I started reading the second book immediately, because I had to know what happens, and I loved it as much as the first one, although it made me feel completely different emotions than the first book. Amazing. I cannot remember last time reading series in which the books were reflecting the main character more than the author’s personal style. So well done!
This book starts with an unexpected twist, and as I mentioned above, it carries a different tone and atmosphere. It is much faster paced and f

The author once again did a fantastic job bringing in new and refreshing ideas to a vampire story. I loved Sarah and her strong willed, yet stubborn personality. Much different than Emilie. Great twists and unexpected turns that will keep you engaged from the start.

Well that sure didn’t go as I expected. It is an excellent book, I just wasn’t sure what to expect after reading the first book in the series. I think I was a little prejudice against Sarah but it didn’t take me long to come around and see that you just never should make snap decisions about anyone.
Anyway I really did enjoy this book a lot and would recommend it to all others.

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT for CRIMSON and SCARLET

This is the second book by T.L. Christanson that I have had the privilege to read. The plus is that this is the second of her series and it was AMAZING!!
This book started right after Crimson ended once Emelie was infected by the Vampire Virus and Owen had been changed.
We begin with Sarah who is Owens ex wife and she is still suffering from Blood Lust. We get to know who Sarah is and why she had to leave Owen and their children.
We are also introduce

If you like vampires who are more than just blood suckers, then you will definitely enjoy this second book in Shades of Red series by TL Christianson which was a super entertaining, yet dark story, that continued the search for a cure to a deadly vampire disease, as well as Sarah's overwhelming attempt to reign in her blood lust so she can see her children up close and in person, after being apart from them for years. It is also a story of a quietly developing love between two of the characters, ...more

I can not rave enough about this book. I started reading it and literally could not put it down. Finally, at 2 in the morning, I forced myself to get some sleep and then immediately began reading again the next day between classes! Sarah is totally my hero! She's strong but feminine. Her relationship with her ex-husband and her estranged kids added this tender and deep element to what is basically a steamy romance combined with continuous action. Karsten- aka - the Viking is smoking hot! I total ...more

Sarah is Owen's ex wife and she is still suffering from bloodlust. We also find out why she had to leave Owen and their children. Karsten is assigned Sarah to teach her how to deal with her bloodlust. Loved this book I can't wait to read the next in the series!

This is the second book in the Shades of Red: Moroi Society series and it is really good! It gives more background information on Dr. Sarah Shepard. We also meet Karsten Ingvar, an elite Danish soldier who specializes in taming new vampires and has been assigned to help her. You will have mixed emotions when reading this book, but it is a must-read.

I loved this book just as much is if not more then the first. I was drawn in right away and the story wouldn't let me go even after I had finished. I will be honest sometimes I have a hard time getting in to Vampire reads, but this author knows how to draw you in and keep you there. I want to be just like Dr. Sarah Sephard when I decide to grow up. Everyone needs to go get this book, I promise you will not be sorry ...more

This book had me on the edge of my seat right until the last page! Holy crap what a ride! I'm hanging out for book 3!
Sarah's story wasn't what I expected at all, and I love how Christianson dealt with all of her issues and angst. Custody and parenting are such sensitive things and I cried several times in this book. I just loved it!

Scarlet: Taming The Thirst

I am not typically a big fan of vampire books, but this one I loved. Possibly because all of the characters seemed so human. I did not read the first in the series, although I'm sure reading it would have helped me understand some of the characters more, and I do plan on getting it and reading it. Dr. Sarah Shepherd is a Moroi, but was turned after the birth of her second child. Sadly her turning made her crave blood - even from her own children, so she has been estrang

Blood Lust

This not my normal genre but I did find I enjoyed this book. I’m going to have to backtrack and read the first book but had no problem reading this one as a stand-alone. This book has a Dr, Sarah, who is trying to find a cure for a virus that is killing vampires (yes she’s a vampire). She was turned voluntarily after extreme blood loss after her youngest child was born. She had to leave her children after she started feeding off that child (yeah, gross). She moved across the country an

Trying to find a cure for Emilie brings Owens Ex wife Dr. Sarah Edwards back to their home. For Sarah this brings a lot of mixed emotions. She hasn’t been able to see her children since the birth of her youngest child, due to her blood lust of being turned. But she is also a very important scientist who’s help is greatly needed in finding a vaccine to cure the vampires of their deadly disease. She is not sent alone however but sent with a very old vampire for her protection as well as helping he ...more

Scarlet is the second book in Shades of Red series and continues right where Crimson left off. Sarah is Owen's ex wife and a vampire/moroi. She is still struggling with blood lust and left her kids for their safety. Karsten is a viking and is assigned to help Sarah deal with her blood lust. He is also her bodyguard wherever she goes. This one takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride from sadness, anger and laughing out loud. ...more

Scarlet

Fitting and seamless continuation of Crimson. It was intriguing and entertaining with a hint of mystery. I would definitely recommend to others. Mrs. Christianson has well developed characters that are relatable and engaging as humans or Moroi leaving you with just enough questions to drive the series. Cant wait to dig into the next one!!

It was a little strange reading a vampire book They were so different than the typical vampire. They seem so humanized that sometimes I forgot they were super natural. That being said it been a little different was cool. The kids thing made me sad. I couldn’t imagine!
