Luna Wilder has had her hands full since her promotion to Lieutenant of the SCS division of Nocturne City’s police department. Even though the division offices are kept in the basement in the attempt to achieve out of sight, out of mind, the supernatural cases keep rolling in. Luna is sent to investigate the death of a young girl werewolf. Between the threats of the girl’s pack and the Russian mob, Luna has her hands full. But this case gets to her. She has done so well caging the animal within, but this time, all her self control breaks and causes her to goes off half-cocked, getting her into all kinds of trouble. And of course, along with all the difficulties she is experiencing with the investigation, it is at this time that things come to a head in her relationship with the sexy ATF agent, Will Fagin. Will Luna be able to survive the nasty situation she has gotten herself into and return to decide what she wants out of her life?
All I have to say is what a finish!! Unfortunately, Daemon’s Mark is said to be the last book in the Nocturne City series. I have to say I am a little disappointed, but I guess all good things must eventually come to an end. I was first exposed to Ms. Kittredge’s Nocturne City series because of RT 2008, and it has been a wild ride since then. Luna is normally one tough cookie, but in Daemon’s Mark, we are exposed to a softer side of her.
I have to say, Daemon’s Mark is darker than any of the other Nocturne City series books. It is non-stop action and Luna gets herself into some scary predicaments that I was not quite sure she would be able to get out of. I think this last book opens up more questions than it answers, and it does have what I thought was a cliff-hanger ending. I am hoping that maybe someday there will be a return to Nocturne City, but that could be just wishful thinking on my part. If you have stuck with the series this long, then do not miss this final chapter. If you have not read this series at all and love crime-oriented books, then grab Night Life, the first book in the series, today.
