Luna Wilder is a cop in Nocturne City. Not only is she fighting crime, but she has to fight her werewolf urges as well. She's a tough-as-nails kind of gal, and she definitely exerts her powers whenever needed. She is also known as an Insoli, a werewolf without a pack, after she was turned against her will. While she investigates a string of murders, she finds they are connected to another group of murders from decades past. This leads her into a world of black magic, demons, and a powerful pack leader, Dmitri Sandovsky, as a main suspect.
Night Life is decently written. I think the world is complex as well as the characters, mostly in the prejudices amongst the different species. You know, Humans are greater than Werewolves are greater than Insoli. Luna has a lot on her plate with worrying about her next change into wolf form, her sister Sunny who is a Castor Witch being a key player in her life and even the latest investigation, the local pack leader not trusting her, and even the police force not letting her get involved.
Sometimes I found Luna to be overly rude and just plain nasty to the other characters, although some were very deserving of it. There are definitely some hot scenes. Then there are some that have a lot of blood and ritualistic murders. Which I always enjoy, but other readers may not. Luna and Dmitri are an intriguing duo, although not always a happy one. I'm sure in future books they will feature prominently, and I can't wait to see what this relationship blossoms into. One thing I found to be kind of sloppy in the books were the investigations. Luna is an officer without a partner, which just doesn't happen. Especially in the case of brutal murders taking place in Nocturne City. Although, I'm sure even if she did have a partner she would run off on her own anyway. That's just the kind of girl she is.
I found Night Life to be an easy read, and hopefully this series will be a strong contender in the Urban Fantasy world.
