Review of “Wolf Night” by Tracey Sinclair (urban fantasy)
As promised, I’m posting the review for the second novel in the Cassandra Bick Chronicles by Tracey Sinclair. Wolf Night was just as good as its predecessor. I also highly recommend the spin-off short stories by this author set in the same world. They can be just as entertaining!
After narrowly averting a supernatural war in London, Cassandra Bick just wants life to get back to normal. Or as normal as life can be when you run a dating agency for vampires, your best friend is a witch and the oldest, strongest and sexiest vampire in town is taking a very personal interest in your business. But when a vicious new supernatural enemy threatens her friends, Cass finds herself once again fighting for the fate of her city – and having to face some demons of her own.
Snarky, sexy and fast paced, Wolf Night will leave you breathless.
This book was as good, if not better, than the first one. I read the two novelettes that came between them and do recommend readers check those out. One of them gives a really good perspective to Laclos and Cain that is helpful in understanding those guys better and it was fun to watch them work together to protect Cass. Both stories are referenced in this second full-length novel.
Anyway, this installment was definitely action-packed with plenty of twists and turns to keep you guessing. Not to mention the awesome dry humor running throughout it! Cass hasn’t improved as a fighter much, but I still appreciate her bravery and effort to do the best she can despite a lack of training and experience. She had to face some things that even her powerful protectors didn’t handle so well.
It wasn’t just the plot and action that kept me going. The romantic elements were rather intense as well because poor Cass gets really torn between the two men in her life. Despite love triangles getting old, this one is so different from any others I’ve read before. You’d have to read the book to understand, but I don’t fault the heroine for her choices (even if I do secretly wish she could just have both guys). Honestly, I want the next book right now and hope the author will be getting it out soon. This is a series UF readers should be checking out. Five whips for Wolf Night!
