"Readers of early Laurell K. Hamilton, Charlaine Harris, and the best thrillers out there should try Liu now."
-Publishers Weekly

"Anyone who loves my work should love [Lui's]."
-Christina Feehan

Award-winning, New York Times bestselling author Marjorie M. Liu's magnificent Dirk and Steele novels are the gold standard of paranormal romance fiction. Stepping briefly away from her unique detective agency of shapeshifters, psychics, and extraordinary beings, Lui enters the dangerous shadows of Crimson City with A Taste of Crimson. Set in a dark and twisted version of Los Angeles-a "City of Angels" from which the angels have long since fled-A Taste of Crimson has a beautiful creature of the night teaming up with an enemy, a slayer, to get to the root of an impending catastrophe that threatens to shatter a tentative peace between humans, vampires and werewolves. A breathtaking blend of sensuous romance with superior urban fantasy in the bestselling vein of Jeaniene Frost and Nalini Singh, A Taste of Crimson is a satisfying feast for every paranormal fan. Perhaps Booklist put it best: "If you have yet to add Liu to your must-read list, you're doing yourself a disservice."
