Thanks for this great review. I have this series on my radar to get to. I have the series Black London series. I have to agree with you on the genre and thoughts on characters.
You have to enjoy the genre area the book focuses on to really enjoy the book. But I have read reviews of different books that really hate certain characters, and I wonder if they really read into the character at all. This is a great review and I like how you touched on the way others think on the character and what you thought.

He snuck up on me in the book for some reason. At first I didn't appreciate his sexiness, distracted by the serial killing psycho Luna is trying to find and stop.
Once I did notice him things became much more interesting for me, and for Luna. Night Life is a quick read, mostly because the action and plot twists kept me on the edge of my seat, as if putting the book down would somehow hinder Luna's investigation.
The end, and especially the final showdown with the bad guy, is amazing with a plot twist I had not excepted. As far as romance, this is not a Happily Ever After book, but it still made my heart ache for Luna. She's not a happy, "let's look at the positive" person like her sister Sunny, who is trying to influence her in that department.
Luna is a good cop, a reluctant werewolf with issues, and a loyal friend. Her life is complicated, which is what makes her story a good read. Happy and simple may be awesome in real life when it's possible, but a good story it doesn't make.
I want to take a minute and address the reviews I saw on Amazon. I was really surprised to see people calling Luna "a bitch", "unlikeable" and yes, someone actually called her a "mean girl". First, I have to wonder if the reviewers truly read the book to the very end. Luna is tough, and yes, she is sarcastic and "in your face".
It's a way of protecting herself from the realities of her job, her past and the horrendous murders taking place. The other thing that bothers me is that the book is clearly marketed as a gritty urban fantasy. This genre is not for everyone. I happen to love it, and do not think it would be in the least realistic to have the heroes and heroines too "nice" or too "understanding".
Here is an example of Luna's "attitude". A fellow police officer has beaten up a kid when bringing him into the station, and has an attitude about Luna: He reached around and patted me on the bottom. But for the record, I think you are a violent, incompetent psychopath who has no business being a police officer.
The other characters in the book are varied; some are likable such as Sunny, Mac, and Dmitri, in my opinion. Some characters are distinctly unlikeable and I found each one had specific reasons for being that way.
I will be reading the other three books in the series as soon as I can. Posted by Brenda Hyde. Labels: book challenges , book review , urban fantasy. Subscribe to: Post Comments Atom.
