The only thing I didnt like was the way they described Dimitri.
The Best Books of I could have gotten past wincin I really was hoping to like this book, but it was not to be. Ilona Andrews and the Kate Daniels series is nice for the world building, detective touch. Not that that’s a bad thing, but in this case, it made it difficult to garner a lot of sympathy for her.
After some scenes, I even start doubting her intelligence.

The pack and out of it hierarchy doesn’t seem entirely logical. Diazepam is Valium which is an anticonvulsant, hypnotic, sedative, skeletal muscle relaxant occasionally used for caitlib animal sezures as well as pre operative tension reduction.
I felt like the author was battering me over the head with a metal pole to point out to me that Luna is picked on.
A lot of bark without bite and yes I meant that to be really stupid and punny. This is one of the worst books I’ve read in a long time.
In other words, I speak of the difference between having an underlying continuing story and having the end of the story essentially truncated. She’s constantly reminding him that she’s a cop; then she calls him up for backup, for a gun, for a ride nigutlife the crime scene… Luna jumps into situations without thought or investigation. Amazon Inspire Digital Educational Resources. It wasn’t because it was a deep book at all. I’ll also freely admit that I really nightllife Dmitri much more than Luna.
I read the first book in the author’s latest series and thought it was ok, so I figured I’d give this a try. The world building was very interesting I enjoyed the descriptions of the city, along with its problems, as well as the conflict between the supernatural and non supernatural worlds, nightife instance.
nigghtlife Caitlin lives in Olympia, WA with two pushy cats. Fortunately, she branched out from there and after a few years trying to be a screenwriter, a comic book writer and caitllin author of copious amounts of fanfiction, she tried to write a novel again.
And although I did like this book Kkittredge was slightly disappointed as I thought Black London was much better. I’ll give the follow up books a try. Backed by a gritty take on crime and a vivid look inside a police department leading a fight against crime out of our worst nightmares the nocturne city novels bring crime to Dark Fantasy. And she’s a nighttime cop in a supernatural city – shouldn’t she know lots more about bars, clubs, and the various forms of supes?
Welcome to Nocturne City, where werewolves, black magicians, and witches prowl the streets at night ….
The Story Girls are being horribly murdered, and Luna can’t tell anyone that it’s a werewolf. I also enjoyed the general plot, that although I guessed what who-did-it half way through, I still enjoyed learning the details and having it all revealed to me. It’s not always explained just why is she going there, saying this, insulting people left and right obviously the answer is the author wanted her to, and that’s that, only it brakes the flow of the story when I’m left thinking “the hell?
Dmitri Sandovsky is her prime suspect in the string of murders of young women. Then there’s this whole romance with Dmitri.
By the time I made it to the sex scene, I was so frustrated with the writing that I couldn’t even bear to read through the several pages of bad sex description.
She won’t let up, though, and eventually gets her perp. Things I sort of liked: This is decidedly true for Luna Wilder also, cheesy name for a pack-less werewolf.
I loved the dark, annoyed way she talked to people and I absolutely adored her “bitchy” demeanour.
