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.
I think Kittredge was tired of the story by this point and just wanted it over with. He is not a nice man.
The plot doesn’t stick together properly, either. Decent characters, okay plot, and chock full of witches, demons, werewolves, and rumor of vampires. The only thing Hightlife didnt like was the way they described Dimitri. On kittrege fantastical side of things, it does not disappoint, and the murder mystery will have you guessing right up to the bloody climax. Its not A fellow blogger asked me why I choose the books that I do. According to the author’s website there will be at least 5 books total in the series possibly more.
He doesn’t even swear in the mother language, so I felt somewhat bereft. You may not always like the protagonist, Luna, czitlin her love interest, a drug dealer and generally not nice guy.

But, all together this book wasn’t bad, it had good writing and the world that CK created wasn’t bad, but it seems to just be an average UF amongst the many that are kittrwdge and if you are going to try Caitlin Kittredge I inghtlife recommend these first: The fact that Luna has state-of-the-art computer equipment on which she could simply print the image off is…um…well, that would require thinking.

It was a good read, funny and dark, but it just didn’t convince me Luna is a cop fighting her werewolf kiftredge, and while she’s labeled tough-as-nails, that description tends to mean aggressive, angry, and flippant in this story.
Sometimes from paragraph to paragraph she changes her attitude, things seem disconnected, as if the author wrote in chunks and forgot to connect them properly.
