OMG Ian!!!!!!!

It's Mother Fuckin' Ian!!!!!!

I have been waiting so long for my bad boy Ian to get his books and I can't fuckin' wait to get my hands on this book!!!! It's gonna be so good!

Totally Fangirling!

Did it ever happen to you that you feared a book would go wrong in one way, but it went wrong in a completely different one?

I adore Ian; I always did, he was my favourite character. Thought that the way he was treated by his friends was uncalled for. Come on, they only had to ask, and he stood by them. But no, they stilled douted him.

If you read the Night Huntress series, you will probably like this book because it stars Ian, the funniest bad-boy vamp in the series.

Veritas, a law guardian of vampires is looking to kill a demon who has a claim on Ian, so she wants to use him as bait. They are such an unlikely pair that they have to get fake vampire-married just to explain why they are hanging out together. But you know how fake marriages go in book-world...

I feel a Series re-read coming soon!!

I don't read a ton of paranormal romance anymore, but when it comes to Jeaniene Frost, I just can't help myself. Fans of the Night Huntress, Night Huntress World, and Night Prince series have long requested a story devoted to fan favorite: Ian, and Frost didn't disappoint with Shades of Wicked. This novel is the first installment in her new Night Rebel series which Frost has announced will consist of “at least two books, possibly three”. In Shades of Wicked, vampire Ian is paired with Veritas, l ...more

I loved this book! I have to tell you that I went into this book with pretty high expectations. How could I not?! I have enjoyed the heck out of the books in the Night Huntress world and Ian is an awesome character. I knew that this would be a great book and I am happy to report that I was right. Once I started reading this book, I didn't want to put it down. It was really a lot of fun to be back in this world for just a bit.

Ian is... Ian 😏 I'm glad he didn't disappoint, he's as crazy and funny as ever.
Veritas, on the other hand, fell a bit flat in my opinion. She is badass, but that is the only thing I liked about her. There was nothing else interesting about her character. I knew the author would go for a badass female to pair with Ian, but I would have preferred if she simply paired him with a human instead.

I think that can be contributed to the fact that I feel like I've personally outgrown the whole paranorma

Did I really think I wasn’t going to love Ian’s book? No, so it’s not surprising that I’m giving Shades of Wicked 5 fat stars. I honestly wasn’t sure how JF was going to make the world’s greatest manwhore fall for one woman and one woman only, but she did it in such an impressive way. This isn’t an instalove story but rather a slow burn romance that was so worth the wait. But now I’m dying over the ending and need book 2 stat!

4 Naughty Vamp Stars!

Ian has fascinated me since he was introduced to us in the Night Huntress series, like Vlad he’s another favorite JF character, I’m beyond thrilled we’re finally getting his trilogy. Ian’s a degenerate snarky pervert who’s a scoundrel yet he’s unwavering loyal to those he loves and considers family as proven the last time we seen him in Vlad’s forth and final Night Prince book Into the Fire. His sacrifice truly opened my eyes to the depths of Ian’s loyalty and honor.

4+ "Not so Opposites Attract" Stars!

I loved this! Ian and Veritas work very well together. There was a lot of actions and a lot of action. We get to see Kat and Bones, Spade and Manchares (sp?). Even my main man Vlad makes an appearance. The plot is very good. Overall, super entertaining. I'm very happy to back in this world. Only problem, there is a cliffhanger. 🤨 And the next book isn't out until Summer 2019. 😠 As my friend Santy says, "Death to cliffhangers!"

Overall though, I liked it a lot.

I received this book for free from Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

To say this was one of my most anticipated reads of the year is an understatement.  Fans of the Night Huntress series have been waiting for Ian to get his HEA for many years!  And lets just say the wait was worth it!  SHADES OF WICKED was everything I wanted Ian's book to be and I am so excited that there's more to come.

Patricia’s Book Summaries
You just knew that Ian and Veritas were going to get together because of what happened in Into the FIre. I can't wait to see them get together! Their backgrounds are also going to be so juicy. What made Ian into the playboy we know and love, and what are Vertitas' many secrets??? Also, what position will Ian be in when Veritas first meets him?? Sooo many questions, sooo much time before we can get the answers. Gahh. I need this book today, please!

