The Silver Dagger by Alistair Cross

Brother Against Brother
Life in Crimson Cove has been good to the Colter Brothers since Gretchen VanTreese was staked and her horde of vampires scattered. Brooks is once again human, and Cade, the rare Sire Gretchen had determined to take as her mate, is in love. Then the unthinkable happens: Gretchen rises from the grave, and the brothers are torn apart, their lives - and the peace between them - shattered.

A Trail of Blood
When Cade comes into possession of an ancient ceremonial dagger he awakens a power so deadly it defies comprehension. Meanwhile, a serial killer is stalking the little mountain town, leaving a trail of blood that leads to a truth Sheriff Ethan Hunter doesn’t want to face. And unknown to either of them, Gretchen is preparing to reopen her notorious nightclub, The Crimson Corset - and building an army to destroy her enemies and reclaim Cade Colter as her own.

A New Breed of Evil
The streets are no longer safe, nor are the forested paths, for a new and unknowable evil has come to Crimson Cove and everyone - vampire and human alike - must come together in order to survive.

Once again Alistair Cross has left me speechless and full of excitement. The Silver Dagger was everything I had hoped it would be. I was worried I would forget some of the more important parts of the storyline since it had been a while since I read the first book, but it’s written in a way that easily reminds the reader of key points along the way. His characters have me dying inside for them, or wanting to dispose of them myself. They are like family to me. Some I adore beyond reason, and others I love to hate.


I adore this series and I have yet to be disappointed by anything Cross has written. His vampires aren’t the lovey or romantic kind you see so often. I love that his vampires are violent and brutal and while they are traditionally sexy, there’s no swooning involved.


Ultimately, this is another great addition to Cross’s already amazing catalog of books. If you haven’t read any of his work yet, you should definitely get on that because he is one of my all-time favorite authors.
