    1. I received this book to review from the R2R (Read 2 Review) program. Thank you for the book and the chance to read it.I devoured this book in a few short hours. It was about 180ish pages on the Nook, and I did enjoy it. This was a dystopian about a teenage girl named Sloane. In the beginning she starts out in the white sector, a place where she is safe. She soon travels to the red sector which is full of vampires to look for her brother who is presumed dead.The author's world building is honestl [...]

RecommendYesBook Boyfriend: AdenSUMMARY (50 words or less)I am upset I waited so long to read this one. What an interesting well written story. So captivating I stayed up until 1 am to finish it. A main issue is trust. The author does a great job of making you second guess yourself as who is trustworthy. To s [...]

    3. 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 [...]

    4. This was a very entertaining young adult read. I was surprised and thoroughly enjoyed it!Sloan is a 17 year old vampire hunter who ventures out of the safety of the “white sector” to the vampire infested “red sector” to look for her missing twin brother. She meets Aden a young handsome vampire and is shocked because she has only seen the rogue vampires who are little more than animals. Aden turns her against her will and Sloan has to deal with her feelings towards vampires, her previous [...]

    5. Just saw a great review for this and it caught my eye, and since I'm procrastinating in the writing department, I bought it. Now reading

    6. 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 t [...]

    7. I would simply said "I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT! I LOVE IT!"I love this book has a bit of everything, action, vampires, suspense, unexpected things, secrets, life lessons, romance, a heroine with a good personality-beautiful-kick-ass girl, a charming gentleman hero-sexy-hot-presumptuous-rough!!!The writer was showcased with the plot, I really liked quite interesting. She combine some of the Apocalypse (the red moon, end of the world for humans),the emergence of a kind of-resident-evil-virus [...]

    8. 3.5 StarsThe plot of this book was unique and refreshing. Two of my favourite things --- a dystopian setting and vampires! Sloane, our main character was a human living in the safety of a protected community heads into the Red Sector in search of the brother she left behind 3 years before. She finds so much more then that. Aden a vampire in control of his mind and hunger finds Sloane looking for her brother and changes her. I wish Sloane would have been more hateful toward Aden. He made her into [...]

    9. What an EPIC book!! I just love a book that is action packed – I’m talking about sitting on the edge of your seat biting your nails type. The characters are freaking awesome and captivated my attention from the beginning. Sloane… um… wow just wow!! She is a warrior through and through, whether it’s physical or emotional. She is tactful and strong willed – you need to watch your back if you ever get on her bad side. Having said how amazingly kick ass she is, she is also soft hearted a [...]

    10. I was given an opportunity to Read and Review The Scarlet Dagger (The Red Sector Chronicles #1) by Krystal Jones. I am so glad I got that chance!What a fun and exciting read. The story starts out as Sloane McAllister, a 17 year old girl, goes on a mission to find her twin brother Orion. To do this she must enter a part of the city called the Red Sector. Three years before, there was an eclipse. It was the night that vampires openly assaulted the human population. It was a night that the whole ci [...]

    11. The story sucked me in the very moment I started reading it. The concept of the book was very original and refreshing; it was unlike anything I've ever read before. Krystle Jones created an extraordinary dystopian world full of vampires within those pages the book and I loved every single minute I spent exploring her make-believe world. Her vampires weren't like vampires; instead they could do typical-human-stuff like eat cheeseburgers and fries and slurp smoothies and stand in the sunlight and [...]

    12. Many thanks to the Read2Review program for giving me the occasion to read this novel!The Scarlet Dagger was a weird experience for me. It starts out as a post-apocalyptic urban fantasy – if I had to describe the atmosphere with a color it would have been indeed dark red (“scarlet”). But after a few chapters it turns into a kind of teenage drama and the aura of the book somehow changes to neon pink o_O Later the story gets back to the urban fantasy part and the mystery, but the major focus [...]

    13. Plot Style: Character DrivenNote: I was given this copy in the Read and Review program. Small Summary: There's an eclipse that has taken place and the world will never be safe again! Cities destroyed, earth in turmoil and chaos, vampires are terrorizing people all over the globe. A new government has formed, one to address the problems and difficulties of a new world. And that same government has created a deadly band of vampire hunters with a secret weapon unlike any forged for battling before. [...]

    14. Wow. I really liked this book, it was fast-paced, action-packed and 100% exciting. I actually thought I wouldn't like this book because I thought it was just another typical vampire novel. But I found myself entranced by the unique plot and Krystle Jones' style of writing. The book just leaves you wanting more.This book was set in a dystopia where vampirism was a virus. Humans had created safe zones to avoid becoming infected and vampires were killed on sight. But here's the good twist, not all [...]

    15. Fans of YA titles by Richelle Mead, Jennifer L. Armentrout, P. C. Cast, Rachel Caine, just to name a few, will be elated to read The Scarlet Dagger.Tragedy, action, hate, romance and humor, all rolled into one book. Start to finished, I enjoyed The Scarlet Dagger. Teaser: "I couldn’t imagine a worse fate than being turned, and suddenly this talking, seemingly sensible man before me became incredibly tragic. He would never age, a beauty queen’s wet dream. I couldn’t imagine being a teenager [...]

    16. (Source: I won a digital copy of this book. Thanks to Proserpine@ Proserpine craving books, and Krystal Jones!)Sloane lives in a dystopian Pittsburgh, where vampires live in the ‘red sector’ surrounding the city, and humans are kept safe inside high fences.When ‘the eclipse’ happened 3 years ago, and the vampires came out, Sloan’s brother Orion was taken, and Sloan is determined to find him.Stealing her best friend Leo’s scarlet dagger – a weapon made with scarlet steel that is har [...]

