Night Life

This is the first book in the Nocturne City series by Caitlin Kittredge.

Book Blurb:

Welcome to Nocturne City, where werewolves, black magicians, and witches prowl the streets at night.....

Among them is Luna Wilder, a tough-as-nails police officer whose job is to keep the peace. As an Insoli werewolf, Luna travels without a pack and must rely on instinct alone. And she's just been assigned to find the ruthless killer behind a string of ritualistic murders—a killer with ties to an escaped demon found only in legend…until now.

But when she investigates prime suspect Dmitri Sandovsky, she can't resist his wolfish charms. Pack leader of a dangerous clan of Redbacks, Dimitri sends her animal instincts into overdrive and threatens her fiercely-guarded independence. But Luna and Dimiri will need to rely on each other as they're plunged into an ancient demon underworld and pitted against an expert black magician with the power to enslave them for eternity…

This is the first book I've read by Ms. Kittredge and it was not bad. The book was a little slow going in spots and bogged down in others. I actually found myself skimming on a couple of occasions - but I made myself go back and read correctly. LOL

I am interested in the Luna character and anticipate reading the rest of the series. :) I am also curious to see if Dmitri makes an appearance in any of the other books.

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.

Hi Michelle!

The book still sounds pretty good, sometimes they just seem to drag in the middle.
