So, let me start by saying that people are bound to call this a police procedural/ urban fantasy. If a police procedural is what you're craving, then the book may disappoint because the author doesn't really try for a whole lot of realism or details. Also, before I start lavishing Kittredge with praise, let me just say that I was really hoping for a more complex evolution to the relationship between Luna, her cousin, Sunny, and her witch grandmother who favors Sunny over the magically challenged Luna. The most believable bad relationships are those where love and vitriol combine, and so I was hoping for and frankly anticipating a deepening of the relationship so we can see why Luna has a reason to involve herself with her grandma occasionally.

Having dispensed with the criticism, let me just say that I thoroughly enjoyed this fourth book about Nocturne City. Kittredge has become much better at plotting and pacing the suspense and action. The romantic situation, too, becomes complicated, with multiple suitors of varying degrees of dysfunction. Luna also starts to (finally) realize that her rudeness is not helpful (nor indeed all that entertaining when it is gratuitous) and seems on the verge of some much needed personal growth as she attempts to fill her new role as a police lieutenant.

In all, Kittredge's dark imagination has concocted a gritty setting, an entertaining cast of characters, and a fast-paced plot that pushes you through to the end. I look forward to reading more from her for years to come. For maximum enjoyment, you should probably start by reading the first Nocturne City Novel, Night life.

This book was such a disappointment for me, and did not live up to it's predecessors. I had a hard time even liking or respecting Luna in this book; which,for me, is essential. I couldn't believe Luna was actually in charge of her unit, and kept wondering why she hadn't been fired. Kittredge is a marvelous writer, and I love her world building. But, bottom-line for me is, I have to at least like the main character. Instead, she's got me rooting for the "bad guys". Luna is such a b*tch to everybody, even those she cares for. It's hard to have any sympathy for her, as we never have enough background to explain WHY she's the way she is. Since the writing is so well done, I'm willing to give this series another chance, and hope Luna redeems herself.

The story set in a city called Nocturne City. This city has shape-changers, witches, and demons and deomons too. And murder of people. And mysterious artifact that could open a portal. Its sort of a door between our world and another world in another reality. That could cause apocalypse for us. So two police detective were on the trail of the ones that causing the murder. They need help to stop the destructions of their city and world.

Lieutenant Luna Wilder is in charge of the SCS, the Nocturne City Police Department unit which takes care of all the supernatural cases. When fires break out all over the city, she and her team spring into action aided with the help of Fed Will Fagin. As she works feverishly to uncover the source of the fires, Luna also must deal with an old nemesis reappearing wreaking havoc on her lovelife, the changes from being in charge of her unit, and personal family issues.

I'm a first-time reader of the Nocturne City series and actually picked the book up because Jim Butcher recommended it. While the story is not as much of a favorite as the Dresden Files, I enjoyed the 'noir' feel of the city and the story's fast pace. This, for me, was a beach or a plane read.

Luna Wilder has stepped in it again! Now that Luna has been promoted to lieutenant of her very own squad, she is trying to focus on being the boss, while trying to keep her predatory were half under control. Unfortunately for Luna, her usual behavior of running off half-cocked is not going to help protect Nocturne City from the Blood witches, murderous pyromaniacs and very ravenous netherworld creatures that are invading her city.

I agree with another reviewer, if you are looking for a police procedural novel, this installment is not it. It's more like Luna flies by the seat of her pants and hopes for the best. I enjoy Luna's interaction with Lucas as oppose to Dmitri's constant quest for total domination over Luna.

A couple of things bothered me about this installment. Luna's character has matured just a bit in this installment; however she still is overly sassy and reckless. I'm also pretty disappointed in the way Luna treats her were. She pretty much ignores her were, never really enjoys that part of herself and hardly ever changes to her were to give her some freedom. It's almost as if her were doesn't exist until she needs her.

This installment was chock full of excitement, action and mystery. I highly recommend this book and series and I am looking forward to reading the next book Daemon's Mark due out 5/2010.