    17. The Scarlet Dagger is a fun dystopian young-adult paranormal romancerfect 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 r [...]

    18. I just loved this book, Krystle Jones plays with a world that is post-apocalyptic with a pre-dystopian vibe. Sloane McAllister has finally found the way to run away from safety and venture into the red sector where she hopes to find her missing brother.Even thought three years have passed Sloane still hopes that her twin brother is alive and well from that horrible Halloween night that change the world for ever.She has been training to fight vampires since that faithful day when vampires stopped [...]

    19. I wanted to like this story- the synopsis sounded like my kind of story- dystopian, futuristic, with a kick-ass heroine and a whirlwind adventure sure to entertain. And yet I kept finding myself being thrown out of the story somehow, thrust away and unable to melt into Sloane's tale. I wanted to ride along in her skin, experience her life while reading her story, but I kept feeling like everything was just a little too forced. There's no question that this author has a gripping knowledge of lan [...]

    20. *some spoilers*Okay, so the love interest turns our MC into a vampire, imprisons her, makes her a tool for a power-crazy freak then feels hurt when she tells him that she doesn't want him?!Really?REALLY?!JUST BC YOU'RE HANDSOME DOESN'T MEAN A GIRL SHOULD BE GRATEFUL YOU CHANGED HER, YOU DOUCHE!HE EVEN HAS THE NERVE TO TELL HER THAT SHE SHOULD BE GRATEFUL BECAUSE HE HAD EVEN LESS WHEN HE WAS TURNED!WHAT AN ASS!SHE DIDN'T WANT TO BE CHANGED!HOW COULD YOU DO SOMETHING TO SOMEONE'S BODY WITHOUT THEI [...]

    21. deleting reviews if you want to take a look at them you can do so on my blog, link on my profile

    22. My rating: <3 <3 <3 <3 <3Awesome!I've been a little stingy with reviews lately. I use to review several books a week, but I've been trying to bring them out on Tuesdays and Thursdays this month. Truthfully, I've been suffering a bit of burn out. I do a lot of stuff -- writing, reading, web design, singing and I needed a breather.But I have to totally ignore my schedule today, because I just finished The Scarlet Dagger and I simply cannot wait to tell you all how utterly, totally, [...]

    23. I was toying with how many stars to give this book. On finishing it, I immediately rated it four stars but then I contemplated giving it three, then thought maybe it should actually be three and a half but on final thoughts, I decided that in all honesty, this book simply deserves four stars. This book had me captivated from page one. It drew me into a dystopian world that was so well described and thought out throughout the entire story that there wasn’t ever a time when I was confused about [...]

    24. Oh my Goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood! This book is amazing! Why does it only have 600 ratings?! Like what?!I have read so many cliché vampire books in the past few years, it's past the point of being funny. So I'll admit that I was super-mega-ultra skeptical to pick up another one. But this is the real deal, guys. This book PERFECTION.Before I get into all this, let me just say that the mere mentioning of Pittsburgh made me love this author ten times more. Like YES. Nobody ever picks Pitts [...]

    25. The Scarlet Dagger (The Red Sector Chronicles #1) by Krystle JonesThis 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 gr [...]

    26. What can I say, i absolutely loved this book from beginning to end. It was a nice new storyline with an amazing twist at the end.It started off with Sloane, a human girl who is searching for her twin brother after he had gotten bitten by a vampire three years earlier. Instead of getting closer to finding him, she gets herself captured by a vampire, Aden, who takes her upon seeing the Mark of the Creator on her body. But Aden isn't like any vampire, he is human like aside from the fangs and cravi [...]

    27. I liked this book a lot more than i thought i was going to. Going into the book i thought it would be just another vampire/human romance book, but it really wasn't. I'm glad to say that it was so much better!I loved Sloane! She was a total kick-butt heroine. She stayed tough and strong throughout the whole book. She took everything that was thrown at her, and instead of becoming weaker, she became stronger. She wasn't a damsel in distress, she was independent. When she wanted to know something a [...]

    28. Three years ago the moon turned blood red during the Eclipse and the world as Sloane knew it ended. While out with her twin brother Orion and their friend Rook, both guys get attacked by vampires and go missing. Not long after that, Sloane loses her father to cancer, leaving her with her mother who cares nothing for her, blaming her for her Orion's death. So after years of training with her best friend Leo as a vampire hunter, Sloane sets out into the Red Sector in search of her brother. What sh [...]

    29. I read this book as part of the Read2Review program in the PNR & Urban Fantasy Fanatics discussion group! This program is aimed at getting lesser known authors exposure and 'chat' going about their books. The Scarlet Dagger is the perfect candidate for this kind of thing, probably not polished enough to gain a quick following, the story has a good foundation and potential. Sloane McAllister's quest to find her twin brother after the vampire rising leads her on a journey under the earth to an [...]

    30. Three years ago the Eclipse occurred. Humans were attacked by vampires. The remaining humans live in the white sector while the vampires remain in the red sector. Seventeen year old Sloane McAllister lost her twin brother Orion to the vampires that night. If there is any chance he is alive, she must try to find him. And that's why she heads to the red sector armed with a scarlet steel dagger, which is deadly to vampires. Here she meets Aden, a vampire who seems just like a human to her. She had [...]
