Infernal is the latest in Kate Hill’s sexy and shocking Ancient Blood series. Dulcie is
married to the perfect husband, Matthew, and living a wonderful life as a vampire. Her
world is horrifically changed when an evil vampire interferes with their lives and forces
Matthew to take drastic measures. It is her unconditional love for Matthew that gives
their marriage strength during these difficult times.
Matthew has tried to control his animal side for years, but he can only truly be himself
with his beloved wife Dulcie. As a hematologist, he works relentlessly at helping
vampires and is dedicated to his people. His life becomes torn apart when he exposes
an evil vampire hurting a child vampire. When he goes to the vampire “network”, they
decide against Matthew, and he then rescues the child. The only way to protect his wife,
brother, and human family is to hide in a scary underworld of vampires and wolves.
Infernal exposes readers to the harshness of preternatural life and demonstrates that
petty politics are everywhere, including the vampire network. Connecting many parts of
her previous books, Infernal progresses smooth and spooky while Matthew moves
further away from his yuppie doctor lifestyle to life as an outcast. The unique characters
from earlier in the series, including the aggravating but sexy Vincent, are present along
with a few new ones.
I love being shocked by Ms Hill’s work. Infernal continues to make Ancient Blood an
excellent series with strong action, incredibly hot sex, and wonderful characters. Infernal
is a stand alone book, with enough references to the series to avoid confusion, but does
not read like a Ancient Blood reference book. This is definitely an excellent read and a
book I am telling my friends about. The next book in the series is planned to be God of
the Grim and I can barely wait.
