About the Author
M. L. Brennan lives in Connecticut with her husband and three cats. Holding a master’s degree in fiction, she teaches basic composition to college students. After spending years writing and publishing short work in other genres, Brennan decided to branch out and write the kind of book that she loved to read, resulting in Generation V, her first full-length work of urban fantasy.

This was a great follow up to Generation V. Fortitude Scott is the youngest of 3 vampire siblings. They each are progressively nicer as they get younger, and we find out why this is. I loved the more in depth look at the Scott family and how Fort came to be basically human while transitioning into a vampire.
I laugh a lot while reading this series. Brennan is great at not only weaving together a believable story with incredibly interesting supernatural elements, but also with making the characters relatable when they really shouldn't be.
My absolute favorite part of this series is the kitsune, Suzume. Her and Fort together on the page is a blend of wit and sexual tension and I love it.
Fort has grown a lot since the first one as well and I just enjoy watching that evolution. The story in Iron Night is about Fort trying to find whoever killed his roommate...right after he finally found one that he meshes well with. It was a unique and interesting journey. So this mystery/thriller aspect is entwined well with the UF universe she has built.
There's no complaints for me with this.
Fort meets a half-elf that he gets along very well with and you can see the chemistry. They are quite a lot alike. However, Suze and Fort have more chemistry and undeniable tension so it's fun to watch it play out.
A great story. There is a good dramatic mystery to sort out while learning a great deal more about this world that Brennan has made with vampires and more supernatural critters. The writing flows smoothly and there is wit and humor all throughout. I love the characters and have fun watching them grow. Recommended for Urban Fantasy fans.
"Ah, compartmentalization - my old friend."
Iron Night is as much about Fort slowing growing into his vampire side and becoming a better person as it is a story about a mystery set off by the gruesome death of Fort's roommate - a roommate that Fort got along with, liked and who actually paid the rent on time. Fort lives in a low rent area of town, works as a waiter and drives a wreck of a Fiesta. Yes, his family has incredible wealth, but Fort is trying to hang on to his human side. This is one of Fort's charms: despite being in the beginnings of his transition to full vampire he still embraces his human side and while accepting what his family is does not fully give in to them. He does however start to understand that his vampire side gives him certain physical advantages (while scaring him at the same time). Fort is also awkward with women which is incredibly charming. His internal narrative about this is particularly amusing. He's not your usual vampire!
Fort is not the only wonderful character in the series. We get to see a lot more of Prudence in Iron Night. Prudence is the oldest of the Scott siblings, is fully vampiric and is a more or less a sociopath. She's also a terrifically written character who is very, very scary especially when she is being nice. Fort's brother Chivalry is also superbly done. He's somewhat nicer than Prudence but also has no qualms about being a vampire. Both siblings care about Fort in their own unique ways. Madeline Scott (their Mom) is back as well. She's the head of the family and in control of a vast territory. Things supernatural ultimately answer to her. She is very, very frightening.
One of my favorite characters is Suzume. She is a kistune or wolf shifter. She is funny, smart, snarky, and a great person to have at your back both in a fight and just generally. She was a great help to Fort in the first novel and continues to help Fort in Iron Night.
Both novels in the Generation V series present mysteries. In Iron Night, the mystery centers around who killed Fort's roommate and why. Brennan takes mythology, makes it her own and creates a great mystery with some very interesting underpinnings. This mystery kept me guessing.
There is humor, some gore, and action. Iron Night is beautifully written, is deeply engaging and features wonderful world building and exceptional characters. This is an Urban Fantasy series that you absolutely must read and should be on your auto-buy list.
