Crossed (Void City #3)
In spite of his continuing hot-blooded affair with his soon-to-be sister-in-law Rachel, Eric’s plan is simple: Give his vampire girlfriend Tabitha the fancy wedding she’s always wanted, then head off to Paris for their honeymoon in the hopes of tracking down his sire, the Empress vampire Lisette.

Eric is back and cruder than ever in J.F Lewis’s epically awesome ‘Void City’ series.
A lot happened in the second book ‘Revamped’. Eric and his Mouser, Talbot, defeated a demon and incurred the wrath of Hell.

The pace was good, the characters spot on and we found out somethings we didn't know about Talbot and about Greta.
Highly recommend this book.
I think I will re-read this when I am more in the mood for this style of book.
