This exciting paranormal novel is filled with exciting action scenes, romantic entanglements and plenty of angst. This author excels in penning emotionally wrenching situations and Kit’s life has been a series of horrific experiences that have trained her exquisitely for the trials she must still face. The constant upheaval attendant upon a new Alpha establishing his rule over the entire pack adds to the tension between the two main characters but the demands upon each of them ratchets up the strain until something has to give. Unfortunately, some wounds are very difficult to heal but perhaps time will tell.
It never ceases to amaze me how some authors can develop characters who can creep into one’s life until one is weeping from the agony they are experiencing and cheering for them to conquer their obstacles but Ms Daniels excels at creating such and this book is a impressive example of her talent. There are still plenty of beings whom one thirsts to see punished for their actions and the resolution of some of the problems in this particular story are definitely not sufficient for me. Nevertheless, I must say...wow, what a ride this read is thus far. This is a gritty and ofttimes very dark read but it is an impressive example of an excellently built universe filled with interesting characters who have very realistic flaws and assets which give them depth and allure. I VERY impatiently await the next installment in this mesmerizing series.
“Night Blade” by J.C. Daniels (aka Shiloh Walker) is the fantastic addition to the paranormal series featuring feisty and self-reliant Kit Colbana and her complex life. A warrior who has been tempered by the abuse meted out by her grandmother utilizes her skills to deal with the non-human faction of society but her jobs are rarely safe or run of the mill. She has settled into her relationship with Alpha Damon Lee, head of the cat clan and they have reached a state of mutual tolerance for the risks that each faces. A dangerous combination of a binding imposed by former lover, an assignment that she cannot afford to fail and people from her past seeking vengeance all coalesce into a problem that she may not be able to handle with her usual inimitable style but almost certain defeat has never stopped Kit before. The question is, will it this time?
Kit Colbana is always biting off more than she can chew. She has a knack for finding trouble. This time, though, trouble finds her. Someone from her past drops a case into her lap that she just can’t refuse…literally.
People on the Council are dying left and right and she’s been requested to investigate the deaths. The number one suspect? Her lover, Damon. If she doesn’t clear his name, he gets a death sentence. Even if she succeeds? They still might try to execute him. Oh, and she’s not allowed to tell him about the case, either.
The stakes are high this time around, higher than they’ve ever been. Kit may be forced to pay the ultimate price to save her lover’s life…a price that could destroy her and everything she loves.