It's been a long time since I picked a Jeaniene Frost book. I adored the Night Huntress series and have read most of the other books set in this world (I still need to read the two latest Night Prince novels). To be honest I don't know why I never read those two. Other shinier books grabbed my attention but I fully plan on remedying that in the next few weeks. But when I saw that she's writing a Ian book I just couldn't resist. Add in the brilliant quotes shared on Twitter and by the time I got ...more

Let me begin by saying that the expectations were high for this book. I'm sure I'm not the only fan who's been waiting for years for Ian's book but it was probably trickier for the author with this book because how do you make a shameful scoundrel with a sleazy reputation and who's been known as arrogant and carefree into hero's material, but without denaturing the wacky side we love so much ? I think that was the biggest challenge for Jeaniene Frost and in my opinion, she succeed. We see sid

SHADES OF WICKED has been on my radar since I first read the excerpt on Jeaniene Frost's website. I, like many other readers of the Night Huntress series, was eager for Ian's book, and it definitely lived up to my expectations.SHADES OF WICKED has all of Frost's trademarks: amazing chemistry between hero and heroine, fun banter, great action scenes and a bad guy who is so easy to hate.

In that regard, SHADES OF WICKED is pretty similar to many of Frost'

Eu não esperava ter gostado tanto desse livro!
Primeiramente, quando eu terminei de ler Night Prince, eu estava um tanto indiferente ao livro do Ian, não gostei da participação dele nos livros de Vlad e Leila, achava Veritas uma personagem irrelevante e não gostava do fato de que ela era descrita como uma garotinha. Na minha mente, eu já imaginava ela como a Kirsten Dunst em Entrevista com o Vampiro, então eu estava tipo:

He is every shade of Wicked – an unrepentant and shameless master vampire, but Ian may have just met his match in this explosive, heart pounding novel. Shades of Wicked is the first in the new Night Rebel series which takes place in the Night Huntress Universe and like all the others fabulous books in this universe, the author paints vivid imagery in her well-developed vampire world. Ian has fascinated readers from the very first book he appeared in as he shamelessly dared readers to overlook hi ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Shades of Wicked by Jeaniene Frost is the first book in the Night Rebel series. This is the story of Veritas and Ian. I am almost a shamed to say I have never read a book by Ms. Frost before...which has been my loss. This book kept me reading until the end of this book. I found it exciting and enjoyed Veritas and Ian story line. I do hope the next book that continues their story and this exciting read comes out fast...I need it!

3.5 Stars

Ian was more than a swaggering hedonist in this novel. Jeanniene Frost added an interesting layer. Veritas was well-rounded, but her motivation for seeking a certain demon lacked something. Or maybe I should just go with the flow and believe her passion for vengeance burned bright for thousands of years. It was obvious how her past shaped her character but there seemed to be emotional distance despite being told Veritas feelings by the author.

Veritas and Ian’s relationship took unexpec
Na túto knihu som čakala aspoň takých sedem rokov (myslím, že to bolo po prečítaní šiestej časti Night Huntress série, kedy som si Iana fakt zamilovala), ale zároveň som sa jej obávala. Spin-off príbehy NH série ma nikdy príliš nenalákali (ani Spade, ani Mencheres a ani Vlad, aj keď ten bol z nich asi najzaujímavejší, vo mne neprebudili silné emócie). A tá jedna kniha, ktorú som prečítala, ma vôbec neohromila. V Ianovi som videla potenciál príbehu, ktorý ma zaujme. No zároveň som sa bála, že ma ...more

Jeaniene Frost gave us an Ian book. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. Starting today you can spend 384 pages discovering what makes Ian tick. Verbal sparring? Obviously. Physical sparring? That too. A badass woman seeing through his bullshit? Oh, yes.

I expect many readers of the Night Huntress series will pick up Shades of Wicked for Ian. They want to see that pierced snark master in action in every sense of the word, but I have to tell you guys: You’re

“Even if we both survive, I won't enforce my claim on you," I said desperately. "In fact, the first thing I'll do is drop you back at that bordello in Poland and order you a new carnival orgy, promise!" Then I threw up, spraying a stream of crimson all over him as I lost my fight against the nausea.

"See?" I managed when I finished puking. Vow sealed with a blood oath."

He looked down at himself in disgust. "This is everything I knew marriage would be.
“I saw you then and felt nothing. Saw you months later during the ghoul uprising and felt nothing then, too ... until I watched you tear through a group of ghouls 'til they were no more than blood in the wind. Made me so hard, I almost tripped over my cock on my way to kill the ghoul in front of me."

"Romantic," I said in an acerbic tone, but a fluttering had started inside that I was having a difficult time controlling.

A quick grin. "Indeed. Felt nothing when you rudely interrupted my orgy, either, except rage when I recognized you as the Guardian who'd been at Katie's supposed execution. Then we fought ... and I felt the same thing I'd felt when I watched you tear through those ghouls years before."

"Something long and hard?" I supplied, adding, "I remember it hitting my foot when I was trying to hold you down."

"Not that, though that, too," he said with another unrepentant grin. Then it faded as he said, "I felt that you were mine.”
