Luna Wilder is a tough and independent
cop who is working a tough city. She is also an Insoli
(lone) werewolf. This makes things even harder as she is
learning the ins and outs of being a werewolf day by day.
Luna has been called into investigate some murders which all
seem to be ritualistic in nature. Her investigation is
sending Luna into some of the worst parts of her city.
Dmitri Sandovsky is the pack leader of
the Redbacks and he is also a serious suspect in the
murders. Dmitri makes Luna mad in one way and also sends
her wolf sense into overdrive in the total other way.
Dmitri has his own reasons for wanting the murderer to be
found and its not to help out the law or the irritating
Luna and Dmitri end up working together
as the investigation leads to the demon underworld. A demon
has to be called into this world and all paths, and murders,
are leading to a magician who is an expert in black magic.
Both Luna and Dmitri are reluctant to do anything about the
pull their wolves are feeling, however it turns out that it
is that trust and blooming belief in the other that pulls
them through the night the demon comes to call.
Night Life was the
opening story in the world of Nocturne City. I was taken
pretty quickly with the trouble, independent and above all
gutsy Luna. It seems like she was always on the outside
looking in and it didnít change after she became a
werewolf. Rather it got worse. Dmitri is a tough alpha of
his pack with a chip on his shoulder concerning most
things. I was not only intrigued with the world that
Nocturne City exists in but also by the circling that Luna
and Dmitri do with each other. I will say upfront that Luna
and Dmitri do not have their happy ever after yet, however
they have started a rough and tumble relationship and I
personally canít wait for the next book in the series to
come out so I can see just where that relationship goes.
This couple will keep me on the hook until the end I have a
feeling. Night Life is listed as a dark
fantasy and it reminded me of a really well done urban
fantasy. If you are looking for a series that is
intriguing, fast paced and keeps you up late turning the
pages, then you are looking for Night Life.
