NYPD Detective Alec MacAidan has always been good with weird. After all, his life has been a string of the unexplainable. But when an injured man gives him cryptic clues, then turns to dust in front of him, Alec's view on weird is changed forever.
Cronin, a vampire Elder, has spent the last thousand years waiting for Alec. He'd been told his fated one would be a man wielding a shield, but he didn't expect him to be human, and he certainly didn't expect that shield to be a police badge.
Both men, strong-willed and stubborn, are still learning how to cope with the push and pull of being fated, when fate throws them another curveball.
Rumors have spread quickly of turmoil in Egypt. Covens are fleeing with news of a vampire who has a talent like no other, hell-bent on unleashing the wrath of Death.
Alec and Cronin are thrown into a world of weird Alec cannot imagine. What he learned in school of ancient pharaohs and Egyptian gods was far from the truth. Instead, he finds out firsthand that history isn't always what it seems.
N.R. Walker writing vampires? I LOVED her series Red Dirt Heart so when I saw she was writing a vampire book I jumped on it. She is one of my favorite M/M authors.
Cronin's Key started off fast-paced and never slowed down for me. The twist and turns of the story kept me glued to my Kindle. Cronin, an elder vampire, has been waiting for years for his true mate and finding out that his mate is a human was a small shock. Being a detective is what Alec loves doing, his whole life he has had weird things happen to him and around him so when a man just appears in front of him out of thin air he is not as shocked as most people would be. The pull of their souls together is something they both feel so Alec knows this strange man will not hurt him.
Let me tell you the book only gets better from the first time Cronin and Alec meet. I really enjoyed it from beginning to end.
