Editorial Reviews

Review

“Takes supernatural shadows to the next level. Kittredge knows how to create a believable world, and her fans will enjoy the mix of magic and city grit.” ―Publishers Weekly on Caitlin Kittredge's Black London series

“Crackles with conflict and perilous magic...For those who love their urban fantasy hypnotically treacherous, this book's for you!” ―RT Book Reviews on Caitlin Kittredge's Black London series

Street Magic jumps right in to non-stop supernatural action, taking urban fantasy fans on a wild ride.” ―Darque Reviews on Caitlin Kittredge's Black London series

“This is a dark, visceral read that sucks you in and doesn't let you up for air. That is part of my intense love for this series... It hit all my buttons; ghosts, magic, demons, cemeteries, England, moors, fog, supernatural creatures, ancient deities. The way things ended, I am seriously anxious to see what is happening next. Go out and get this!” ―Night Owl Romance on Caitlin Kittredge's Black London series

“Sensual and empowering.” ―Romance Junkies on Caitlin Kittredge's Black London series

Pure Blood pounds along hard on the heels of Night Life, and is every bit as much fun as the first in the series. With a gutsy, likable protagonist and a well-made fantasy world, Pure Blood is real enough to make you think twice about locking your doors at night. A swiftly-paced plot, a growing cast of solid supporting characters, and a lead character you can actually care about--Kittredge is a winner.” ―Jim Butcher on the Nocturne City novels

“I loved the mystery and the smart, gutsy heroine.” ―Karen Chance, New York Times bestselling author of Claimed by Shadow on the Nocturne City novels

“A nonstop thriller laced with a ferociously deadly menace. Count on Kittredge's heroine to never say die!” ―RT Book Reviews on the Nocturne City novels

“Kittredge takes readers on a dark adventure complete with thrills, chills, and a touch of romance. Well written...and impossible to set down.” ―Darque Reviews on the Nocturne City novels

“Fast-paced, sexy and witty with many more interesting characters than I have time to mention. I'm looking forward to reading more stories in the exciting Nocturne City series.” ―Fresh Fiction on the Nocturne City novels

From the Back Cover

The crow-mage Jack Winter returns―to crash a secret gathering of ghost hunters, soul stealers, and other uninvited guests, both dead and alive…



Normally, Pete Caldecott stays far away from magical secret societies. But ever since her partner and boyfriend Jack Winter stopped a primordial demon from ripping into our world, every ghost, demon, and mage in London has been wide awake―and hungry. And the magical society in question needs their help putting things right.

SOUL TRADE

It all begins with an invitation. Five pale figures surround Pete in the cemetery to "cordially" invite her to a gathering of the Prometheus Club. Pete's never heard of them, but Jack has―and he's not thrilled about it. Especially the part that says, "Attend or die." The Prometheans wouldn't come to London unless something big's about to go down. So Pete and Jack decide to play it safe and make nice with the club―even if that means facing down an army of demons in the process. But now that they've joined the group, they're about to discover that membership comes at a cost…and has apocalyptic consequences.

"Non-stop supernatural action… a wild ride."―Darque Reviews

Every time I expected the lead female character Pete to step up and show how strong she was, she wimped out. She and Jack, who have a newborn baby, somehow find themselves embroiled in a plot away from the baby but did not say who was watchin her, worried about her, nothing! Then someone would threaten the baby and Pete would get up in their face, throw a few words, and then.... NOTHING!!! I mean come on! Throw a punch, knee them in the groin, something... Jack is his same lackluster character. There is no passion between Pete and Jack. NONE. Save your money... I will in the future by never reading this author again.

As with most of Caitlin Kittredge's work (esp. the Black London series) this is a good book. It is well written and the characterizations are believable and apt. The storyline is a little thready but it is a quick and engaging read.

This is a novel for adults as the theme subject is mature and there are occasional sexual references.

Pete and Jack are caught in a battle between the Black and the Prometheans, a secret society. They are charged to go to a village and find out why the Soul Cage and the Black are in disarray. The Morrigan is once again trying to get her hooks into Jack.
What irritated me was Jack and Pete are again, quipping and fighting... not as much.. but still. Lily is their daughter and they just leave her with Lawrence and when the Demon comes calling at the end of the book they chart off after him and leave her again...
I just am so irritated at this series.

This series just seems to be too repetitive and dull. At least Pete and Jack work together more in this one, but barely.

I think the problem is that every time Pete and Jack defeat the Ultimate Evil the author has to create another level to the universe so that there's something new to destroy reality. Bring on something old, destroy it, bring on something older, destroy it. I just don't think the author has a real handle on her world building here, and it's really unbalanced. There's only death and evil, with no good forces to balance it all out. Not even the hint of one. You die, you'd batter hope you no longer exist at any level, 'cause there's nothing good waiting for you afterwards.

And Pete and Jack can't quit fighting. Their attraction seems to be linked to what ever their destiny is, and they need to be with each other physically, but mentally and emotionally Pete just dwells on how Jack isn't really the man she'd wanted him to be. He never really redeems himself to her, is selfish and thoughtless, and Pete's just his glorified baby sitter. She takes care of him because she must, but gripes about it every step of the way. By now, they're a couple that don't make me happy to see together, other than it means disaster is about to happen. Privately, in their spare moments, it's all arguments and trash talk.

Disappointed about Lily. There's no real description of the baby. She's like an afterthought that the author has brought in to give Pete more motivation to save the universe, which isn't needed. But even infants, (and we don't really know how old she is) have personalities. She just seems like a wasted plot-line.

We'll see in the next book if the author bothers to flesh her out or not. At this point, curiosity is what's driving me on. Not any real interest. And some hope that it'll all tie up better in the end than I think it will.

Fifth in the Black London dark urban fantasy series revolving around Pete Caldecott and Jack Winter, the crow-mage.

My Take
Oh, boy. Kittredge always keeps me in such suspense, and Soul Trade has continued the tradition...eek! It's not enough to have the Morrigan and Belial after them, Kittredge has to make it even worse, of course, it's all a result of the Nergal escaping, weakening the Black, awakening so much evil in the world, eroding the barriers between.

The series fascinates me for two different reasons: the world of magic which Kittredge has twisted into this particular realm and the dynamics between Pete and Jack. She's an angry woman with a sense of right and justice, enthralled with bad-boy Jack, and herself a powerful magical being, even if she did discover this late in life. He's a powerful mage with one heckuva lotta baggage. Part of the negative is his own attempts to drown out the overwhelming visions he has of the Black, and part is his own anger at those who pursue him for their own ends. And wouldn't it be so much easier if the demons and gods would leave him alone... Instead, our hero is a drug addict with his self-preserving morals and the language of the streets, who will protect his family. I do like his cheek!

What I don't get is, if Jack is so all-powerful, why can't he ever seem to protect himself or Pete all that well?

I did like Jack's assessment, so similar to the age-old question of what bears do in the woods:
"In other news, water is wet, Arsenal's defence is s***, and the Pope wears a silly hat."

What is it with people who think mere words make up for force and extortion?
