No memory. No mind. No mercy.
Kiara Blackwood has a few problems.
She’s older than she looks – by several centuries. She can’t remember who she is. She doesn’t know why she’s the target of Oleander, an immortal serial killer, or why she’s held prisoner by the undead, or where to find the Midnight Poison, the one thing that could grant her freedom. And best of all, her psych meds have stopped working, because, oh yeah, she’s borderline insane.
Well, maybe not so borderline.
When Oleander’s killing spree threatens to rip the supernatural world apart, Kiara has no choice but to hunt him down. Forced to rely on a dashing vampire with questionable motives, she plunges into a world of lies, betrayal, deadly deceptions, and secrets that could tear what’s left of her mind to shreds. And because that’s such a piece of cake, while she’s at it, she might as well search for the Midnight Poison, that legendary potion she can’t remember creating, let alone hiding. Well…
Crazy or not, here she comes.
To all our amazing fans, we just wanted to mention that Midnight Poison has a bit more language and sexuality than the Divinicus Nex Chronicles, but other than that, you can expect the same type of exciting roller-coaster ride of action, suspense, and fun!
Be brave. Try some Midnight Poison. Lethal to the last drop.

This was definitely different from what I’m used to reading from the authors. Where there was dialogue and light-heartedness in their Divinicus Nex Chronicles, this new saga of Paranormal Poisons takes on a much darker tone. Lead by Kiara Blackwood and her guardian, Leontes, we’re taken into a world where murder seems to be the number one thing at the moment. People are being slaughtered, an infamous serial killer is back, and Kiara’s in trouble. Again. The book opened up to one of the many slaughters going on right now. With Leontes investigating it with other vampires, it doesn’t take long before we’re with Kiara, our protagonist and current target of the killer, Oleander. She hides from the trespasser in her room and later follows him. And there, our story begins.
I’m not a big fan of a lot of action scenes because I use the dialogue to build up the stories and world for me. While I’d find myself thinking ‘Oh, another scene’, the description itself was intense and entertaining enough to not put it down. Then again, I’m a total visual reader and don’t like the sight of blood, so you can imagine the experience I had with this. lol. The characters were interesting, and if I had to choose a favorite, it’d be Bane, only because he seems the most complex, if not just totally hot. A few of the characters gave me different impressions that changed my mood about as quickly as the full moon, but I’m taking that as a personal opinion. I’ll read this again to see if anything changes for me.
I love how dark the humor is. I wasn’t sure if they’d be able to bring the funnies that I fell hard for in DNC but if anything, they made it better since this is where I swing more toward. I died, especially when it came to some of the scenes that you wouldn’t even think had humor in it. It’s one of my favorite things about this book, if not the plot twists or Leontes. The story line was pretty fun because I like when the settings are changing and not just stuck in one place. It lagged a little for me when it came to what felt like a detour for me, and again, I wanted to strangle a certain character for doing what they did, but in the end, it worked out.
The ending totally killed me and I really need the next book. It’s like the Waiting World but 24/7 with the minute breaks of some bumps and grinds. Kidding. Seriously though, the book is definitely hotter, with the feel good vibes that match the intensity of the gritty. So in short words: intense, darkly hilarious and surprising. Any book that makes me laugh out loud and cry for a character who’s reached their bottom low is a book worth reading.
