how she would be able to prove it. And she kicked some major ass while doing so. One should never underestimate what Eve will do to get justice.On the more personal side of the series, Eve is forced (once again) to deal with demons from her past. The main suspect strongly reminds her of her dead father in his mannerisms which causes the nightmares to make a re-appearance. I thought I would get tired of this plot point by now, but I still find it interesting. Eve is such a tough woman that these types of situations show that she is still human. Vulnerability isn't something she deals with well and I always look forward to seeing how she has grown to accept that part of her personality. And it doesn't hurt that Roarke is always there to help her in anyway possible.Susan Ericksen does a killer narration as always and JD Robb provides readers with a short, but entertaining look into the world of Eve and her friends. While I think the books in this series work best when read in order, this one could be read as a stand-alone to fans of vampire books that want to give it a try.

    This is one of the novellas for this series. I'm not a vampire story lover, but this one is fun. It is actually one of my favorites of the shorter novels, mostly because it is suspenseful despite it's length, and I just love Peabody; she has some great lines in this one! The other one of the short ones that I like is Haunted in Death, another funny one for Peabody. A socialite is found dead in her apt, killed with what looks like a vampire bite. Eve, Peabody, Roarke, and McNab proceed to a new underground vampire club where they are introduced to the Club's owner, Eve's #1 suspect. He's very charismatic and I originally thought he got the upper hand on Roarke in their initial meeting. But oh, how could I be so foolish? Roarke is ever the strategist. There are some nice twists, and although I prefer the longer versions of this series, I definitely recommend this one, even if you are not into vampires. I also recommend the audio, as the suspense factor is escalated, and Susan Erickson, the reader, is top-notch.If you want to read it, this book can be found in the anthology book Dead of Night, along with 3 other authors.

    Eve meets Anita.There are two series I have followed for quite some time that have strong leading female characters, the In Death series and the Anita Blake series. In this novella, we get eve dealing with a case involving vampires. It is not clear a first whether she is dealing with the real thing or if it is just normal people acting as bloodsuckers. The reality is that the tone of this story reminded me quite a bit of my other favorite heroine, Anita, who spends his days dealing with supernatural creatures.Robb did a great job in packing a solid punch in a relatively short book. I think that the idea to differentiate this stories from the typical novels in the series by introducing a different tone and some possible supernatural elements is a good one. The other main difference from the "normal" novels is that we do not get the personal stories developed, which makes total sense to me. In this way it this book becomes more of a stand alone. It has all the characters we know, but someone new to the series can read it without missing anything. That is why if there are readers out there wanting to get a quick read that gives them a flair of what the In Death series is about, this may be a good bet. Bear in mind the differences I mentioned above and you will be fine.

    Normally I save two stars for books that I really didn't like, but didn't out and out despise. Eternity in Death is the exception.It's not a terrible book. It's not particularly a mystery, more a police procedural thriller. What is is, is a cop-out. There are a couple of these in the 'In Death' series, and to me, they stand out like a sore thumb.These, 'gimmick' entries into the series always piss me off. 'In Death' books follow a few basic templates; Eve catches a homicide involving a famous serial killer/terrorist group, a homicide involving friends/relatives/co-workers close to her or Rourke, a homicide that turns out to have international ramifications - ie. illegal medical/technological experimentation. The gimmicky ones involve ghosts and monsters and in Eternity in Death - vampires.It doesn't matter if these creatures turn out to be fake or real, these are just never good additions to the series.

    3.5 starsThis one made me snicker a bit with the vampire references. I like how it's a joke but at the same time with the existence of sensitives and the different advanced technologies and "beauty" sculpting services they have in this future world it's also not as far of a reach. Sure, actual vampirism isn't happening, but you can get that much closer to being like one. But for me, it made this bad guy a joke. Even with references to the sociopath Eve and Roarke see in him; the connections to her past and her dad - he's just a joke. A dangerous joke, but not someone I ever really saw as a real threat to Eve. As always I enjoyed the relationships and characters - Peabody was especially great. Her "new-ager" was showing a bit in her reactions to the "vampire." Looking forward to reading more soon!

