Night Blade

Night Blade - J.C. Daniels Oh. My. Damn.The Kit Colbana series is written by JC Daniels, a pseudonym of Shiloh Walker. Walker is not known for giving her characters unicorns and rainbows. She puts them through hell and then brings them slowly back, though never the same. While sometimes it's a tough read, it also feels right, that recovery is never "too easy" just to get to the happily ever after.So I know all this, but still, she shocks me.I also still really want to keep reading. I will be there to read book 3. I MUST read book 3. I might embarrass myself pestering, er asking the author about it.If you haven't read Book 1, Blade Song, this part of the review is spoilery. And seriously, go read book 1.Kit's still getting used to her relationship with Damon. She hasn't seen him much because he has been "cleaning house" in the cat pack.Then an ex-lover shows up with a job she can't refuse, and soon she is working a case that makes her lie to her loved ones and involves a past she can't bear to talk about.I am stopping there with plot specifics. There is lots of action, and as usual, the dialogue is spot on.Just be prepared to get your emotions flogged.[received a review copy]
