This book more than lives up to it's kick butt cover art in terms of menace; fans of a darker, grittier brand of urban fantasy will love E. S. Moore's TO WALK THE NIGHT. Kat Redding stalks through the underbelly of a changed but recognizable version of our world, striking fear in the hearts of the predators that prey upon ordinary humans. It was almost impossible not to imagine Kate Beckinsale's leather-clad form as Kat, but unfortunately, no scruffy and handsome leading man appeared to fight by her side.
That lack of romance was one mark against TO WALK THE NIGHT, but my largest issue overall was the ambiguity of all the characters introduced. Everyone in this book, including Kat herself, has dark secrets and feet of clay. With so many conflicting good/evil signals bouncing around I had a hard time getting invested in any side of the conflict. There were a number of cinematic fight scenes and some interesting mythology details (I particularly liked vampire fangs cutting their gums when they emerge, a la Wolverine's claws), but pure mythology and action was not enough to keep me focused when I was unsure who I should really be rooting for.
Though things lagged for me in the middle, the book manages to end on a high note that has piqued my interest for book two. TAINTED NIGHT, TAINTED BLOOD will be available this summer, and since many of my favorite series started with a slow burning book one, I'm hoping that book two will delve a little deeper into the characters introduced in TO WALK THE NIGHT.
Sexual Content: Attempted rape, mention of sexual abuse.
The plot really hits off about halfway through, and then the story really flowed. This is a violent, gritty Urban Fantasy novel, so if you're looking for a lot of romance, this isn't the book for you. It is well written, has great flow and is easy to follow. The ride you take with Kat is an entertaining one.
Kat Redding is super badass. I mean, they call her Lady Death. I had a hard time connecting with Kat. I need to be able to relate to my heroine better than I could here, which is the only reason this didn't get four robots. I just couldn't understand some of her decisions. Regardless, there is endless action and a fascinating world that kept me flipping the pages. I highly recommend this book to any Urban Fantasy fan out there. I think E.S. Moore is really going to deliver in the sequel!