    I am just not a big fan of the novellas that JD Robb writes for the In Death series. There is too much of a paranormal feel in the stories that does not exist in the full length versions. In the novels, the only the fact that they are set in the future make them fantasy or science fiction. In the novellas, Eve chases ghosts, spirits, witches, or in this case a vampire. With the down to earth Eve, it just doesn't always make a good fit.With that aside, I still love the series and I have yet to give a book in the series a low star count. I just keep reading, re-reading, re-reading.......... I may never stop. LOL

    Oh, this was so much fun! is the Dark prince a vampire or not? What does Roarke believe in? It was a very cute, short story, and I did enjoy paranormal references. It made me think of Buffy. *grins* Recommended.* * *Ха! Посмеялась я с этой повести. Вампир ли Тёмный Принц или он просто притворяется? Во что верит Роарк, который беспокоится о безопасности своей жены? Эта была хорошая, свеженькая и прикольная повесть с паранормальными оттенками, что заставили меня вспомнить Баффи. *смеясь* Рекомендую.

    This installment wasn't that great. It was a good Halloween story focusing on vampires, but it wasn't that realistic. It also skimped on a lot of the police procedure and the connections between the characters. I did find the underground of New York City rather interesting, but there wasn't much else to recommend this story, as I found it largely skippable.

    A fourth-generation rich, club-hopping socialite is found dead in her own bed with the only sign of trauma two puncture wounds in her neck. Cause of death: exsanguination.The woman has recently hooked up with a mysterious man, no one has seen, no one knows... Except for the fact she called him her "Dark Prince".Lieutenant Eve Dallas is a pragmatist; she doesn't believe in the occult or the paranormal. She knows Tiara Kent wasn't killed by a vampire; a human did her in, and Eve has her suspect. He might not be a monster of legend, but he is a monster; she recognizes it in him...Now she just needs enough-ha-nails to hammer into his coffin.This story was short and quick, yet it still packed quite a punch. It had enough sprinkling of potential paranormal elements to keep the characters (and reader) guessing, even despite everyday human logic.The killer was known almost from the start, so there wasn't much investigation or procedural going on, but the pacing held strong, the plot was tight and intense, the story engrossing and slightly creepy.Great story.

    What strikes me as odd about Robb's short stories/novellas, is that they are all self contained mysteries. I can't help but wonder why, 1.) These aren't full length novels, or 2.) why all of her stories aren't this length.I don't know, maybe it's just me or my mood but this just struck me as odd when I finished this book. It feels like an Eve Dallas mystery, it reads like an Eve Dallas mystery, and yet it's so much shorter than the novels.The only thing I can say about this story is that when I finished, I was ever so slightly disappointed that it wasn't a full length novel.

    I read this as a double book combined with Haunted in Death. Both are novellas with plots that revolve around the supernatural. I thought at the time that the was one novella and a full length story, and it a shame that this wasn't the case because Eternity in Death was an enjoyable book and I would have been interested in the story being expanding with more people being taken in by the wannabe vampire.

    Eternity in Death by J.D.Robb is a short novella in the In Death series, labelled as book 25.5. This time Eve is after a vampire type killer after a socialite is killed in what appears to be a vampire attack. A typical In Death book, fast paced with plenty of action with most of the usual characters making an appearance.

    I probably always rate these books higher than they strictly deserve because I enjoy them so much. This was really good. Good plot, great character development, surprises and new glimpses into Eve's world and the time it is set in. If you like these books you'll like this one.

    a rich socialite is bitten and drained of her blood. when word gets out that there's a vampire in town Eve decides to set the record straight. I love the playfulness of this book, I just wish we had more of an ending. I would like to know how they finally broke him.
