The strength of Sloane's heart is about to be put to the ultimate test. After the Eclipse - the night vampires began openly slaughtering human victims - everything changed. Out of fear, the government salvaged what remained of the human population and enclosed them in massive, security-laden cities called White Sectors, while marking the vampire infested territory as Red Sectors.When seventeen-year-old Sloane McAllister's twin brother disappears, she seems to be the only one who thinks he isn't dead, and vows to stop at nothing to find him. Gathering her courage, she braves the Red Sector to search for clues to his whereabouts. By chance, she encounters Aden, a handsome, charismatic vampire with a hidden agenda. He turns Sloane against her will, and whisks her away to his underground city. Enemies quickly become friends as Sloane struggles against her attraction to Aden, and resists her growing loyalties to the creatures that ruined her life. But the vampires themselves are the least of her problems. The city is harboring a devastating secret, one that could change the tide of the war and threaten to destroy everything Sloane has come to believe in.Books by Krystle JonesTHE RED SECTOR CHRONICLES1.

I received this book to read and review from the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Fanatics! I have to say this book surprised me. I went in expecting nothing and then had a lot of fun reading it. Its not a short book but I finished it in a few hours because it kept me hooked. Aside from a few spelling mistakes-which really put me off books- and a few other things, I liked the story a lot. Sloane is a kick-ass character and I enjoyed reading about her. What I missed was the lack of details of on the side characters. We only realized they were in the story when they were included in a scene to interact with Sloane. I loved the concept of a world populated by people who weren't quite human, yet not vampire. The other thing that bugged me was who Nero turned out to be. I don't know why I was disappointed with his identity, maybe I expected it to be Orion. But I loved the little tid bit about Sloane's dad having been of the vampire bloodline. This was also another place where I realized that we were told next to nothing about him. It was just thrust upon us in the last pages or so that he had rage issues. I was like huh? When did THAT happen? Lets see what the sequel brings with it. ( )

The Scarlet Dagger is a fun dystopian young-adult paranormal romance...perfect for a quick easy read. The story is set in what I believe to be the near future after an apocalyptic event that divides the world into two sectors (vampire and human). The heroine of the book is a 17 year old girl and there is quite a bit of action with her kicking some serious butt. There is also the beginnings of a nice romance (this is the first of a series so I imagine, we'll be seeing the romance develop over time)

I really enjoyed the first 3/4 of the book and liked the author's new spin on vampires and human/vampire relations with regards to fear and prejudice but I was disappointed with the final 1/4 of the book. It seemed to me that it was wrapped up too quickly, with too many details left out, making it seem disjointed and almost like a completely different book. Now, that being said, I would still recommend The Scarlet Dagger because the first 3/4 of the book is worth a read. I'll definitely be giving the second book in the series a try with the hope that the author is able to get back to the writing of the middle portion of this book and will spend more time with the story rather than trying to cram the last chapter or two full of revelations and high action.

I gave the book four stars but because I was so disappointed in the ending. I do foresee good things in the future from this author, though.

The Scarlet Dagger (The Red Sector Chronicles #1) by Krystle Jones

This is the first book I’ve read by Krystle Jones, her writing style was easy to read and she told us a good story, I really liked this book and I can see a lot of potential for this series. The descriptions were good and not overly done, good plot, I definitely will be looking forward to reading Dark Horizons book 2.

So we are introduced to 17 year old Sloane McAllister, vampire slayer. She is strong, independent and makes a great heroine, Sloane goal is to find her twin brother Owen who was taken by the vampires and she is unsure if he is dead or alive. Three years ago the world changed dramatically when the Eclipse occurred and the vampires tried to slaughter the human race. This lead to the remaining human living is the White Sector and Vampires living in the Red Sector.

Sloan has trained hard and decides she is going to enter the Red Sector with a weapon called the scarlet dagger which is deadly to the vampires. The guilt she feels deep inside will not allow her to give up hoping that she will find Owen alive.

Shortly after entering the red sector she is attacked and turned into a vampire by Aiden, you just know he is one of the main characters in this book, he is handsome, strong and Sloane of course is very attracted to him. But can she get past the fact that he destroyed her life and has turned her into the monsters she was meant to kill. She has always believed the vampires were monsters, blood thirsty and is she is having a hard time coming to terms with being a vampire. She still wants to get home even though she knows they may want to kill her. She decides to play along with them and get them to trust her knowing inside she is going to leave. She begins to make friendships and starts to fall in love with Aiden.

This novel has romance, drama, friendship and of course the vampires so who wouldn’t love to read Krystle’s book, I for one really enjoyed it. The best part is the villain and I won’t say anymore on that just go read the book.

I want to thank Krystle Jones for giving the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy Fanatics group the opportunity to read and review your book. It is great that an author gives her hard work away for free for us readers to review. So thank you for the opportunity to read your hard work.

I would recommend this book to all my friends who enjoy reading YA PNR/UF.

I enjoyed reading this book, there were some original parts in it and it was pretty fast paced; however, it does not leave me dying to read the next one.
With some of the twists I feel at the end it was more about the twists than the characters and I really didn't care enough for the next one.

On the other hand, I am sure some may feel differently and it was well written enough I would definitely read this and try it, if you like YA and paranormal. This is good solid book and worth checking out if you like this genre.

So for me while I didn't love it enough to buy the continuation, I have over a 100 books in my tbr pile and they have to be high 4's or 5's for me to add to the pile.

I was given a copy of this novel from the author for any honest review!

WOW! The overall composition of this novel was Jedi mind trickery at its finest! There is no way I could have guessed all the events as they played out in this dystopian, urban fantasy thriller.

This novel takes us into a world riddled with a devastating discovery of vampires. Sloane lost her twin Orion and friend Rook the day the vampires revealed themselves in the most horrid manner. Three years later, unable to cope with the mystery of her brother's death, she ventures back to the forbidden sector that was once her family's home. It is there, she meets Aden, and her life is taken on a whirlwind of an adventure!

Sloane wasn't the most kick ass heroine, I've ever met but she was definitely someone to be reckoned with. Here's my all time favorite scene:

"I raced for the kitchen, careening into the cabinets as I flung open the knife drawer. Footsteps thundered toward me. Whirling around, I hurled one knife after the other as the men came through the doorway. Blades embedded themselves in their chests and foreheads, spraying blood along the wall. When I ran out of knives, I grabbed the biggest fork I could find and launched myself at the final man blocking my way. When he first saw the fork, he laughed-

Right before I shoved it into his open mouth, so hard the prongs dug into the back of his skull."

I was like a washed out high school quarterback watching the pros slam a touchdown at the Super Bowl on Thanksgiving when I read that scene. Like a proud papa bear, I leaped up so quickly, I almost broke my Nook! THAT'S WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT! YEAH!

*Clearing my throat* *brushing the nonexistent lint from my lapel*

Pardon my outburst! This story almost read like a mystery novel, but like I said before, there was no way I could have guess all the events that took place.

There's

--> Betrayal,

--> Romance,

--> Secrets, &

--> Assassination plots.

Oh and to just leave your heart in your throat, we're left on a cliff hanger! The next installment of The Red Sector Chronicles is definitely on my radar! ( )
