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.

Lot of detail and thought was put into this storyline. Very creative with the blending of ancient civilizations and plausible alternate realities for a paranormal story. It moved at a pace that kept me turning pages and was developed all the way to the end while still making the reader want more. My only negative point was that so much attention went into the storyline that the personal relationship between the two main characters almost felt secondary in a sense. I was really able to sense the world the author was describing. The detail from running through wet NY streets to the rancid stench of rotting revived vampires in the tombs of Egypt was well written. Again Excellent. The four main characters were all unique and we were able to identify their personalities. We were given good backstory on the two main characters and the connection between them all was tangible. Easy to read. Good pace. Appropriate language. Loved the writers effort to include Galiec. I know from experience that It’s not an easy language to incoroporate and translate.

Cronin's Key is another world. Vampires and heroes I was just so lost in the narrative and the character, that I had to read in one sitting. A wonderful story.
