Luna Wilder is a homicide detective in the Nocturne City PD, as well as that she is ,ittredge a werewolf, an Insoli, which means she is without a pack and must rely on herself.
I can’t tell if it’s supposed to be a trashy, violent “courtship” or if Kittredge just doesn’t know how to find that balance between a truly awkward romance and the usual “oh, I don’t want to be attracted” one.
Enabled Amazon Niightlife Sellers Rank: She also seems to have an inability to focus on any particular aspect of a case, jumping from one point to another based on others’ behaviors rather than any sense of logic. There was a lot going on and it started really slow, only picked up nighlife halfway through. Luna is a cop fighting her werewolf nature, and while she’s labeled tough-as-nails, that description tends to mean aggressive, angry, and flippant in this story.
So lets go with the things I didn’t love and we will leave the good news for last.
I couldn’t find an ounce of sympathy for her. Wouldn’t it have been considered more of a sign of “oddity” if the kid had had books instead of the trophies?? I love fantasy stories, but this pandered to the lowest levels it felt. I pushed all the way to the end, though it was a struggle. Martin’s Paperbacks first published March 1st Now Nightlife is yet another series that takes place in a world where magic exists and so do the things that go bump in the night.
She is abrasive, annoying, and I’m sorry, Holy Hexagon, talk about a disappointment! Lists with This Book. Amazon Renewed Refurbished products with a warranty. Luna’s lucky enough to have a supportive cousin and lieutenant, but she’s totally rude to them both. The sub plots are uneven though and character development is overall a little disappointing.

Dmitri isn’t much better; he is supposed to be overwrought with the loss of his mate, the first murder that Luna is investigating, yet here he is busy trying to seduce a new woman less than 24 hours after the body is found. The “heroine” if kittreddge she could be called that, doesn’t seem to have a personality, and any interaction with any other character, friend or foe, consists of her being rude and insulting them for no apparent reason.
I’ve finished reading the book and keep thinking I glossed over the part where the author gives a physical description of Luna. Top Reviews Most recent Top Reviews.
It is absolutely bullshit to call this heroine a bitch! 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?

Kittredge has Luna doing all kinds of stupid things both on and off the job.

This is exactly the same framework except Luna is a woman. And when Luna has to go into Ghosttown, to question a suspect, she knows there will be trouble, but she has no idea her entire life is about Unleash Your Inner Wolf There are a couple things about Nocturne City everyone should know.
It seriously detracts from both the plot and any sympathy I’m supposed to feel for said protagonist. Then you can start reading Kindle books on your smartphone, tablet, or computer – no Kindle device required.
